My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: New York. With all the tuition increases at schools around the country, I was wondering if schools can legally increase tuition mid-semester. I paid off my full balance and at the end of the semester my school announced a tuition increase effective immediately and has since charged my account almost an additional $1000 even though I finished taking my finals for the semester. Can they do this? I don't mind paying the increase at the start of next semester, but it seems like there should be a law that once I agreed to the terms they can't change them whenever they want to.
