The University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, announced earlier an emergency admissions policy to assist students who were enrolled at colleges and universities in the affected areas. 

“Students interested in attending UMC may apply up until the last date to add a class, which is September 13,” stated Pam Holsinger-Fuchs, vice chancellor for student affairs and enrollment, “They would need to be admitted and registered by that date.” The same is true for students interested in registering for online classes. UMC’s Center for Adult Learning (CAL) headed by Michelle Christopherson, follows the same admissions policy for their distance students.

Hurricane Katrina has affected the lives of a many college students and UMC is prepared to help those who might be interested in applying and offers in-state tuition to all students. Mary Feller, interim admissions director, said, “Admissions can expedite the application process as quickly as possible if we have all their information in advance.” Applications would be reviewed on a case-by-case basis to determine how to help students in the best possible manner. Students can apply online.
