LSU Second Chance

For students who have been away from the university for five or more years, the LSU Second Chance policy allows a student to apply for readmission with grades earned at LSU in the past (with a grade of “C-“ or better) to be included in the total hours earned. These grades are not used in the computation of the GPA; however, these hours may be applied to degree program requirements, which can shorten the time to completion. Students do not have to repeat courses where they were previously successful.

See the LSU General Catalog for details and eligibility.
