Danielle Powell, a former student of Grace University in Omaha, was expelled for being a lesbian last year and ordered to repay scholarship funds.
She is now organizing a petition to help raise the cash.
Grace University has refused to transfer credits earned by Danielle Powell during her three-and-a-half-year enrollment until she agrees to pay $6,300.
The amount reflects the tuition of the spring semester of 2011, when administrators first discovered her sexual orientation and removed her from courses.

According to a new report, Alexandra del Pilar dated Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o for a couple months toward the end of last year.
And get this: she actually exists!
TMZ has uncovered evidence, in the form of anonymous quotes; Twitter posts; and, most damning of all, photos, that make it appear as if Te’o struck up a relationship with del Pilar – a 21-year old student at St. Mary’s College in Indiana – some time in mid-November.

The deadline for Barack Obama to reveal his college transcripts and receive $5 million from Donald Trump has passed.
But a new offer is on the table.
On a Fox affiliate in Dallas last night, Mavericks owner Mark Cuban referred to Trump’s gesture as “one of the dumbest things ever” and then made his very own pitch to The Donald:
Shave your head and a charity of your choice will receive $1 million:Mark Cuban Makes Offer to Donald Trump
Trump never did respond to Stephen Colbert offering the same amount for a ball dip, so we doubt he’ll acknowledge Cuban in this case.
Stephen Colbert has made an enticing offer to Donald Trump.
In response to Trump’s pledge that he will donate $5 million to the charity of Barack Obama’s choice, provided the President release his full college transcript, The Colbert Report host has addressed The Donald and offered the following:

Derek Jeter, the captain and starting shortstop for the New York Yankees, fractured his ankle in the 12th inning of the American League Championship Series opener this evening and will miss the remainder of the postseason.
Which, at this rate, will last approximately three more games for the Yankees.
Following a record-setting, game-tying home run by Raul Ibanez in the bottom of the ninth, the Yankees offense once again sputtered and couldn’t push anyone across the plate over the next three innings.
In the 12th, Jeter moved to his left to field a ground ball, only to tumbleMore >

That’s slightly above the 13.9 percent rate the couple paid for 2010.
