Arkansas Universities Offer to Take in Louisiana Students Displaced by Hurricane Katrina


Louisiana college students displaced by Hurricane Katrina because of major damage and destruction to their campuses can pick up classes at University of Arkansas System schools, Arkansas education officials said this week.

“We believe the most immediate help we can give is to see that these students not lose a semester,” University System president B. Alan Sugg said.

The offer was made to Louisiana schools in a news release. Mississippi and Alabama schools were not mentioned.

Arkansas schools participating include Arkansas State University, Arkansas Tech University, Henderson State University, Southern Arkansas University and the University of Central Arkansas. Two-year schools are expected to make similar provisions, the release said.

The offer is good for students attending Dillard University, Loyola University-New Orleans, Our Lady of Holy Cross College, Southern University-New Orleans, Tulane University, University of New Orleans and Xavier University of Louisiana.

Sugg said that out-of-state tuition will be waived for the current semester only and will apply to tuition and fees only. Housing is not included and students curriculums will be accommodated as each school is able.
