BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Louisiana State University say they've begun the process of ejecting dozens of students from the institution they say have not followed COVID-19 vaccination rules.

LSU spokesman Ernie Ballard said Wednesday that the university has started to unenroll 78 students for not following the COVID-19 vaccination rules. Ballard said the goal had been to get everyone in compliance, but the 78 students who are not are now being contacted to let them know they are no longer enrolled.

In August, LSU President William Tate said students would have to show proof of their first vaccine dose by Sept. 10 and show proof of full vaccination by Oct. 15.
