University of Akron students sue school over doctoral program's loss of dual accreditation

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Thirteen current and former University of Akron students have sued the college over the loss of accreditation of a unique doctoral program in marriage counseling and therapy.

Lawsuits filed Thursday in Summit County Common Pleas Court accuse the university of engaging in unfair consumer practices by launching an aggressive marketing campaign to highlight the program's dual-accreditation status to coax students to enroll, only to lose its dual-accreditation in August 2017.

Those students -- some of whom left careers and moved out of state to enroll in the program -- took on financial debt in student loans, moving expanses, lost income from their careers and other, the suit says.

The students are seeking at least $25,000 in damages and asked a judge to allow them to make their case to a jury.
