(Washington, DC) In the wake of the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina in the Gulf Coast area, many DC area colleges offer a broad array of services to displaced college students so that they may be able to continue their education.
The University of the District of Columbia, for example, offers one semester of tuition and associated student fees free of charge to all District residents who are currently enrolled in a college or university forced into closing as a result of Hurricane Katrina.
“Hurricane Katrina has caused upheaval in many people’s lives on many levels,” said Mayor Anthony A. Williams. “I am gratified that many Washington area colleges and universities – including our own UDC– have responded quickly and generously to provide support for the continuing education of students affected by this disaster.”
