Homeless Man Challenging Two Universities In Court

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A homeless man with his eyes set on a college degree is challenging two Florida universities in court.

The Orlando Sentinel (http://bit.ly/KFbcO8 ) reports James Ross is suing Valencia College and Full Sail University under a little known state provision that allows the homeless to attend the state’s universities colleges and trade schools without paying tuition.

Ross lives in a tent in the woods. Finding work has been a challenge and so he’s decided to go to college.

When he went to apply at Valencia, Ross said the computer wouldn’t process his application without paying a fee. He went to the college’s business office but he said they turned him away. Full Sail was not accommodating either.

Attorneys for both schools have filed a motion to dismiss.
