Auburn University Being Sued for Wrongfully Charging Students
Auburn University is being sued by a father and his daughter for $10 million after accusing the university for wrongfully charging in-state students with more expensive out-of-state tuition. The father says they live in the east Alabama city of Valley, but previously lived in Georgia. In-state tuition to the university for undergraduates is more than $5,700 per semester, while out of state tuition is more than $15,000.
The lawsuit claims that the daughter qualifies for in-state tuition, but Auburn is charging her out-of state tuition instead. Her father says university officials have refused appeals and other families are currently having the same problem.
