Iranian students banned

18 Feb, 2015

The University bans Iranian nationals from certain science and engineering programs blaming federal laws.

We recognize that our adherence to federal law may create difficulties for our students from Iran and regard this as unfortunate. Furthermore, the exclusion of a class of students from admission directly conflicts with our institutional values and principles. However, as with any college or university, we have no choice but to institute policies and procedure to ensure that we are in full compliance with all applicable laws.
