Some students sued Rutgers University for closures during the first wave of COVID-19 in the spring of 2020, alleging they were entitled to refunds of on-campus tuition, fees and other charges after the school went to remote instruction. Rutgers has agreed to pay $5 million, which will be evenly divided among roughly 64,500 students, minus about $950,000 in legal fees.
