Students enrolled in online classes at the University of South Florida were overcharged nearly $8.6 million over the last three years, according to a recent audit reported on by the Tampa Bay Times.
The overcharges were on fees for “distance learning” meant to cover the cost of developing remote learning curricula. However, the report found the school’s revenue from the fees exceeded costs by $8.56 million.
It was unclear whether USF planned to issue refunds to overcharged students, but a spokesperson told the Times they were looking into that option.
The overcharges were the only negative found in the audit.
