DCC sued by students over police foundations course

October 30, 2018

Three former students are suing Discovery Community College, a private career college in Surrey, BC, for refunds averaging $10K each. The students claim that they were led to believe that the college's police foundations course would lead to a “rewarding career in police services.” Multiple law enforcement agencies that the students contacted, however, reportedly “denied any kind of ... acceptance of this program.” The students are suing the college to recover tuition funds that average $10K. “We have investigated the complaints and believe they are without foundation,” said DCC Director of Education Patrick Kelly. “As the name of the program indicates, the PF (police foundations) program is a foundation program.” None of the claims have been proven in court. CBC
