Due to the recent pandemic of COVID-19, students at East Tennessee State University have been forced to move all classes online. This has altered the learning experience of all students, who paid exorbitant amounts of tuition and fees for on-campus classes at the beginning of the semester. Many students have laboratory classes, which are an activity that can only be completed in-person for the full academic experience. As such, students are no longer receiving the education that they paid for.

Though the classes are now taught in an online format, several teachers are refusing to use resources that would ensure student success and satisfaction, like zoom or tegrity. Simply having access to generic book publisher's power point notes do not constitute having classroom instruction. Many students are relegated to teaching themselves using tools like Khan Academy to rather than turning to their professors for help.

ETSU has repeatedly raised tuition costs over the years and students are paying more than ever before for classes. Now they are no longer receiving services for payments rendered. Please consider forgiving a portion of tuition and fees to all students attending on-campus classes at ETSU.
