Community college takes Katrina-affected students

Harford Community College President James LaCalle has announced plans to assist students from the Gulf Coast area who were affected by Hurricane Katrina and will not be able to attend college this fall.

The college will allow displaced students to register late, as approved on a case-by-case basis, and defer tuition for those who have paid their fees elsewhere. Payment plans will be offered to students unable to pay tuition because of the disaster.

Staff members will work with students to help them obtain federal aid for which they are eligible, and to transfer credits earned at Harford Community College to their home institution or another college of their choosing.
