    Hello everyone!

    Louisiana has become the first state in the country to prohibit its public colleges from asking applicants about their criminal histories. With the exceptions of convictions for aggravated sexual assault and stalking. (Those applicants who are rejected because of this exception are allowed an appeals process, however.)

    The hope is that this allows more ex convicts to more successfully reintegrate into society after completing their sentences. The public Louisiana schools will still be able to inquire about criminal histories when awarding financial aid and allotting campus housing.

    Best of luck with your applications!

    I hope someone compares their crime rates to other public universities.
