A West Tennessee university is offering a helping hand to students at Lambuth University after the school closes on June 30. Freed-Hardeman University announced Monday afternoon a plan it said would smooth the transition for Lambuth University students who would like to transfer to FHU this summer or fall. “We will do all that we can to facilitate a smooth academic and economic transition,” Dr. Joe Wiley, president of Freed-Hardeman University, said. FHU said it will duplicate scholarship awards received by Lambuth students in the spring semester up to 100 percent of tuition. The universtiy will also allow students that did not recieve a scholarship during the spring 2010 semester the opportunity to apply for an FHU transfer scholarship. Freed-Hardeman also created a web site listing that specified the Lambuth University equivalencies to FHU general education requirements. A step-by-step transfer guide is also available on the web site: fhu.edu/lambuth. In addition, Freed-Hardeman has waived the usual $100 housing application fee for Lambuth transfers. “It is difficult to know how best to help,” Wiley added, “but we want to provide assistance and encouragement in accord with the way we would want our students to be treated if they were in a similar situation.”
