At least two students from Nigeria who applied to a Texas college were told they wouldn't be admitted because of Ebola.
Kamorudeen Abidogun, a Texas man originally from Nigeria, said he received two rejection letters from Navarro College, a two-year community school 60 miles from Dallas, where a Liberian man died and two health aides are being treated for the disease. Abidogun told CNBC on Tuesday the rejection letters were addressed to two of five of his relatives in Nigeria who applied to the school and were using his Richmond home as a mailing address.
"I received, last weekend, two rejection letters ... saying the reason why they were not giving admission was ... Ebola," said Abidogun, a mechanical engineer. He said he was "disappointed" by the school's explanation.
A copy of the letter he provided to CNBC carries the signature of Navarro College's international programs director, Elizabeth Pillans.
