Remember that story you read in the Journal in August titled, "Fee-For-All"?
In it Ryan Burns detailed how, "For six years, CR illegally heisted hundreds of Hamiltons from students." It seems the College of the Redwoods was charging students for tests the state had already paid for.
Today we received a press release that admits the mistake:
CR may owe you a refund
College of the Redwoods is looking for students who may be entitled to a refund.
If you were charged a $10 fee for retaking math and English assessment tests between July 2003 and Spring 2009, you may are entitled to a refund. CR mistakenly charged this fee.
CR is trying to locate affected students so that we can mail them a refund check. To receive a refund, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and include:
- Your CR ID number.
- Your current mailing address
- Your best estimate of the, date, month or time period when you retested for math and English placement.
