Oregon State University leaders have implemented measures to ease enrollment burdens for students whose plans for college have been disrupted by recent hurricanes in Texas, Florida, the East Coast and the Caribbean.
Enrollment services advocates are ready to provide personal assistance on admission and other enrollment procedures. Fall quarter starts Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2017. However, deadlines and many late fees will be waived to accommodate late arrivals from the impacted regions. Registration for classes will be extended into week two of the term.
“We recognize that there are circumstances like hurricanes, and wildfires, that are out of our students’ control but which directly impact their ability to succeed at the university,” said Oregon State President Edward J. Ray. “In 2005 we put many measures in place to ease that impact on students affected by Hurricane Katrina, and this year we’re hoping to help those dealing with Harvey and Irma. Student safety and wellbeing has to take priority.”
Impacted students can also receive assistance when struggling with housing issues both on and off campus through University Housing and Dining. Students affected by the hurricanes can begin the enrollment process and learn more about attending OSU by contacting Enrollment Services.
