U of M Regents to discuss room and board reimbursements

The University of Minnesota Board of Regents will hold a special meeting on April 3 to discuss housing and meal plan reimbursements for students. Students were notified they would be reimbursed for around $1,200 of the $5,000 average paid even though about half the semester remained.

The reimbursement rates were made at the administrative level, and the Regents did not act on it as part of a regular meeting. There will likely be more information after the Friday meeting. MinnState is refunding money to students on a prorated basis.
