Rutgers offers help for New Jersey students displaced by Katrina
August 31, 2005, 7:13 PM EDT
NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. -- Rutgers University will provide "visiting student" status to New Jerseyans who attend colleges and universities in areas devastated by Hurricane Katrina, Rutgers President Richard L. McCormick said Wednesday.
Under the program, the students are eligible to take courses at Rutgers and transfer credits back to their home institutions. They would be responsible for in-state tuition and fees, although Rutgers would consider delaying payment in individual cases.
The visiting students would return to their Gulf Coast schools as soon those institutions can be safely reopened.
