Enrolling in other schools

Let's get the record straight. Everyone's talking about enrolling in schools in their hometowns. To me, this seems to be a viable option, however make sure you don't do something without fully checking it out. Tulane used to be a stickler about grade transfers, and I recommend everyone wait until they can talk to Tulane until we know for sure that this is possible. Assuming they are more leinent about transfer, they still may not like state universities and may only want major universties. It would be very annoying to enroll, pay and then be screwed.

I've talked to a few schools and some are willing to take students as visitor students. You basically aren't enrolled in the school, just visiting from another university (Tulane). Therefore, all your grades and crap just goes right back to Tulane. What does this mean? It means you dont have to apply to the school and get in. you can just start taking classes right away. Sweet.

Now this seems optimal, but I must stress that Tulane might not be down with that concept. They might say, "hey, we want you to come back and go to some weird school like jackson state." That would be terrible!

Post in the comments section about schools you know of that are interested. Also state about whether they have a business school- because a big problem here in California is that there are very few undergraduate business school. Check back for updates later

That's all for now,
Brett

I'm a former Tulane professor now teaching at Georgia State, in Atlanta, and we have been alerted that we will be welcoming enrolled Tulane students as "transient students" at GSU this fall. I have also heard that U Colorado-Boulder may be doing the same thing.

I've heard about University of Houston offering to house students and faculty. One of their law profs is friends with my dad and sent him an email about it. They are offering immediate enrollment, and are trying to figure out a way to take ALL of the tulane community. The contact number for immediate enrollment is

its not that Tulane doesn't like state schools, they just don't accept credit from two year institutions after students have already enrolled in Tulane. So just make sure its a 4 yr institution but be wary that normally youd have to get a signature from each department that approves your course somewhere else is equivalent to a tulane course. keep the faith. im a tulane alumna and a tulane employee and graduate student currently. Scott Cowen is a great leader and I bet you we will be one of the first schools in New Orleans to be up and running.

On John Hopkins University's website, they mention that the Association of American Universities is now talking about what they can do to help the students from Tulane. Check out http://www.aau.edu/aau/members.html for a list of universities. Here's what JHU's website said:

"Tulane University in New Orleans is, like Johns Hopkins, one of about 60 members of the Association of American Universities, a 105-year-old organization comprising the nation's leading research universities.

President Brody and Provost Knapp are working with AAU and senior leaders of other AAU institutions to devise a coordinated effort to come to the assistance of Tulane, its students, faculty and staff.

A number of suggestions are on the table, including allowing Tulane students to take courses at other AAU institutions until they are able to return to their own university.

The first step is to get in touch with the senior leadership of Tulane, and AAU is working on that but has not gotten through to them yet. We want to offer our assistance and find out what we can do.

There have been a lot of ideas from the AAU members, including Johns Hopkins, but details remain to be worked out. We really need to talk to Tulane before anything is finalized.

As of now, the undergraduate admissions office at the Johns Hopkins Homewood campus has heard directly from about 20 Tulane students, some of them from Baltimore and some from elsewhere. We are maintaining a list of everyone who's called and we'll get back to them once we have details we can share with them."

Here is what I think, again, my personal opinion. You can enroll at another school, as many of your parents may make you. BUT, think of it this way. We will be out of Tulane at the MOST 4 months (that’s if we start up again 2nd semester). Four months, in the greater scheme of life, is not an unfathomable amount of time. Think of other options: do community service, get a job, travel, volunteer, train for the Red Cross for when we get back down to NOLA. Even take a class or two. You have the rest of your life to be in the real world, why rush it? So the majority of Tulane gets pushed back and you graduate in December, rather than May. Tulane can make the December grad the “big one”. Or, maybe we can start in mid-October, and take a little time out of the summer. Who knows? The will accommodate the students. Yes, they will probability take your credits (I can’t say for sure). But remember what Tulane means to you. If you transfer, please come back and don’t ever lose your Tulane spirit.

I am a senior and I want to graduate from Tulane for sure. Unlike high school, colleges ARE NOT required to have a certain amount of days that we have to be in class. I just read that entergy can restore electricity in some areas in as little as 2-4 weeks, obvi uptown did better than most of the area, so we are looking at about 6-8 weeks to get back. We easily could be back end of Oct and finish classes in Dec.... During the Vietnam war semesters were shortened.... Wait until you hear from Cowen to do the go-ahead. If Tulane starts up in Oct, what are you going to do if you are already enrolled in classes? Give him until Sunday then make your decision if you must. Have some faith in Tulane and New Orleans.... it's been a home for most of us and I for one and sad to see how it looks now

The thing is, before you make any rash decisions consider this. If you take courses at another university consider what will happen when Tulane re-opens. They will most likely be on some sort of shortend schedule or will have us run into summer. If you take classes else where you won't be able to pick up and leave them and go back to Tulane. You'll either have to stay and hope you get credit, or leave and lose your tuition and credit. My advice would be to just wait and see what the school says. They can't just screw over all of the students of Tulane University.. just a thought...

I am also a senior and I also want to graduate from Tulane. After 3 wonderful years there I can't imagine attending any other university. So, I'm not going to. I'll work and maybe pick up 1 class at a local college (in KY), but I'm not transferring anywhere for good. This is all temporary. Hopefully, Tulane/New Orleans will be ready for us in the spring.

Tulane will probably accept any school you go to so long as it is not a Community College. State schools will be fine, plus they won't have much of an option considering they do not have a facility large enough for us all to take classes in the area. Enroll in classes or get a job, don't lose the whole semester though. And most importantly COME BACK TO TULANE WHEN IT REOPENS!!!

I understand that you underclassmen may not have the attachment that I have for Tulane and New Orleans. I'm a 5th year MFin, which is a 1 year program. And for those in finance, you know how important it is to look for jobs now, and accept one under the agreement that you graduate by May 06. With the hurricane, I'm looking at possibly not applying for jobs until next fall's recruitment session, which means i wouldn't work until atleast Jan 07. Even with all this, I can't turn my back on Tulane. For those considering a transfer, you don't understand what its like to truely miss nola. Wait it out before making a rash decision.

The people of tulane are my family if they like it or not and I will be among the first to come back into the city and clean up the mess and transcend the obstacle that has been laid in our path to overcome.
I will see you in the Spring or earlier. Email me at SerpentBL@aol.com to see if we can coordinate a crew of us to go back in as soon as it's safe.

I'm a Tulane Graduate, class of 2005. I'm now a Graduate Student in Chicago. And I would just like to say, don't transfer. if you need to take a few classes, fine, but don't leave tulane! If I were a senior now, I would not consider transfering. Tulane was the best decision I ever made. If you are worried about graduating in four years, it is more than possible to graduate in 3 1/2 years, assuming you miss the entire semester, without having entered with an insane amount of AP credits or taking a heavy load of summer classes. Scott Cowen, the faculty and staff are extremely dedicated to Tulane and the students that go there. They will get Tulane back on track. So stick it out with them. If you can, volunteer with the red cross or any of the other groups sending people down to help get New Orleans back to where it was. The red cross offers disaster relief training courses that you need to take before they send you down there. check it out on their website at www.redcross.org.

there's a difference between taking classes at another university for a semester and transferring for life. Most of the universities taking students in are doing under the "visiting students" label.

As mentioned in my comments under "Last Post a Bit Confusing".. it would be nice if Tulane Administrators posted a reply here or on emergency.tulane.edu to give students who are taking classes at another university as a visitor, some information on whether the credits would then be accepted back at Tulane. It is my understanding that "transferring" to another school is much more complex. The students would then have to "transfer" all those credits back to Tulane. As a visiting student though, the question would simply be whether Tulane would accept the coursework. All of these universities are responding, but where is a response from Tulane? The admissions office has posted that they've relocated to Richmond so they could continue their recruitment activities, and since they would review transfer applications they may be able to provide some guidelines on transferring credits in this special circumstance. It may be impossible to get a department head approval for this in advance of taking the class.

First of all, people, it's the second, well, third day now, after the hurricane. You have to not only give the city, but the school time to work. Yes, I know they should have had plans in place in case something like this ever happened. The whole area should have, but no one wanted to have them because no one wanted it to happen. They have been dealing with many more issues than just where can students go for classes, like how badly is campus, when is it feaasible for campus to re-open, how do we get these 400 kids who came to Jackson State home safely. The list goes on. Give them at least until the weekend to figure things out.

Second, in all reality, no feasible time lines can even be CONSIDERED until the levees have at least been shored, and the water has been drained. Right now, the water has equilized and is no longer coming into the city. It's even starting to drain out of the 9th Ward and the East. The military is also bringing in a lot of immense pumps to start pumping out the city to not only give the city's pumps a chance to be replaced or given a break, but also to get more water out faster.

Third, and maybe most important, this city and its people are going to need help. There was 100% damage to Kenner, Lakeview, the East, and the 9th Ward are under water, Chalmette might as well be bulldozed, Slidell is not only under water but pretty unreachable, as the Twin Spans collapsed, and Downtown, Mid-city, Getilly, the CBD, and the Warehouse District all took on a lot of water because of the levee breaks. The Westbank (Wank) faared the best with little flooding and damage, but loads of looting. The cop who got shot was shot on the Wank. And that's just what they've said on the news. That's leaving out Uptown, Metairie, and the dozen other parts to the city. All of this makes it apparent that this city will need a helluva lot more than just money to help it start the rebuilding process. So go get Red Cross certified, and go back when you can. If you really care about this city, than show it, and the people who need it most right now, that you do, that it's more than just a place for you to party for nine months. Sure it may make it a little harder to graduate for some, but think people. How many times will you get to help an amazing city like New Orleans come back from the despair and destruction that was caused by "the hurricane of the century?" It needs help and if the people who don't live there, even the temporary residents, don't work their hardest to restore this city to its once reknowned beauty, grace, and, yes, even debauchery, it will never be what it once was and what everyone loves it for.

And, as a last note, coming someone who stayed in Baton Rouge for a few days following Katrina, national coverage of this has sucked hardcore. All they keep showing is the worst hit areas, i.e., Kenner, the East, the 9th Ward, Chalmette, and Slidell. That leaves somewhere around 15 other major parts of the city that everyone's wondering about, like many of the previous stated places. Local coverage was better. Not a lot, but definitely better. If you're not in the area, try going to 2theadvocate.com, wafb.com, wwl.com, and wjbo.com. Some of them were news channels that you can watch online; others were radio stations you could listen to online. And, as of yesterday, WWL was the only one still broadcasting out of New Orleans itself.

P.S. If you didn't know where any of those places are that were listed like the East, the 9th Ward, CBD, etc. grab a map. It'll help you know where they're talking about and help you know the city better in the long run.

Hey guys. I'd really love to get in there, roll up my sleeves and help, but as of right now it's too dangerous and unreachable. I think that it's still important to do what we can, whether you're taking classes or not. I'm going to be in LA in a week or week and a half, and I want to organize a letter-writing party while I'm out there. I hope that if it goes well I can get key people in other major cities to set up the same thing. So here's the plan:

By the end of today I will have finished a letter that any Tulane student could sign and send to friends and family. In LA we'll invite all the TU kids we know there or all that we can get together to come to a house, bring $5-$10 and 50 addresses, and get underway. The money will cover materials and a keg (or some alcohol, I mean, we're still tulane students after all!), and everyone will be provided with envelopes to address, letters to sign and an envelope addressed to American Red Cross at a PO Box in Florida by my house.

I met with the guy from my local red cross and checks would be made out to red cross but collected by me in FL. My mom has volunteered to do that part as well as keep the bookkeeping.

one last thing is we need a name - TU Students for Katrina relief or whatever, but im not creative and i need something catchy!

let me know if you're interested in getting this started in your city and ill get you all the information and directions on how to go about it all! You can text message me or try to call (hopefully my phone will work soon!) or email me.

like I stated before, if Tulane gives the AAU the ok to accept its students for a semester or year, then there will be 62 different univeristies for students to choose from, all of which are research universities that will offer everything that Tulane does (aside from the actual atmosphere and vibe of being at Tulane).

But I agree completely that we should wait until Cowen gives us some information... obviously he has hopes of a fall semester as he had hinted to in the last post, and he may even be aware of what other universities are looking to do.. but by restating that Tulane's students are loyal, I think he's hoping we'll wait.

Donating to the Red Cross or enrolling in training classes is a great idea.

Tulane cannot expect every student to enroll elsewhere this semester and WILL have some way to account for the lost time.

My dad is a retired professor of the University of Pittsburgh and the Indiana University of Pennsylvania and reminded me that having a semester in 7 weeks is a very real possibility.

I spoke to an admissions person at Texas Southern University and her response to financial aid was, "well, they'll reconsider it for our costs.... and then i'm sure it'll just roll back to Tulane" Her uncertainty on the issue was really assuring.

Bottom line: I'll wait for Tulane to give the ok. Do something pro-active for the city and get invovled with donations and volunteering. But make sure whatever you end up doing will be something you are happy with. Honestly, who wants to go to class yet?

BE CAREFUL!!! I am waiting to see what Tulane says first about classes, then making a decision. However, I did call some schools to see what the deal was. Almost every school I called said that it would be between $1200-$3100 A CLASS, they also said that they were going to figure tuition (since Tulane was already paid). It seems that most schools are making you pay... at least in the Boston area (if anyone knows of some that arent let me know). Just be careful, Im sure your parents do NOT want to pay for 2 colleges. Also remeber, if you do go to another school, Tulane opens, you are stuck paying the school you are at now, and going to waste money if you go back to Tulane (and have to pay), and if you do not go back for the semester, you get the crap end of Registration.....

Hey guys,

I'm a freshmen from Kansas and enrolled in KU in Lawrence yesterday. I AM GOING BACK TO TULANE...when it reopens. However, even if the campus can be fixed up in the next few weeks, the city can't. The airport is underwater. There was a national announcement somewhere a while back (I think CNN) that it would be 12-16 weeks before you could even get back into New orleans - the length of a semester. I pray that it doesn't take as long, but in the meantime i'm going to school, getting credits (almost the exact same ones I would have gotten this semester anyway). If Your in the Kansas area, KU is being very accomidating...the chancellor has been nothing but exceptional and I encourage you all to check it out. Till we can get back...Go Greenwave...

Guys,

It's great everyone is rallying behind tulane, but you have to concede that this semester is probably not going to happen. Even if they have the campus fixed up by Late October, by the time they get all the professors back in town, get new supplies like food, books, etc.... they just won't be able to do it. If you want to take classes this semester, there are plenty of options and you can always come back to Tulane when they're ready. Considering how uncertain things are though, you might not want to just put your life on hold waiting for this tragedy to play itself out. Soon you won't have the option to spend this semester elsewhere, most schools have already started

Think about how great it would look to employers that Tulane students (esp seniors) did not give up the second a bad thing happened.

Dont turn our backs on a city the second something bad happens by freaking out and already tranfsering.... help out, get an internship, DONATE, the world is not just about you.... Also why rush into the real world? you have 40 + years to be a part of that world, enjoy the time now, you are only in college once... travel, internship, whatever, live life

I’m wondering why there are mutinous discussions being held without regard for the university’s plans.

I, like Lauren am not going anywhere either, only to where I'm needed. Some friends of mine and I have been getting together and we want to do something to help. This is a time when the Tulane and larger New Orleans community needs to pull together and help out our beautiful city. When the flood waters go back, we need rebuilding and redevelopment for NOLA. I proposed starting NOLAid, an organization for relief, rebuilding, and redevelopment of New Orleans. I may sound desperate, but if we get this off the ground, we can get our city back and better than ever. I need people who want to help, let's get pledge drives, I'm thinking about making bracelets, making Popeye's donate their proceeds, Bourbon drink specials at bars everywhere, whatever, let's get something going to help out. email me at bob.ohara@gmail.com and let me know what your ideas are.

Reading all of these comments in support of our city is so heartwarming and I know is helping me through this stressful time. I really hope that these calls for relief efforts and support amount to something because that's a great legacy that our current student body could leave to the city.

On the more unfortunate note, Northwestern University will be accepting students into the Continuing Education program. I'm assuming you could take a few classes and it would be like a transient student deal. I'm not sure on the details yet.

Let's pray I don't need to know anyway!

I would try calling any members of the Association of American Universities, which Tulane is a part of. The heads of the association are meeting to try and decide what to do about helping Tulane students out. They’re still waiting for a heads up from Tulane before they go ahead.
http://www.aau.edu/aau/members.html <--u can find a list of members there

However, I would wait and see what Scott Cowen does. He said he’s announcing the plan for Tulane students in 72 hours. If you need to, see if you can transfer for the semester..just don’t pay for the college yet if possible since we might actually have a semester…just at a different location. Another thing you could do is call ur newspaper/media and tell them about your situation…perhaps if we can get media attention we can put pressure on colleges to let students in for the semester. I know in California that Pepperdine and UC Santa Cruz are the only colleges that are letting students from Tulane in and that’s screwing up a lotta things for us, considering Pepperdine costs about $20,000 a semester). Rice is offering a tution waiver for Houston residents as long as we pay Tulane, which is amazing. Texas schools are going out of the way to help Texans, and personally I feel California colleges can step up a bit. I just would like to have some Plan B available. I don’t know how it is for you in your state. I think if we get media coverage of it…it would make colleges want to look good. Anyways…I’m going back to Tulane for sure after all this is over. There is no place like Tulane….its home.

I posted this blog under another section, but this one seems to be the most popular, so I apoligize for the repeat, but, for anyone in the DC/Baltimore area: I have been in contact with some Tulane alums, and we are going to try to have a fundraising event at the Funk Box (soon to be the 8 by 10 club) in Baltimore, sometime in the next few weeks. Contact me at llipuma327@yahoo.com if anyone would like to help or attend. Roll wave!

I'm a student at the University of North Texas. I don't know what kind of accomodations we are or aren't providing for Tulane students, but I know that today our Athletics Director and various football players and other student athletes have been standing out in the hot Texas sun collecting donations for hurricane victims. Also, on Saturday the football team is having an open practice and meeting fans who bring non-perishable donations (food and water) for hurricane victims. Ya'll are definitely on our minds.

Like much of the nation, the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater community is concerned about those people whose lives have been changed by the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina. In an effort to help students displaced by these unfortunate events, UW-Whitewater is prepared to expedite enrollment for any qualified student from a college and university closed by Hurricane Katrina. We have already begun working with some students from the Milwaukee area that would have been at Tulane this semester. We would encourage any students who wish to continue their studies to contact UW-Whitewater’s Director of Admission Stephen McKellips or any admissions staff member at 262-472-1440. UW-Whitewater will allow flexibility in tuition and fee payment arrangements pending clarification of students’ status at their home universities. UW-Whitewater will also waive the application fees. Arrangements can be made to transfer credits to their home universities when they return. Housing is available both on and off campus and UW-Whitewater administrators are prepared to do whatever is necessary to help these displaced students continue their education. Our classes do not begin until Tuesday but our students, faculty and staff are already working on ideas to contribute to the relief efforts.

Winthrop University is a partner with the City of Rock Hill in a county-wide effort called "Hometown Cares: Hurricane Katrina Relief." We are coordinating many relief efforts and encouraging all community groups to raise funds that will allow professional relief agencies to purchase exactly what disaster victims most urgently need. We are encouraging student groups to contribute funds raised to the Red Cross, earmarked for Katrina relief.
I know this will be a long lasting recovery effort. When our fellow institutions start to come back on-line, I am requesting that my SSAO colleagues at these institutions contact me directly so I may better be able to focus direct aid to you. I have not been able to reach anyone to date.

Our Community Service Office has started the "Beads for Needs" campaign. For a minimum $1 donation, we will give the donor a set of Mardi Gras beads as a reminder both of the joy New Orleans has brought us in the past and a call to action for a sustained effort for the relief of all the people of Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi

Our prayers are with you.

First, my thoughts and prayers to those communities and colleges in the path or aftermath of Katrina.
Second, as a young professional the community where my college was located experienced a major flooding disaster. (Of course, it was minor in comparison to the current situation on the gulf coast.) However, it provided me with insights and skills to help address and cope with emergencies throughout my career. Many of us have such experience and/or expertise, and I was thinking about some ways to share it.

Thus, this morning, I called Kevin Kruger at NASPA headquarters to discuss an idea. Although he was concerned that the ones who may benefit most--those within the affected areas--may not be able to access this type of information, he suggested I share it here for wider consumption, reflection and potential dissemination.

Specifically, I am able to volunteer to assist with the massive effort. Many other readers of this site may be as well. Whether retired or otherwise available, if you have interest, time, capacity to offer direct support to our colleagues at colleges and universities in the affected area, please consider noting that on this site or contact me directly at: vvalerio@cox.net or 402-691-0953

We would share that information with NASPA and any other agency thought appropriate. Perhaps our collective ideas and resultant efforts may benefit our colleagues and the students and communities they serve.

Our institution has a residence hall that would hold approximately 100 freshmen/sophomore students affected by the hurricane. We would provide the hall to them for free. We would also work with the local community for support of food and clothing. We would offer an alternative to allow them complete their core and other courses that would transfer at an in-state rate and we may be able to find support for the tuition as well.
Can anyone get this information to the UNO, Tulane, or Community College students who may be affected?

Concordia University Wisconsin wishes to join our colleagues in support of those affected by Katrina. The following was sent to the Concordia Community by our President after considerable discussion in our executive council meeting yesterday.
Dear Members of the Concordia community –

The catastrophic consequences of Hurricane Katrina have touched the Concordia University Wisconsin community. Many of our faculty, staff, and students at our New Orleans center are in great need. The rest of our Concordia community is encouraged to come to their aid with financial support.


How can you help? Various ways are listed below:


Checks can be made out to the Concordia University Wisconsin Foundation (note in the memo line “Hurricane Katrina Relief Fund”). These can be dropped off in the Advancement, Business, or President’s offices. Envelopes, in which to place your gift, will be available through those same offices (as well as being sent to the other CUW Centers). Door offerings will be taken Tuesday through Friday next week after chapel. Loose change can be deposited in containers also located in the Business office. The LCMS is also responding to this catastrophe as well. If you prefer, donations may also be given through Lutheran World Relief/Human Care. http://www.lcms.org/

As we have been provided “One Blessing after Another,” may God use our gifts to also be a blessing to one another.

I can't begin to tell you how painful this is for us to watch and only marginally share in the pain our colleagues and their families are going through. Perhaps it's because we had three hurricanes last year. Now that seems almost trivial and petty by comparison.
Each of our campuses also has students from these areas on our campus who have needs, so the implications are truely national. Driving to work this morning and seeing 70 % of the gas stations closed because of perceived and real gas shortages and the panic out there has also brought this closer to home.

As a college at the crossroads of three hurricanes last year, I can't begin to tell you how much the thoughts and prayers of my NASPA colleagues meant to me and to our staff.

I was wondering- the red cross is only taking cash and blood for the hurricane relief- for those of us in housing- we can pull together donations of clothing and other stuff that college students would need- our students don't really have cash- and you can only give blood once in a 8 week period. They want to help! Could we get a listing of those schools affected and put together some type of adopt a school program where I, at texas tech can tend all our donations to? I am willing to work on this- who can I get that info from??

I work for the Texas A&M University System. This just appeared in my emailbox: Two long statements from Robert Gates, President of Texas A&M University, and other information appear below:

1. Texas A&M President Robert M. Gates issued the following announcement Thursday regarding the university’s efforts to assist students — here and at colleges and universities directly affected by Hurricane Katrina — and their families:

We are announcing today (see statement below) that Texas A&M, including the Galveston campus, will accept up to 1,000 students for as long as one year from universities and colleges unable to offer classes this fall due to Hurricane Katrina. This is a significantly higher number of students than any other university has offered to take in (as far as we are aware), but entirely in keeping with our culture, our traditions and our Spirit. We also have offered to provide – to the extent we can -- a temporary home for faculty to continue their research while their own campuses are unavailable. We are, again as far as we know, the only university to extend the offer of assistance to all colleges and universities affected by the tragedy. The statement includes a number of other actions we have taken and are taking. I am confident that other initiatives, likely thought up by students, faculty and/or staff, will be forthcoming.

I know that the Aggie family will respond with warmth, sympathy and support to those displaced by this disaster. A significant number of students from the affected states would clearly have an impact on class sizes and more, but I am confident that faculty and students will make the best of the situation in order to help our neighbors.

Also, I request that all faculty and staff be especially sensitive to the feelings and emotional state of students who are directly affected by this tragedy—certainly including those who have lost family members or else do not know the fate of some of them, in addition to having significant property losses in some cases.

Significant help to friends and neighbors in trouble is what Aggies do best.

Robert M. Gates


Statement by President Gates:

The hearts of the entire Texas A&M University community go out to all victims of Hurricane Katrina. Service to others is a core value of this University, and we feel a special obligation to do all we can to help college students and faculty in the affected area continue uninterrupted with their education and their work. I have formed a special university task force, which will continuously update our ability to assist in this very difficult period. Our current activities are summarized below.


ACADEMICS


· Texas A&M will welcome up to 1,000 students for as long as one year from all four-year colleges and universities unable to offer classes this fall because of the hurricane, including schools such as Tulane, Dillard, Southern, Xavier, Loyola and the University of New Orleans. These students will be charged the minimum tuition allowed by state law.


· Students from impacted universities who are interested in attending Texas A&M this fall should contact Ms. Mary Jane Baldwin in the Office of Admissions and Records at (979) 845-1064 or by e-mail at maryjane@tamu.edu .


· Texas A&M will make available for students from impacted schools approximately 140 campus housing assignments and provide assistance in arranging off-campus housing as needed.


· Texas A&M will make available classroom and laboratory space after hours to institutions that want temporarily to re-locate their programs here. We also are prepared, with available facilities, to host faculty from these universities wishing to continue their research for the next few months.


FINANCIAL AID


· Texas A&M has set aside $200,000 to provide students resources for immediate needs while arrangements are being made for longer-term financial assistance.


· We also will provide assistance to Texas A&M students whose homes are in the ravaged areas and whose families have been forced to migrate to the local area and are now in need of housing and other daily necessities.


· Student Body President Jim Carlson is urging Texas A&M faculty, staff and students and other members of the local community to donate canned goods and clothing during the Memorial Student Center (MSC) Open House MSC on Sunday, September 4 from 1-6 p.m. Additional student-led activities will be announced subsequently.


OUTREACH

· We will open Cain Hall as a resource center to Hurricane Katrina evacuees for a variety of needed services, including Internet access as a means for contacting family members and friends who remain in the disaster area or who may have evacuated elsewhere.


· The Association of Former Students will provide a toll-free call center for providing information about university resources. The toll-free number is (888) 440-7345.


· University police are assisting in providing security for evacuees at designated shelters in the community.


· The College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences is sheltering animals displaced by the hurricane and subsequent flooding.


· We can all take pride in the work of one of our sister agencies based here on campus. Texas Task Force One, operated by the Texas Engineering Extension Service, has 126 personnel providing search and rescue service in Louisiana.


2. System Offers Admission To Students Affected by Hurricane Katrina


Robert D. McTeer, chancellor of The Texas A&M University System, today announced that all nine universities and health science center in the A&M System would be able to accommodate several thousand students currently enrolled in universities and colleges in the region affected by Hurricane Katrina. “We will do what we can to help these students whose educations have been so tragically interrupted,” McTeer said. McTeer said the fall admissions process would be extended for students meeting admissions requirements and that some on-campus housing would be available. More


3. Donations Being Collected Sunday For Hurricane Victims


Texas A&M faculty, staff and students and the College Station/Bryan community may donate items to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina during the MSC Open House. Items such as non-perishable food, clothing, and toiletries may be dropped off outside G. Rollie White Coliseum at the corner of Houston St. and Joe Routt between 1 and 6 p.m. on Sunday (Sept. 4). All those who contribute will receive a ticket for a drawing to win one of many prizes donated by local businesses. Contact Nirma D. Bustamante, hurricane relief coordinator, at Amrin022@neo.tamu.edu or 915-726-0666 or the chair of MSC CAMAC, Becky Covarrubias at Beckyc123@aol.com or (979) 739-1515 for more information.


4. Counseling Available To Students From Areas Affected By Katrina

Texas A&M’s Student Counseling Service (SCS) has counselors available to students from Louisiana, Mississippi, or Alabama who may need help dealing with feelings, thoughts, and worries in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Students may drop in and see a counselor from 10 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday at the SCS offices in Henderson Hall. Help is also available by calling the Helpline at 845-4427 or 845-2700. Must be currently enrolled student at Texas A&M.



5. APO Sponsors Blood Drive To Aid Hurricane Victims Next Week


Carter BloodCare will be on campus next week for a blood drive sponsored by Alpha Phi Omega. Collection will be Monday through Friday (Sept. 5 – 9) at Rudder Fountain, SBISA and BioBio. Community blood supplies in the areas affected by Hurricane Katrina are expected to decline rapidly due to the inability to collect and process blood donations. At this time, Carter BloodCare has been asked by The Blood Center in New Orleans and Mississippi Blood Services to provide support and thanks to a strong community supply locally, a shipment of blood units has already been sent to Jackson. early this morning. Blood donors are encouraged to visit any Carter BloodCare donor center or the blood drives on the Texas A&M campus For more information call Katie Olson at 254-855-7244 or the APO blood drive chairs Lauren Freeman sparklz125@yahoo.com and Leanna Alexander laynie07@neo.tamu.edu.


6. TAMUG Helps Out in Hurricane Relief Efforts


Relief efforts for Hurricane Katrina victims have been underway at Texas A&M University at Galveston (TAMUG) for several days. The school admitted four students Thursday from the New Orleans area. They had previously attended Nichols State University but the hurricane forced them to change their plans. Also, TAMUG faculty, staff and students have volunteered considerable amounts of time to work in the Galveston shelter set up for refugees, and that site is now at full capacity. TAMUG faculty, staff and students have also raised donations for the hurricane relief effort .

Basically you can take any class that relates to your major or minor or any elective. you have to pay $80 for registration and then you just pay for each class you are enrolled in (about $150-175 each class). all you have to do is download a form from www.unex.ucsb.edu/us/ and bring it the first day of classes.

The good thing is you can be an out of state student and pay the same price and you would get credit and a transcript to bring back to Tulane. ALSO the first week that classes start is Sept. 19 so that give PLENTY of time to see what else is out there.

I am definately going back to Tulane as soon as it reopens and can't wait to see everyone. However, this could be a good option in the meantime to pick up a few credits.

The number for the program is (805) 893-4200

The Richard Stockton Collage of New Jersey (www2.stockton.edu) is willing to consider processing applications from hurricane displaced students.

If you're interested in a quick transfer call Alison Henry at (609) 652 4831. If you reach voicemail identify yourself as a Tulane student and leave information on how you can be reached (by phone or eMail). She will get back to you.

At the same time, eMail admissions dean Sal Catalfamo at scatalfamo@stockton.edu and ID yourself as a Tulane student in the subject line of your message (he gets lots of eMails a day). You need to leave the following information:
1) your name
2) year
3) GPA
4) if you can get a transcript (unofficial is acceptable)

Stockton College is willing to consider emergency applications on a case-by-case basis.

I transferred there myself from Tulane in the middle of last year for personal reasons, and it is a great and helpful community who is there for you, and really wants to help.

American University in Washington, D.C. I heard that a TU junior and sophomore were admitted there for the semester and that reps were really open to trying to help TU students.

Academically and in terms of stats, I think its about on par with Tulane and a similar campus setup (i.e. tranquil beautiful campus in the bustling big city). I go there for grad school and it reminds me of Tulane all the time. Might be worth looking in to.

I am a resident manager at Loyola University Chicago and I'm just posting to let you know that we are trying to help. Residence Life just had an emergency meeting letting us know that we are admitting about 100 students from Tulane and Loyola New Orleans, 57 of whom will be able to live on campus. The university has also set up an account to provide those students with basic necessities, and the main concern is not financial at this point, but rather to get you guys into classes. Many efforts are being driven towards your needs - we take care of our sister schools!

Chi-town is thinking of you all.

Letter Tulane sent out the alternate student email addresses...


All of us at Tulane University continue to struggle with the aftermath of Katrina. We know that you have many questions about what will happen over the next few weeks. We are developing plans that will address all of these concerns.

In the interim, however, we know that many of you are anxious to begin your collegiate studies as soon as possible. In order to achieve this, you may decide to begin your college career at another institution and then transfer to Tulane University in a subsequent term.

In recognition of this, I am writing to provide some guidance regarding the courses you may want to take to ensure that they are fully transferable to Tulane University. In order to be fully transferable, you must take these courses at a regionally accredited college or university, achieve a grade of "C" or higher and complete courses that are equivalent to those offered at Tulane University.

If you decide to enroll for the fall term at another institution, I suggest that you build your program from among the following list of courses that are available at many baccalaureate level institutions. These courses are fully transferable into all programs of study at Tulane University.


African History
American Government
American History
Anthropology
Art History
Asian History
Calculus
Ceramics
Chemistry with laboratory
Classics
Comparative Government
Cultural Anthropology
Drawing
Economics, micro or macro
Ethics
European History
Foreign Language (4 credit courses) - French, Italian, Spanish, German, Russian, Portuguese, Greek, Latin
Freshman Writing

Logic
Painting
Philosophy
Physical Geology with laboratory

The following announcement was released September 1 by Dr. John Hitt, President of UCF:

Beginning today, the University of Central Florida 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 1-800 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 that 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. --Jim Wright, former faculty member (sociology) at Tulane.

In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, which tore apart cities along the Gulf Coast and has left New Orleans virtually uninhabitable, Yale and several other American universities will allow students from New Orleans colleges to take classes on a temporary basis until their own campuses reopen.

The damage to New Orleans' infrastructure is massive, and Louisiana officials predict that the city may be closed for months, making it practically impossible for colleges in the city, such as Tulane University, Loyola University New Orleans, Xavier University of Louisiana and Dillard University, to conduct a fall semester. Early reports estimate that about 80,000 college students in the area may be affected.

Yale President Richard Levin said late Thursday that the University will open its gates for students enrolled in affected colleges to take classes at Yale. The decision was made in concert with the Association of American Universities, which represents 62 major research universities, including Tulane.

"This would be a complete exception to our normal policy," Levin said. "This would be a major national tragedy. We'd like to come up with some sensible scheme nationwide to give students a place to study this year."

Yale officials had not worked out the details of the plan as of last night. It is unknown how many New Orleans students would be allowed to enroll in classes, whether they would be housed on campus and how long they would be permitted to stay. It also was unclear how students would be selected and when they would arrive.

What is clear is that any New Orleans students who come to Yale would not be degree candidates at the University, but rather would earn credits that they could transfer to their own colleges once they reopen, Levin said.

AAU spokesman Barry Toiv said the association received offers similar to Yale's from several other member colleges. Universities' offers have varied, Toiv said, as some schools said they could provide housing and others could not. Some public universities, including the University of Virginia, offered temporary admission specifically for residents of their states.

"The higher education community really wants to step up to the plate here, and I think they'll do that," Toiv said.

The American Council on Education also is working with universities in the Gulf Coast to help coordinate relief efforts and help students who are displaced, the council's president, David Ward, said in a statement released Wednesday.

"Despite the scope of this challenge, I know that the creative energy of more than 3,000 U.S. colleges and universities will soon be brought to bear to help our Gulf Coast institutions rebuild and renew themselves for the challenges ahead," Ward said.

Several universities -- Columbia University, the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Virginia and the State University of New York, among others -- yesterday offered to enroll students from New Orleans colleges for the semester.

Yale is working with the AAU to develop a nationwide mechanism to most efficiently accommodate as many students as possible from the New Orleans colleges.

"Our preference is to have some kind of scheme to coordinate what students are assigned to what university," Levin said.

The Yale admissions office has already received calls from several students and their families asking about enrolling at the University, Levin said. Yale College Dean Peter Salovey said the administration wants to avoid a "first come, first serve" selection system.

"We can sympathize with the goal of allowing students who are facing incredible disruption in their lives to at least continue their educations without a major interruption," Salovey said.

Relief efforts at Yale are not only coming from the administration. Stephanie Speirs '07 said she is launching an effort to raise money for the Red Cross relief effort in the Gulf Coast region.

"I want to, for the next week, be outside every residential dining hall and Commons, and even a table on Cross Campus, to collect money," she said.

Speirs, a staff reporter and photographer for the News, said she launched her plan when she realized that no one had stepped forward to coordinate fund raising for the disaster on campus.

"Also, my aunt's in Texas, which could have easily been affected if the winds had changed," she said. "It could easily have happened anywhere."

Universities in New Orleans have not yet finalized their plans for the next semester, but it has become increasingly clear that the flooded city will not be habitable for many weeks at least.

Following the storm, Tulane, which has a main campus in uptown New Orleans and a medical campus downtown, has faced communication problems due to the city's power outages. The university's administration yesterday set up a command center in Houston, Texas, where President Scott Cowen and top officials expect to announce plans for the fall semester by Saturday. Tulane's Web server is damaged, and the school is running an emergency Web log with frequent updates from Cowen.

Immediately following the storm, officials were hoping for the best. In a post Wednesday, Cowen wrote that he was still considering a start date for the fall semester. His latest message, posted yesterday at 4 p.m., said the campus fared comparatively well during the storm.

"There are many downed trees, some buildings sustained water damage, and some roofing tiles were damaged," Cowen wrote. "The necessary repairs are manageable. The dorms are intact and students' belongings are safe."

The hurricane struck amid Tulane's freshman orientation program, and many first-year students were evacuated to Jackson State University in Jackson, Miss., last Friday and Saturday after it appeared the storm would hit New Orleans. A JSU news release said the movement of 400 Tulane students to their campus was based on a pre-existing agreement between the schools. After the hurricane, Tulane encouraged students to return home and bused many of them from Jackson to Dallas and Atlanta, to be closer to major airports. Students were housed at Southern Methodist University in Dallas and at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta.

"They put out a call to several universities, and we just answered the call," Georgia Tech spokesman David Terraso said. "We only had about 12 hours' notice from when we found out they were coming to when they arrived."

Most of the students have already left Georgia Tech to go home, Terraso said. But some international graduate students, who could not make plans to go home on such short notice, are still being housed in an apartment complex near Georgia Tech. Terraso said most of those students are waiting to book tickets home from Atlanta until Tulane announces a reopening date. Some students at the Tulane School of Public Health are making arrangements to continue the next semester at Emory University, also in Atlanta, he said.

Terraso said it was not a special relationship between universities that prompted Georgia Tech to offer to house the Tulane students, but rather a natural reaction to the disaster.

"While the students were here, and even right now, we've been getting lots of offers from individuals and companies offering to house students," he said. "Based on the outpouring of offers we've gotten, I have to think it's kind of a universal reaction."

All students whose academic studies are on hold following the Hurricane Katrina disaster are invited to spend the semester or academic year in Israel NOW.

The Jewish Agency and MASA- the Gateway to Israel Programs partnership between the Jewish Agency and the Government of Israel- have created a special coalition of Israeli Universities and Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life, to enable these students to immediately continue their studies.

Five major Israeli universities have accelerated and simplified their acceptance procedures for all students in need. All Jewish students accepted into these Overseas Studies Programs are eligible for MASA scholarships. MASA is working on arranging a special grant to cover plane fare to Israel and partial tuition costs. A special immediate Hebrew Ulpan at the universities will be created, with the help of MASA. We expect credits to be transferable.

All interested students should contact Rachel Brown, Israel Programs Coordinator at 212-339-6903 or e-mail at: rachelbr@jazo.org.il and/or masainfo@masaisrael.org

*Just as a note, since it wasn't publicized: over the summer Tulane changed their policy to now allowing credit from Israel (along with signing a waiver for that's not accessible because the Center for International Studies site is down with the rest of Tulane's site)

The University of Virginia has opened its doors to any Virginia resident to enroll as a non-degree student, but the window to do so is closing fast -- contact the Undergraduate Admissions Office ASAP.

Graduate Students -- UVA has no official policy for admiting you but IS taking inquiries on a case by case basis. That includes the Graduate Business School.

The President's Letter stipulating that schools who open their doors to Tulane students must charge them Tulane's Tuition and remit that to Tulane is, IMHO, neither reasonable, nor fair, nor likely to generate anything more than ILL will -- from affected students, their parents, and the Universities that have opened their doors graciously.

I'd add that, Tulane is a great school, with an absolutely dismal administration, from Accounts Receivable to Financial Aid to good old communication.

"

Since most schools have already started class, this seems like an interesting option. tulane professors should be offering online classes. please let me know, as this could be a good option for many of us that are deciding not to transfer for a semester. thanks!
