Washington: At least 25 out of total 60 Indian students were reportedly asked to leave their computer science programme right after the first semester at the Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green of United States (US) on Monday.

According to the varsity, the students had to quit as they did not meet its admission standards.

The move may force the students to return to India or find placement in another programme or varsity in US. Earlier, the students were lured by a recruitment campaign, which promised them of tuition discounts as well as spot admissions in a US varsity.

“Almost 40 of the students could not meet the admission requirements, even after they were offered remedial help by the university. While some of them will be allowed to remain, at least 25 of the students must leave,” said James Gary – chairman of the varsity’s computer science programme.

Highlights:

  • The university used international recruiters to find the students and paid them based on the number of students they enrolled.
  • The students were expelled from the varsity owing to their inability of writing computer programs, a necessary part of the curriculum.
