Response to Hurricane Katrina:
The University's Web site will track St. Lawrence response to the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

St. Lawrence University will enroll up to 10 visiting students with no charge for tuition, room, board and fees, for the fall or spring semesters. (Books and transportation are the responsibility of each student.) To qualify, students must have been enrolled at institutions in the devastated region. Students will be admitted to the University as non-matriculated students, with the intent of having the classes transferred back to their home institutions. The St. Lawrence Admissions office (1-800-285-1856, will expedite admissions and faculty and staff will coordinate immediate course placement.

St. Lawrence knows of 23 alumni with home addresses in Louisiana and 9 alumni with addresses in Mississippi. We welcome an e-mail or call (315-229-5567) with news of their safety.
