FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Roughly 200 students at Kentucky State University were cutting class this last week, but not getting in trouble for it.
The school had cut classes for them.
The Frankfort university sent an email to hundreds of students on Wednesday saying they had been dropped from their courses and would have until the late registration date on Friday to make a minimum payment on their accounts.
University spokeswoman Felicia Lewis says students received the notices because they did not make their minimum required payment as part of the new KSU Student Balance Required Payment Schedule.
The KSU Student Balance Required Payment Schedule is designed to require students to pay off a portion of the balance on their account that has accumulated from previous semesters.
