PROVO, UT (KUTV) — A student suing Brigham Young University claims he didn't get the education he paid for after in-person classes were canceled in March because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Chase Hiatt, an undergraduate student, claims in the federal lawsuit that the online classes were "subpar" compared to in-person classes.

"In short, plaintiffs and the members of the class have paid for tuition for a first-rate education and an on-campus, in person educational experience, with all the appurtenant benefits offered by a first-rate university, and were provided a materially deficient and insufficient alternative, which alternative constitutes a breach of the contracts entered into by plaintiffs and the class with the university," the lawsuit states.

Claims in the lawsuit include breach of contract and unjust enrichment, based on that BYU priced its tuition and mandatory fees on the in-person educational services, experiences and opportunities.

Isn't BYU cheap as fuck?
It's $5,700 if you are only looking at the bare minimum tuition fee for out-of-state students.

But it will cost you $18,370 if you consider the living expenses on top of the tuition fees.

Provo, UT ain't cheap. (And I've just been there on a trip to the Arches National Park last year.)

Compared to pretty much any school in the US that is pretty cheap. My local college is 7,000 for IN state.

  • The Helper The Helper:
    That is why I did not take the job Blizzard offered me back in the day, there is no way I could have moved my family there on what they were offering, not even close and that was like 20 years ago
  • The Helper The Helper:
    yeah they wanted me on the tech support team when they did not get me they got one of the next MVPs in Dinobot
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Dinobot was one of the youngest of the MVPs tkron probably could have worked for Blizzard but he had a good job in Chicago doing business programming already
  • The Helper The Helper:

    I've got some friends in animation department who have been applying for Blizzard, doing interviews and such. They said the workplace seems nice, though now it'd be all remote work I suppose
  • The Helper The Helper:
    good for them I live close to Austin and am trying to get my kids interested in getting into Games but not having much luck. I would never let them move to Cali.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    unless it was huge money
  • The Helper The Helper:
    and even then with the taxes I really could never let them move there
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    Haha fair enough, I have no interest in CA at all as a living place either. Really only here just for the work in LA, but hopefully once I get settled enough in my work, I can move out
