GWU students get money back for classes that weren't taught

George Washington University students will get their money back for classes that were never taught by a professor who resigned last week.

Students received “A” grades in two courses taught by Venetia Orcutt, but at least three students wrote letters to GW's provost complaining that Orcutt did not teach the classes. In the letters, the students claim they were never told why the classes weren't taught.

Students will be refunded tuition and allowed to keep their class credits, according to a statement the university released Wednesday.
