LANDER, Wyoming — Wyoming Catholic College in Lander has elected not to participate in the federal student loan and grant programs.
College President Kevin Roberts says the college wants to keep itself free of federal government influence and control.
He tells KCWY-TV (http://bit.ly/1DrCrRi ) that the college isn't making a moral claim about other colleges or even the federal government.
But Roberts says with federal programs comes federal strings on hiring, admissions and even public restroom facilities.
Wyoming Catholic College offers its own student loans and grants with interest rates comparable to federal loans.
Roberts says the college is increasing its fundraising efforts to continue to bolster its student loans and grants.
