The University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) announced today an emergency admissions policy to assist students who were already admitted or enrolled at colleges and universities affected by Hurricane Katrina.
"Hurricane Katrina is having such a catastrophic impact on the lives of so many people," said UMD Chancellor Kathryn A. Martin. "UMD wants to do what it can to assist students from Minnesota and elsewhere who were to start college classes in regions affected by the hurricane. UMD will expedite admissions for fall semester (which begins Tuesday, September 6) and spring semester, for impacted students."
The policy for hurricane-affected students includes:
UMD will also do whatever is possible to provide research labs for university staff and faculty.
ANY STUDENT, AFFECTED BY HURRICANE KATRINA, WHO IS INTERESTED IN ATTENDING UMD SHOULD CONTACT VICE CHANCELOR BRUCE GILDSETH AT 218 726-8501 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Media requesting to interview a student should contact Susan Beasy Latto at 218 726-8830 or email@example.com
UMD will work with students to determine whether or not they wish to speak to the media.
If a student is willing to speak to the media, UMD will respond to your request.
