Jones v. University of Charleston was a controversial Supreme Court ruling in 1923 that stated that a private university could set its own admissions standards and bar black men or women from attending because they do not receive federal funding, thus affirming its own standard set in 1917's Franklin v. Mississippi while also providing a gaping loophole in that law, as it would allow universities to set discriminatory policies at will so long as they declined funding from the federal government. This ruling was overturned in 1955's Tully v. Georgia.
