ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) The U.S. Department of Education is investigating a graduate student's allegation of racial discrimination against St. Cloud State University.

The allegation is contained in documents obtained from the department through a federal Freedom of Information request.

The graduate student was in the Twin Cities Graduate Center, a St. Cloud State program in Maple Grove. She alleges she was dismissed from school in December and not allowed to graduate because she informed the university that a professor was discriminating against black students.

The name of the student is not listed in the documents.

A special adviser to SCSU President Earl Potter says someone can file a complaint, but "It doesn't mean something was done wrong."
