Boston College Responds to Katrina
UPDATE: Tuesday, September 06, 2005
Boston College is unable to accept additional undegraduate students from Gulf-area
institutions displaced by Hurricane Katrina. We have already exceeded our
target of enrolling up to 100 undergraduate students, and we are unable to accommodate
Space remains for graduate students interested in studying at Boston College.
It is our understanding that the National Association of Independent Colleges
and Universities (NAICU) is in the process of posting a website providing information
on those institutions able to enroll visiting students.
Information for enrolled Emergency Visiting Students
- Emergency Visiting Student Status (EVS)
- Students must already have been admitted under the "Emergency
Visiting Student Status" Program by the College of Advancing Studies.
- EVS students will be enrolled as non-matriculating students for
the Fall 2005 Semester.
- EVS students who have paid tuition at their home institution will
not pay Boston College tuition. However, they will be responsible for
College student fees. Should an EVS student reside on campus, they will
for room and board.
- On-Campus Housing
- Emergency Visiting Students who have been enrolled by
the Woods College of Advancing Studies will be contacted by the Office
Life regarding available EVS on-campus housing.
- Space is limited and
will be granted on an individual basis. Geographical location may be
taken into consideration when granting EVS housing.
Students from the Boston Metro area able to commute from home will
not be eligible
for on-campus housing.
- Emergency Visiting Students will be
housed together in St. Williams Hall, a Boston College residence hall,
joining us for the fall semester.
- Residential Life will not
contact EVS students UNTIL they have been enrolled as an EVS by the
Woods College of Advancing
