University presidents in Kansas say they want to know if students have been kicked out of school or criminally convicted for sexual assault before admitting them.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports that university presidents gave their stamp of approval Wednesday to a proposed Kansas Board of Regents policy.
The policy would require state universities to add nonacademic misconduct transcript notations for students expelled for forcible sex offenses or other serious personal offenses.
Sexual assault questions also would be asked during admission and re-admission in an attempt to catch prior offenders coming in from community colleges or out-of-state schools.
Never miss a local story.
The policy could go before the full Board of Regents as early as February. If approved, the policy would go into effect on July 1, 2017.
