MADISON — Tulane University’s Madison branch has now been cleared for students to receive federal student loans, a little too late for some classes that were scheduled to begin this week.
Sherry Chance, director of the branch, tells The Clarion-Ledger that the U.S. Department of Education handed down the official certification of the campus as an institution of higher learning yesterday.
The federal approval is needed so that lenders can process federal student loans.
On May 28, university officials decided to cancel the five classes that were to start yesterday and run through July 12.
Richard Marksbury, dean of the School of Continuing Studies that operates the Madison campus, said the university expected the federal approval before classes were to start.
