President Cowen has issued another statement and has made it explicit that no student will pay more than the usual tuition for Fall 05. The relevant section (but read it all):
It has recently come to my attention that some of our students have been asked to pay tuition at their host institution. Let me be clear: No Tulane student will ultimately have to pay more than they would have if they were at Tulane for the fall semester. Therefore I have instructed university financial staff to make sure this issue is resolved in a fair and equitable manner as soon as possible once we have access to our student billing records and the manpower to review and resolve each situation. Just be patient because it will take several weeks before we are able to address these issues. In the meantime, any student who had to pay two tuition bills should contact firstname.lastname@example.org immediately and identify yourself as an affected student, giving us as much information as you can about your circumstances.
