Tulane-Madison ‘glitch’ cancels classes
MADISON — When a Tulane University satellite campus opens Tuesday in Madison, Miss., only three of the classes that were set for a June start will begin.
Branch director Sherry Chance tells the Madison County Herald that a “bureaucratic glitch” canceled seven summer courses.
Richard Marksbury, dean of Tulane’s School of Continuing Studies, says the U.S. Department of Education has not yet certified the campus as an institution eligible for federal student loans.
He says there was miscommunication between Tulane and the U.S. Department of Education. He says it was not Tulane’s fault.
Marksbury says the three classes beginning on Tuesday will cover both summer semesters, and their students don’t need financial aid to pay the three-hour course fee of $846.
