Former Daymar College students have few days left to file settlement claims

Former Daymar College students have until Thursday to file a settlement claims form with the Kentucky Attorney General’s Office of Consumer Protection.

Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway announced the $12.4 million settlement in December for students who attended the college between 2006 and 2011.

The lawsuit claims the school misrepresented students’ ability to transfer credits, denied access to financial aid to buy books anywhere other than their bookstore and failed to hire qualified students.

Conway’s office says 8,247 students are eligible to split $1.2 million and have their debt forgiven by the college.

Of those students, Conway’s office says 2,425 claims have been received.

Claims must be returned to the attorney general’s office no later than Thursday, Dec. 10.
