The University of South Carolina stated in a press release Wednesday that they will be issuing refunds to their students after switching to online classes due to the coronavirus.

These refunds include the payments towards meal plans, parking permits and on-campus housing. But tuition and academic fees will not be refunded, as classes are still taking place online.

Students will be receiving the appropriate amount that would have covered the costs from March 16th, when the campus was closed, to the end of the semester.

This decision comes in response to the affects of the growing COVID-19 cases in the state.

Refunds are being processed and are expected by April 22nd.

Fraternities and sororities are responsible for refunds related to housing and meal plans they provided to their Greek life students.


Clemson University announced Wednesday that it will be issuing refunds to students for housing, meal plans and other student fees.

Students will receive the amount that would have covered March 23rd through the end of the semester, as this was when the school’s spring break ended.

This decision came after a unanimous vote from the university’s Board of Trustees in response to the changes caused by COVID-19.

Refunds will start being processed this week and are expected by April 10th.
