National University High School to Offer Free Tuition to Students Grades 9-12 Displaced by Katrina

September 8, 2005

A plan is currently being created in which National University will offer free tuition to displaced students Grades 9-12 in Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi who wish to attend the National University Virtual High School.

Under the leadership of National University System Chancellor and National University President Dr. Jerry C. Lee, the focus of the plan is to offer high school students in the region the opportunity to continue their education while recovering from the devastating effects of Hurricane Katrina.
National University will work closely with the governors, legislatures, and state high school superintendents to bring this project to fruition. National University's initial plans are to make the free tuition available for one full academic year.

In addition, National University will approach its corporate partners and friends of the University about offering their support in helping provide laptop computers and other necessary hardware to the students so they can resume their studies as quickly as possible.

A pioneer in developing online programs for undergraduate and graduate college students, the National University System established the National University Virtual High School to meet the rising demand for high-quality, affordable and accessible online courses for high school students. NUVHS offers unique, high-quality curriculum and supplemental programs serving a range of online learners.
