OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Two Oklahoma City Community College employees have been suspended amid an investigation into allegations of enrollment fraud at the institution.

The Oklahoman reports that the two employees were suspended with pay on Aug. 11, the same day a judge authorized the seizure of seven computers during a search at the OCCC Family and Community Education Center.

According to a search warrant affidavit, an OCCC employee told authorities that her supervisor was altering enrollment information and test scores in an effort to gain money for state and federal grants.

OCCC spokesman Cordell Jordan declined to identify the suspended employees pending the outcome of the investigation.
