Cal Poly Will Open Its Doors to Hurricane Katrina Students
Cal Poly will be part of the California State University System effort
to help college students affected by Hurricane Katrina.
"We're working really hard to open our doors to as many students as we can and hope that the little bit we can offer, given our current lack of space and resources, will be helpful," said Linda Dalton, executive vice provost and chief planning officer.
All students who are residents of the Katrina-affected areas of Louisiana, Mississippi, or Alabama will be exempt from payment of non-resident tuition at Cal Poly, as spelled out in the just-issued CSU Coded Memorandum on assisting hurricane victims.
Cal Poly's Continuing Education office will also offer "Open University" for qualified students to come to Cal Poly, without matriculating. Students should see page 27 of 2005-07 Cal Poly Catalog for details. Access to courses through Continuing Education is on a space-available basis.
