Westminster Will Accept Displaced College Students
September 3, 2005
SALT LAKE CITY Westminster College has joined several other colleges around the country in offering to accept students from Gulf Coast colleges which have been destroyed by the hurricane.
President Michael Bassis says there are apparently around 100,000 southern college students without schools right now. New Orleans alone has nine colleges.
Bassis says displaced students will be admitted as visiting students and he believes most of their costs will be covered by the federal Department of Education.
Any classes they take at Westminster will be transferable to their original colleges.
