My daughter started U of A last year, before covid.  Since we weren’t able to attain student loans we literally paid for almost everything ourselves (plus a few very nice relatives...).  We were just so thrilled to have our first university attendee in the family!  

FACTS:

  1. U of A closed it’s campus during spring break 2020 (due to Covid) giving students and parents 4 days notice to pick up their things and go.
  2. My daughter was prohibited in going back to her dorm room in spring 2020 at U of A.
  3. My daughter wasn’t able to spend spring 2020 semester in her dorm room.
  4. My daughter was not able to use her 2020 meal plan because the school was closed.
  5. My daughter spent spring 2020 semester at home (San Clemente, CA) with us 24/7 studying online - not in a classroom in Tucson Arizona.
  6. My daughter took self led classes online, without instruction.
  7. The expensive study books we had to buy for 2nd semester were not needed since their were no classes to be held.
  8. Teachers were not able to teach.
  9. U of A didn’t allow any students or parents back to campus (outside of picking up their belongings/making a 2 day trip in doing so) since March 5, 2020.

My daughter (only her name/parents not included) just received a collection letter from “Williams and Fudge” for $10,426.75.   It’s for the semester my daughter was told she couldn’t live, eat or study at UA due to it’s closure.  I know there’s a lot of parents suing the university but I’d prefer not to litigate if possible.  I’m bent/determined to find an advocate for this issue (one that millions of people have!!!) and always expect to be successful.

I want U of A to do the right thing; to stop collection action immediately.  My daughter is a 4.0 student, is eager to learn and is accomplished for her age.  She doesn’t deserve a Collection Account, that’s ridiculous.  My gal is the Chief Marketing Officer of a non profit foundation/501c3 at 19 and has a paid internship with a major Ad Agency.  Unfortunately a lot of teenagers in dorms want to party-party-party but she keeps her nose to the grindstone, at all times.  Since then she’s transferred to a college closer to home (quarantining reasons) and like other universities is learning 100% remotely.

I’m pleading with the powers that be:  PLEASE give us some grace or latitude...like the SBA or government did for the you/the University of Arizona, with all the Covid Relief funding the school received.   “Due unto others”?  U of A wouldn’t have been able to operate OR function w/out having received relief assistance, so wouldn’t proper thing/The Right Thing To Do be... to pay it forward?  By retracting/backing out the invoicing for a non existent 2nd spring semester??
