Texas College Rejects Nigerian Applicants, Cites Ebola Cases

At least two students from Nigeria who applied to a Texas college were told they wouldn’t be admitted because of Ebola.

Kamorudeen Abidogun, a Texas man originally from Nigeria, said he received two letters from Navarro College, a two-year community college with a campus about 58 miles from Dallas. Abidogun has five relatives in Nigeria who were applying to the school and who were using his home in Richmond, Texas, as a U.S. mailing address, he told CNBC.

The college rejected the applications, citing confirmed Ebola cases in the country as the reason for the admissions decision.

“I received, last weekend, two rejection letters … saying the reason why they were not giving admission was … Ebola,” said Abidogun, who is a mechanical engineer. He said he was “disappointed” in the school’s stated policy.
