Florida University bans sex offenders, most felons from attendance

The Edison State College Board of Trustees at the Florida University, on Tuesday, passed an admissions policy which will permanently ban convicted sex offenders and some felons from attending the university.

The ban took effect immediately upon passage, NBC2 News reported, but it will take some convictions into consideration for admission, based on several variables.  

Those variables include the age of the person at the time they committed the crime, whether or not that individual took steps towards rehabilitation, and the nature of the crime, such as whether it involved children.

Florida laws allow Edison College to consider the past actions of anyone applying for admission, according to Wink News.
