Penn COVID Refund Settlement
The COVID pandemic created unprecedented challenges for colleges and universities to continue their operations – challenges that the University of Pennsylvania met with the extraordinary efforts of faculty and staff who worked tirelessly to support students in their studies. We also recognize that some of our students experienced unique challenges in continuing their academic programs remotely during the spring of 2020, and they sought compensation for charges that were paid anticipating in-person attendance. To resolve these claims, Penn has agreed to settle a putative class action lawsuit filed on behalf of students who were enrolled in the spring 2020 semester. More information about the settlement, including which current and former students may be entitled to any settlement proceeds, is available.
