    I am the Help Desk Coordinator at Webster University in St. Louis, MO.
    Our President issued a statement today which I have pasted below. In short it says we will accept students late in the term and help students that have been displaced by the hurricaine in any way we can.

    Statement from Webster University President Dr. Richard Meyers
    " We are willing to accept late transcripts, waive application fees, and allow students a late start into the classroom given this catastrophic event. If you know of any students seeking to continue their education this semester and are inquiring about the possibilities of attending Webster, please feel free to have them contact the appropriate admission office......The Webster University home campus in St. Louis is currently providing emergency enrollment assistance to students from hurricane affected Gulf Coast colleges and universities allowing them to continue their undergraduate or graduate studies without interruption. The University stands ready to assist in the transfer of
    international students with F1 and J1 visas. Housing options are
    available. Admission fees will be waived and late transcripts and
    faxed documents will be accommodated. Academic advisors are standing by to facilitate a late enrollment and faculty are prepared to help students catch up on class assignments. For further information contact 1-800-75ENROLL; request@webster.edu; www.webster.edu."

    Please add:

    Clarkson University reaches out to victims of Hurricane Katrina and
    our community extends its deepest sympathies to those who have lost
    loved ones in this disaster.

    Clarkson will extend enrollment for up to 20 students affected by
    Hurricane Katrina who can be academically successful in our programs
    in business, engineering, the arts & sciences, and health sciences.
    We will expedite admission and if the student has already paid their
    fall semester tuition to one of the institutions in the hurricane
    region, there will not be any additional out-of-pocket expense.
    Please call our Office of Transfer Admission at 1-800-527-6577 for
    information.

    ASU opens doors to Gulf Coast college students affected by Hurricane Katrina

    This fall semester, ASU is accepting college students who’ve been shut out of Gulf Coast universities by Hurricane Katrina.

    Those students will have access to individual courses, as well as full academic programs.

    ASU President Michael Crow has asked his staff to do everything possible to accommodate the affected students and “walk them through” the enrollment process, including admissions, advising and registration.

    “We have an unprecedented opportunity to reach out to those whose lives have been devastated by Hurricane Katrina,” Crow says. “We can give students whose lives have been thrown into turmoil a place to live and the opportunity to continue their education. I have asked the entire ASU community to make them welcome and to assist them in every way possible.”

    Staff members will be available to provide personal assistance in other offices, too, including Student Financial Assistance, Residential Life, Parking and Transit, the ASU Bookstore, and Counseling and Consultation, among others.

    To ensure that these students receive complete, accurate information – and to ensure that they move through the enrollment process and join their classes as quickly as possible – the students and/or their parents should contact the University Registrar’s Office at (480) 965-7302.

    Cornell told me that they were not accepting students...and now they are? Please make sure it is not for the spring semester, which is what they told me. Thanks.
