Oral Roberts University will pay more than $300,000 to settle allegations of violating the ban on incentive compensation.

Federal prosecutors say ORU paid recruiting company Joined, Inc. a share of the tuition from students who enrolled.

As part of the settlement, Joined, Inc.'s co-owner will receive $45,000 for being a whistle-blower.

The settlement does not require the university to admit any wrong-doing.

ORU says the allegations are false, and it only settled to end the litigation.
