On Tuesday afternoon, Gov. Ron DeSantis’ office sent out a news release touting an emergency order signed by university system chancellor Ray Rodrigues.
The order, which points to an increase in antisemitic instances nationwide, waives credit requirements and application deadlines for transfer students. It also grants universities the ability to waive out-of-state tuition and fees.
It says each university must determine whether the student seeking to transfer demonstrates a “wellfounded fear of persecution on the basis of religion.”
