The recent floods in Texas and Louisiana have impacted students from the Lehigh Valley who are enrolled at colleges and universities in the flooded areas. Muhlenberg, along with other Lehigh Valley colleges, is participating in a temporary enrollment program to support those local students whose college educations would otherwise be disrupted by these events.

In addition to Muhlenberg, Cedar Crest College, DeSales University, Lafayette College, Lehigh University and Moravian College have agreed to offer students that are enrolled in colleges affected by the flooding the opportunity to take courses on a space-available basis. This temporary enrollment will provide these students the opportunity to continue their education until they can return safely to their college or university in the flooded area.
