JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - The University of North Florida says a self-proclaimed Nazi will be allowed to stay in school, but remains banned from campus.

The Times-Union reports that 37-year-old Ken Parker was suspended recently after posting on social media an image of him holding an assault rifle and vowing to take action against fellow students who question his beliefs. Parker previously served as the grand dragon of the Jacksonville Ku Klux Klan.

With his suspension lifted but his ban from campus in place, Parker's instructors will have to sort out ways for him to get his lessons off campus or online. Parker is a junior studying political science.

A second hearing on Parker's status will be held before the spring term.
