Some people go to school to learn things, not just for credits or a degree.

My law school actually had an instance of having to basically offer a free class to people who were in a visiting professor's class. She turned out to be pretty unhinged, taught very little, and what she taught wasn't a very relevant version of the subject. The students got credit for her class, and could have graduated with a degree. It's a subject that's on the bar exam though, and could be relevant to people's careers to actually know the subject, so the school scheduled a series of "review classes" for the students who were affected.
