Rutgers University in New Jersey agreed to settle a class-action lawsuit filed by a parent against the school, who argued that their daughter did not receive the college education they paid for when the campus went all virtual in spring of 2020.

On Friday, Rutgers agreed to pay a $5 million settlement on behalf of everyone who paid Rutgers Spring 2020 semester fees. New Jersey Superior Court Judge Alberto Rivas approved the settlement last week: It means all 64,500 Rutgers undergrads who paid spring 2020 tuition will get about a $63 refund, NJ Spotlight reported.

Although the refund is very small, Rutgers appears to be the first college in America that closed because of coronavirus and is now giving refunds acknowledging the differences in in-class and online learning.
