Hurricane Katrina Displaced Student Policy

Robert Morris University has agreed to enroll students who were enrolled at any of the colleges and universities that closed in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Beginning the week of September 5th, the University is prepared to admit up to 20 undergraduate and 20 graduate students for the Fall 2005 semester.

Following are the guidelines for the program:

  1. Students will be admitted on a visiting or provisional basis, so that they remain students of their home institution.
  2. RMU will not charge tuition if the student has already paid tuition to his/her home institution. If the student has not paid the home institution, RMU will charge the home institution's rate of tuition and remit that amount to the home institution.

Students should contact Linda A. Berardi-Demo, Dean of Enrollment Services to initiate the enrollment process.
