Following is an excerpt from an announcement from the Chancellor of the
University of Maine System setting policy for this matter:
...Any student - from Maine or from any other state - currently enrolled in
a college or university that postponed or terminated classes due to
hurricane-related damage or conditions is invited to enroll at one of
Maine's seven universities under 'visiting student' status. This offer
applies to any undergraduate or graduate student enrolled at any accredited
institution in the regions affected by the hurricane.
Such students will be allowed to enroll without having to follow the usual
application process and will be offered in-state tuition rates, given the
unique conditions under which they would be enrolling. University personnel
will work with each student to identify the most appropriate option for
them within the University System.
For both current University of Maine System students who are from the
hurricane-affected region and for those who enroll as ''visiting
students', the University System will provide whatever accommodations are
appropriate to assist them with health, housing, counseling, and
temporary financial needs.
Students in need of assistance are encouraged to contact the University
System at 1-800-804-3200, ext. 3237, or through the world-wide web at
In addition, Maine's public universities will be working with their student
and employee clubs, teams, and organizations to support humanitarian aid
and other relief efforts.
