What does this mean for you?
Though recovery efforts seem more promising every day, we realize that this event may have caused you to reconsider your educational priority at this time. We understand and want to help. So, if you have been significantly impacted by Hurricane Ida and believe that you will be unable to successfully complete your Fall 2021 coursework, please complete the Disaster Impact Form by October 1, 2021. Completion of this form will allow us to determine your eligibility for a full or partial tuition expense adjustment and make authorized adjustments in your student account for you.
Please know that supports are in place to help you succeed. If you would like to move forward in your educational journey. Please reach out to your instructor or Student Services for more assistance.
