College students, class action lawsuit push back on UC and CSU campus fees

Sophomore Rosie Oganesian, who attends UC Irvine, said the education she was expecting isn’t quite the same as having her classes moved online.  … And while classes have changed, the tuition and fees outlined for UC Irvine students have not. “It’s just frustrating to see how if it’s all online, if we can’t go to class, if we’re not going to be able to use those, we still have to pay for those amenities that we’re not using,” Oganesian said. That’s why she created the No Students Left Behind petition in hopes of reducing tuition and fees for her campus and others nationwide. Spectrum News 1 reached out to the University of California about the fees. In a statement they responded: “In many areas, the University faces increased— not lower— costs due to the pandemic and remote operations.”
