I’m signing because the financial burden to receive a higher education is already a leading cause of this nations financial crisis let wine the overwhelming burden of the pandemic. UGA you have an opportunity to help your students stay in school but attend from the safety of their homes and yet you are binding them into a debt they won’t be able to recover from.

This could have been prevented by knowledge and planning. It was apparent everyone needs to isolate to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Assuming they could be on campus and in the dorm frankly was irresponsible. Refund fully

This is effectively theft - usury.

The school knew,long ago, many students may not be able to attend in person as a result of Covid19 - and should have prepared accordingly, and with all due timeliness and administrative forgiveness.

Unacceptable and exploitative, from those oft-incapable of supporting it.

Because if I were still a student housing resident (I have not been since my first year of college, I am an alumna and current grad student here now) I would be livid at being extorted by the university for services I was not rendered.

Students shouldnt have to pay for a cancellation in order to prioritize their health in the midst of a pandemic.

It is so wrong and economically discriminatory to not allow UGA students to decide in the place of their best health.
