College expels lesbian, demands financial aid repayment

OMAHA, Neb. -- A woman contends she was expelled from Grace University in Omaha a semester before her graduation because she is a lesbian.

Danielle Powell, 24, said Tuesday she enrolled in the fundamentalist Christian university in 2007 but was expelled last year after school authorities learned she had a relationship with a female student.

Although Powell has moved on, marrying a different woman, she is still caught in a dispute with Grace officials over financial aid. She says the university has denied release of her transcripts, preventing her enrollment in another university.

Grace officials say that's not true and that they have been willing to provide transcripts and transfer her credits.
