Students affected by Katrina can join any UM school

September 10, 2005

Students displaced by Hurricane Katrina can enroll at any University System of Maryland college free this semester if they have paid tuition at their home universities.

The system's governing Board of Regents voted unanimously yesterday to approve the policy. If displaced students have not paid tuition at their home colleges, Maryland colleges will help the students find financial aid.

More than 160 students affected by Katrina have enrolled throughout the University System of Maryland's 11 campuses, officials said.
