A Salem College student who is completing surgery to transition from a woman to a man is asking to stay on the campus of the all-female school.
The Winston-Salem Journal reported (http://bit.ly/13p80MB) that college spokeswoman Michelle Melton declined to identify the student, who wants to remain on campus after having surgery in February.
Salem College has some male students, but the school's website says only female students are allowed to live on campus.
The school is looking into whether to create a policy on transgender students. Trustees chairman Charles Blixt says the trustees have no timetable for a decision.
He says trustees will seek opinions of the Salem College president, alumnae and others.
