Storm victims given extension to pay tuition

August 11, 2007


Kansas University is giving students affected by recent natural disasters some extra time to pay their tuition.

Tuition bills for fall semester were sent last month, with the first payments due Wednesday.

The university said it would waive late fees and work out individual deferred payment plans for students living in 10 counties hit by flooding and storms this spring and summer.

"When your family home or business has been flooded out, you have more immediate concerns than a tuition due date. We hope this will give those students under hardship some time and flexibility to focus on recovery and getting their lives back to normal," Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor Richard Lariviere said in July.

The policy applies to students from Elk, Miami, Montgomery, Neosho, Wilson, Edwards, Kiowa, Osage, Pratt and Stafford counties.

Students may fill out a form at to qualify.
