Uncle Sam's money is no longer welcome at Grove City College.
The western Pennsylvania private college is sick of all the regulations involved with federal student loans, so it has decided to refuse the money and start its own loan program.
"They want to know the size of our faculty, the salary of our faculty, the number of women on our athletic department," Lee Wishing, a college spokesman, said Wednesday. "These things have nothing to do with student loans whatsoever."
Grove City joins Hillsdale College in Michigan in its refusal to comply with the more than 7,000 regulations of the federal student loan program. Others are considering doing the same thing, according to the Association of Independent Colleges and Universities.
"There is a substantial amount of sympathy out there for what Grove City has done," said David L. Warren, president of the 900-member association.
