USF is prepared to make special accommodations to allow undergraduate and graduate students who are impacted by the hurricane to take classes at USF this semester.

"Our goal is to allow students to pursue their college education without interruption until these universities reopen," said Bob Spatig, USF's director of undergraduate admissions. "We'll work with parents and students as much as we can to accommodate their individual needs.

"The university has approved waiving the out-of-state portion of tuition and fees for non-resident students enrolled at USF for Fall 2005 only, providing they furnish evidence of enrollment or intent to enroll in Fall 2005 at an institution of higher education located in the region affected by Hurricane Katrina.

Students interested in inquiring about enrolling for the Fall semester at USF should call our toll-free number at 877-USF-BULLS.
