HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) - Students who attend state colleges and universities will receive a credit for their unused room and board.

Mark Ojakian, president of the Connecticut State Colleges and Universities system, announced the credit on Wednesday.

“This is a complex process, but our universities are working to issue credits and refunds as expeditiously as possible,” Ojakian said. “We understand that these housing refunds are important monetary sources for our students as they begin to adjust to a new normal of online learning. I applaud the leaders of our universities for taking this important action.”

Schools within the CSCU shifted the spring semester to online in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.
