happy to offer this waiver for those affected by the tornadoes
that devastated so much of our area on April 27. We at Northeast
realize the necessity of responding rapidly to assist students
in our service area. Dr. Campbell further stated, We are well
aware of the concern that some of our students who were victims
of the storms have about completing programs of study and the

employable. This is one more way that Northeast can be
