Seventy former nursing students who attended Loyalist College in Belleville, Ont. in 1997 and 1998 have won their case against the school, reports the Belleville Intelligencer.
The college told students that they could earn a four-year degree from Queen’s University, but Queen’s decided not to offer such degrees and students never got those credentials. A judge decided that Loyalist breached its contractual obligations with students by not providing degrees. Loyalist must reimburse students’ legal costs and further compensation may yet be announced. Even then, the matter may not be over. Loyalist has filed a lawsuit against Queen’s.
