CHICO, Calif. - Chico State students are still getting the education they paid for but the dorms, lecture halls, and libraries are empty as the university has online-only classes.

Vice President for Business and Finances at Chico State, Ann Sherman, said reimbursements will be going to students that paid for housing, dining, parking decals, and recreational services for the semester.

“The main part that I heard of getting a refund is parking, like if you had a parking permit or something like that they’ll refund you for the rest of the semester,” Katie Dahl, Political Science major at Chico State said.

Sherman said Butte County Public Health asked Chico State to restrict students from being on-campus to help limit the spread of coronavirus.

Students that have been accommodated may have a delay in their refunds, Sherman said. She wants students to know if you have not gotten your refund it can take up to four weeks to process.

“We really have been focused on helping to ensure students have a successful term, wherever they might find themselves, and for a number of students they needed to have their housing refunds in order to find housing wherever they might be," Sherman said. "So we really worked hard to make sure we responded quickly on that.”

Sherman tells Action News Now that refunds were processed on March 22, 2020.

“The reimbursements will depend on whether or not services can still be offered, the campus, as you know, is still open, classes are still happening, and student services are still happening,” Sherman said.

Due to all the reimbursements, only those areas will be taking a hit but Sherman says as a whole, Chico States finances are still ok.

Sherman tells Action News Now she hopes the fees being reimbursed will help students pay back some of their debt to Chico State.

“I'm scared about not knowing exactly when I'm going to graduate and reimbursement? I'm not exactly sure about reimbursement, I think that we're probably going to be postponed, so they're going to compensate for that,” John Ubaldi, CSU Communication major said.

Regarding graduation fees, it is too soon to know if graduation will be virtual or not so those fees may not be reimbursed, Sherman said.
