PCC Joins Colleges in Offering Assistance to Student Victims of Hurricane Katrina
Process for Hurricane Katrina Victims
family extends our heartfelt sympathy to everyone who has been affected by Hurricane Katrina. We will continue to keep all of the families in our thoughts and prayers. In an effort to assist college students who have been displaced by the disaster, PCC has reopened admission and registration for full-term fall 2005 classes. We will consider each application on a case-by case basis and assist students with arrangements for costs of tuition and fees. Pueblo Community College
Eligible students interested in applying for fall 2005 enrollment should contact Jane Batty at 1-888-642-6017 or (719) 549-3015 (Jane.Batty@pueblocc.edu) or Maija Kurtz, (719) 549-3085 (Maija.Kurtz@pueblocc.edu). Qualifying students may still enroll in full semester courses up to Friday, September 16. Special tutoring and support services will be provided to assist students in completing any missed work. PCC will also be offering several courses beginning at mid-term, which begins on October 17.
In accordance with the
policy, students from the affected areas will be eligible to apply for a waiver of out-of-state tuition or to have tuition and fees deferred for the fall 2005 semester, if they have already paid tuition to their home institution, or received financial aid from their home institution. Any waivers or deferments in subsequent semesters will be dependent upon available funds and revisions to policies. Pueblo Community College
does not have residence halls and will be referring new students admitted under this policy to other housing options. Pueblo Community College
Displaced Transfer Students:
has created a plan for working with displaced students wanting to salvage their degree plans. We will be ready to create alternate-transfer courses for enrollment in October, if necessary. Students who wish to be kept informed about these courses should contact the Counseling, Career and Transfer Department at (719) 549-3030. Pueblo Community College
