The School for International Training, a study abroad provider with hundreds of students, has not followed the lead of many higher education institutions and is refusing to even partially refund the room & board costs that students paid after the cancellation of their programs.
SIT must acknowledge that this unprecedented situation impacts students equally (if not more) than it does their institution, and that the economic burden of keeping their institution afloat should not fall on students. Any recoverable room and board money should be returned to students who, since their repatriation home, have now been double-paying for food, etc.
