Student files $2,991 claim against Ohio University for cost of two classes

OU student Alison Sawmiller filed a claim for compensation for monetary damages for two classes she alleges she took on recommendation from an OU advisor.

An Ohio University student filed a court claim for $2,991 against OU on Tuesday.

Alison Sawmiller is claiming compensation for monetary loss from two classes taken at OU, according to the claim form filed in the Ohio Court of Claims. 

Sawmiller alleged that OU advisor Deb Rezabek suggested she take courses in pursuit of a license that did not exist, according to court documents.

Rezabek is no longer employed by the university, OU spokeswoman Katie Quaranta said in an email.

According to OU's website, Rezabek was an assistant professor of human and consumer sciences. 

Sawmiller alleged she took two classes for an alternative license in family and consumer sciences during summer 2013-14 and the fall 2014-15 semester, according to court documents.

According to the documents, Sawmiller received a letter from OU saying there was “currently no alternative license in FCS available in the State of Ohio.”

Sawmiller could not be reached for comment as of press time.
