Dismissal of plaintiff's action against the Indiana University School of Optometry arising from his expulsion from the school is affirmed as the court correctly concluded that plaintiff failed to point to any specific promise that the university made which established that plaintiff might have had an entitlement to a continuing education or any other entitlement. As such, plaintiff's complaint failed to contain enough information to state a legally cognizable claim.
