What is this lawsuit about?
A Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit against Southern New Hampshire University (“SNHU” or “Defendant”). The class action lawsuit involves whether SNHU breached its contract with its students to provide in-person educational services for the Spring 2020 Semester by transitioning to remote learning in March 2020 without issuing partial tuition and fee refunds.
How do I know if I am part of the Settlement?
You are included if you are an SNHU student or former student who paid or on whose behalf payment was made to SNHU for Spring 2020 Semester tuition and fees for in-person educational services, and whose tuition and fees have not been refunded.
What does the Settlement provide?
A Settlement Fund has been created totaling $1,250,000.00. Class Member payments, and the cost to administer the Settlement, the cost to inform people about the Settlement, attorneys’ fees (inclusive of litigation costs), and an award to the Class Representative will also come out of this fund
Those included in the Settlement will be eligible to receive a pro rata (meaning equal) portion of the Settlement Fund, which will be based on the total out-of-pocket amount of tuition and fees you paid for the Spring 2020 Semester.
