UCF Reaches Out:..

UCF to Allow College Students Displaced by Hurricane Katrina to Register for Classes

The University of Central Florida beginning today will allow college students displaced by Hurricane Katrina to register for classes on a space-available basis.

Students who were enrolled this fall at universities that have been closed because of the hurricane may apply to UCF by 5 p.m. Friday, Sept. 9. Students can call 407-823-6188 for enrollment information; a 800 number will be posted at www.ucf.edu later this week. Because UCF started classes Aug. 22, admissions staff will work one-on-one with displaced students to expedite admission, enrollment and financial assistance processes.

Application fees will be waived, and students will pay in-state tuition rates. UCF will provide guidance and tutoring assistance, as well as referrals for housing and other necessities.

Students will be offered admission on a case-by-case basis and will be required to sign a form verifying they were registered elsewhere and have been displaced. Students who are unable to provide transcripts and other official materials immediately will be allowed to do so at a later date to be determined.
