"Grove City College v. Bell", 465 U.S. 555 (1984), was a case in which the United States Supreme Court held that Title IX, which only applies to colleges and universities that receive federal funds, could be applied to a private school that refused direct federal funding, but where a large number of students had received federally funded scholarships. The Court also held that the federal government could require a statutorily mandated "assurance of compliance" with Title IX, even though no evidence had been presented to suggest that the Grove City College discriminated in any way. However, the Court also held that the regulation would only apply to the institution's financial aid department, not to the school as a whole.
