CARBONDALE, Ill. (WJPF) — With in-person classes at SIU suspended for the rest of the semester and graduation ceremonies postponed for now, many students and their parents are feeling short-changed.

In an interview Monday with Newsradio WJPF, SIU Chancellor John Dunn says it’s a complicated process, but rebates for housing and fees will be going out.

“We will though go through a process of rebating both for housing and also for fees. We’re just going to have to try figure out how to work through that in a way that’s fair and equitable. It’s a lot of financial cost, but it’s the right thing to do. Another thing we could, if the student is a freshman or sophomore, we could credit on their account such that they have money moving forward.”
