Marquette University to Admit Students |
Displaced by Hurricane Katrina
Aug. 31, 2005
Marquette University has received a number of inquiries this
week from students who had planned to attend universities
in the area affected by Hurricane Katrina this fall and are
looking for alternatives, given the worsening situation in
"We will be welcoming to these students and work with
them to have a productive fall term with the hopes that their
work here will easily transfer to their home institution at
whatever point they can return there" said Anne Deahl,
associate provost for enrollment management.
To that end, Marquette has made the following arrangements:
- Undergraduate admissions will expedite the admissions
process and Marquette will admit these students immediately
with visiting student status for the fall term.
- Plans are in place to provide these students with advising,
class availability and assistance with registration. The
university will make every effort to create a course schedule
that will most easily transfer back to their home institution.
- Students who wish to live on campus will be accommodated.
