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 additional students.

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 all Boston College student fees. Should an EVS student reside on campus, they will be responsible 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 of Residential 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, established to accommodate EVS students 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 Studies.
    • Questions regarding on-campus EVS housing should be directed to Mrs. Susan Burton in the office of Residential Life at 617-552-3060.
