Baylor University is working with upper-level undergraduate students who have been displaced from their institutions because of the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina so they can continue their education.

To date, six students from New Orleans-area universities have been placed at Baylor for the fall semester. The university will continue to accommodate students under these conditions through Sept. 7, with the approval of faculty members teaching the courses in which they seek to enroll.

Displaced students from institutions impacted by the hurricane who enroll at the university are not being required to pay Baylor tuition if they have financially settled at the affected college or university. The university is also assisting these students in locating temporary housing.

Because of a record freshman class, Baylor is unable to accommodate first-year students at this time. Graduate-level students seeking temporary enrollment at Baylor will be accommodated on a case-by-case basis.
