Norfolk, VA. (AP) – Oops, that's what students at a Virginia university are being told after a computer glitch mistakenly refunded thousands of dollars.
Officials at Old Dominion University say 55 students are being told they must reimburse the school a total of $323,000, even those who questioned the checks but were told they were legitimate.
The school's president says some students didn't take the news very well. Some students owe as much as $15,000.
Students who got the checks all started out as out-of-state students and later switched their residences to Virginia, which lowered their tuition bills. Because of the computer glitch, the students were perceived as having overpaid their tuition the entire time.
