Becker College Closing


 

          We call on Becker College and the Board of Trustees to release a timeline in which they knew the possibility of suspending full operations. There is evidence that the school knew prior to bringing students back for the spring 2021 semester. Had students known of this possibility they may have been able to make more cost effective education plans as well as plans which correspond to their personal safety during the Covid-19 Pandemic.

          This lack of communication impacts not only students but also their families. Had students known that  full operations of campus were unforeseen they likely would not have returned. Therefore, Becker College waited until students returned, and paid their bills for the full amount of tuition and room and board. 

           Opening campus this Spring required additional safety protocols translating to additional costs for the College. The students call for full transparency. Becker College pursued a route which goes against the educational pursuits of their students.

The average student at Becker College has to take out 25% more per year in student loans than the average college graduate. With this in mind, the students at Becker College are now asking where has our money gone and how has it dissipated at such speed that some of us may be unable to finish our degrees at the college we selected.
