Morehouse College in Atlanta will begin accepting Transgender men as students next year.

The school’s board of trustees approved the policy Saturday.

Students who self-identify as men can enroll at the all male school, beginning in the fall of 2020.

Transwomen will not be allowed…and anyone who transitions or begins to self-identify as female during their time at Morehouse will not be eligible to get a degree from the college.

The move comes after Spelman College, a private historically black all-women’s school in Atlanta, adopted a similar gender identity policy in 2017.
