LSU welcomes applications from all interested students without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, handicap, marital status, or veteran's handicap. The University is committed to making fair and timely decisions on applications submitted.

The University operates on a two-semester plan with an additional multi-session summer term. Qualified applicants, except in the School of Social Work, the M.B.A. program, and the School of Veterinary Medicine, may initiate their studies at the beginning of any semester or term. For detailed information concerning admission to graduate and professional schools, see the section, "Graduate School - Professional Programs" in this catalog.

APPLYING FOR ADMISSION

Application packets are routinely sent to students who have their scores on the American College Test (ACT) or Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) sent to the University. Undergraduate applications are also available in many high schools and can be requested by writing or calling the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at 225/388-1175.

All applicants are encouraged to apply well before the deadline dates and should send transcripts of all college work attempted, if any, as soon as possible. Students should ask their high schools to send transcripts of all work to date to LSU at the time application is made. Complete transcripts will be required after high school graduation.

A nonrefundable application fee of $25 must accompany the application for admission or reentry. This fee should be paid by a check drawn on a U.S. bank (or U.S. money order) and show the name of the student for whom payment is made. This service fee is used to help cover the cost of processing applications. It is neither refunded if admission is denied, nor is it applied against other costs when the student subsequently enrolls. All former LSU students who have not been enrolled for one or more semesters must submit an application for reentry.

The application for admission also serves as the application for the main scholarship programs for freshmen. Arrangements for admission, housing, and need based financial aid are made separately through the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, the Office of Residential Life, and the Office of Student Aid and Scholarships, respectively. Filing an application for admission does not entitle an applicant to University housing or financial aid; nor is the filing of a housing application, the assignment to a room, or the award of financial aid a commitment of admission to the University. For further information, see the sections, "Student Life and Academic Services" and "Financial Aid and Scholarships" in this catalog.

Application deadlines are:

May 1 for fall semester.
December 1 for the spring semester (November 1 for persons who are not U.S. citizens or immigrants).
May 1 for the summer term.

LSU enforces the application deadline for all undergraduate applications. In addition, all credential (transcripts, test scores, etc.) for fall applicants must be in our office by July 1 to be reviewed for fall admission. Any student who submits an application after the stated deadline will be considered on an appeal basis only. Exceptions will be considered only in circumstances of unusual hardship. If a late application is accepted, the application may be assessed a late application fee.

IMMUNIZATION POLICY

All students enrolling for the first time at LSU or after an absence of one semester or more must furnish proof of immunization for (or immunity to) measles, mumps, rubella, tetanus, and diphtheria prior to enrollment at the University. The required proof should be submitted to LSU, Office of Undergraduate Admissions, 110 Thomas Boyd Hall, Baton Rouge, Louisiana 70803, or phone 225/388-1175.

CERTIFICATION OF SELECTIVE SERVICE COMPLIANCE

All persons who are required to register for the federal draft under the federal Military Selective Service Act shall be required to certify on their application for admission that they have registered with the Selective Service. All questions regarding compliance should be directed to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, 110 Thomas Boyd Hall, Baton Rouge, LA 70803.

RESIDENCY

Eligibility for classification as a Louisiana resident is determined by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions in accordance with LSU System regulations and is based on evidence provided on the application for admission and related documents. Regulations relate primarily to location of the home and place of employment. A resident student is defined as one who has abandoned all prior domiciles and has been domiciled in the state of Louisiana continuously for at least one full year (365 days) immediately preceding the first day of classes of the term for which classification as a resident is sought.

The individual's physical presence within this state for one year must be associated with substantial evidence that such presence was with the intent to maintain a Louisiana domicile. Physical presence within the state solely for educational purposes without substantial evidence of the intent to remain in Louisiana will not be sufficient for classification as a resident, regardless of the length of time within the state.

Factors considered in establishing residency, although not necessarily conclusive, include financial independence from parents residing in another state or country, reliance on Louisiana resources for financial support, continuous presence in Louisiana during periods when not enrolled as a student, commitments indicating an intent to stay in Louisiana permanently, paying Louisiana income taxes as a resident during the past tax year, and the absence of these indicia in other states during any period for which domicile in Louisiana is asserted.

Special provisions have been made for adults moving to Louisiana for employment purposes, military personnel stationed in Louisiana, and international students with immigrant visas. An international student on a student visa is classified as a nonresident.

Resident classification and all fees are audited and adjusted, if necessary, after each registration. Appropriate credits or charges are then made to the student's account.

For additional information concerning the establishment of residency, contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.

EDUCATIONAL REQUIREMENTS AND ADMISSION POLICY

All students who wish to be considered for undergraduate admission to LSU are encouraged to apply.

Freshmen: Fall 2000

Starting in the Fall 2000, students with the following will be automatically admitted:

high school GPA of $ 3.5, ACT $28 (SAT 1260), and rigorous college preparatory curriculum in an accredited of state-approved high school; or
17.5 specified high school units listed in Table I and a high school academic GPA/ACT combination of $ 2.5/20 (SAT 950). LSU has determined that the following combinations of GPA/ACT will be accepted as equivalent: 2.30/23; 2.40/21; and 2.60/19; or
16 of 17.5 specified units listed in Table I and a high school academic GPA/ACT combination of $ 2.5/22 (SAT 1030), 2.7/21 (SAT 990), or 3.0/20 (SAT 950).

All other students will be considered for admission based on an evaluation of their likelihood of success at LSU. The purpose of the Admission Committee review is to evaluate the qualifications of each applicant to determine whether equivalent predictors of success exist and whether to admit the student on this basis.

A student athlete who is awarded an athletic grant-in-aid may be admitted if he/she meets the standards found in Bylaw 14.3.1 of the National Collegiate Athletic Association. A student athlete at LSU will be subject to a number of special academic requirements specified in the rules of the Southeastern Conference and the NCAA.

Graduates of unapproved high schools must meet the unit requirements and submit satisfactory grades and an ACT composite score of 21 or higher or an SAT combined score of 990 or higher. GED graduates will also be subject to the requirements as outlined above.

A Louisiana resident who is at least 21 years old may apply for admission. The applicant's entire background—education, training, and experience—will be considered.

A student athlete who is awarded an athletic grant-in-aid may be admitted if he/she meets the standards found in Bylaw 14.3.1 of the National Collegiate Athletic Association. A student athlete at LSU will be subject to a number of special academic requirements specified in the rules of the Southeastern Conference and the NCAA.

The Undergraduate Admissions Committee considers grade-point average, standardized test scores, class rank, pattern and quality of courses, curriculum, grade trends, educational objectives, extracurricular activities, leadership abilities, and school recommendations. Students may be admitted on the basis of special talents, significant life and career experience, or membership in groups underrepresented in the student body.

Early and Concurrent Admission Requirements

The Early Admission Program permits high school students who have not completed all requirements for a high-school diploma to apply for admission to LSU as regular students, provided they fulfill these minimum

requirements: 15 units of high school credit, including 3 units of English; an overall academic average of 3.00 ("B"); and an ACT composite score of 28. From the students who meet these requirements, a limited number are selected. Among the considerations in selection are maturity, rank in class, grades, recommendation of the high school principal and others, and additional evidence of scholarly achievement.

The University has instituted a Concurrent High School University Enrollment program especially designed for high school students who demonstrate the maturity and scholastic ability to be successful in college work. Participation in this program permits exceptional high school seniors to enroll in one or more courses at LSU when space, faculty, and other facilities are available. Students must have a grade-point average of 3.00 ("A" = 4.0), an ACT composite of 27 or SAT (math plus verbal) of 1220, and be recommended by the high school principal or counselor for enrollment in a specific course or courses.

Students applying for concurrent study must have completed the most advanced courses offered by their school in the academic areas in which they wish to enroll, or must be considered qualified for the college course by the principal or counselor. Continued concurrent enrollment requires renewal of approval each semester.

Concurrent enrollment students are eligible for honors activities and are encouraged to visit the Honors College office. The Honors College staff will be available for advice or information, whether or not the student intends to pursue honors activities.

Advanced-Placement Program

See the end of this chapter for information about advanced placement for entering freshmen.

Freshman Orientation and Registration

Freshman applicants who intend to enroll in the fall must apply by May 1, have ACT or SAT scores on file, and participate in the freshman orientation and registration program. This program includes testing for placement and advanced standing, and the opportunity to meet with a counselor for advice on the selection of courses for the fall semester. Announcements giving dates and complete information regarding this program are sent to applicants and to high schools.

Transfer Students

Students with previous college or university work from regionally accredited institutions may be considered for admission if they have an overall 2.00 grade-point average or better on all college work attempted. Transfer applicants who have earned fewer than 24 hours of college-level work (above remedial) must meet the requirements for freshman admission (See "Freshmen" in this chapter.)

LSU computes the grade-point average (gpa) on all courses taken, including repeated courses, courses with incomplete grades, and those with any other grades, except "W," "WA," "WB," "WC," "WD," "WF," "unsatisfactory," and "no credit." Each computed grade becomes an "A," equaling four quality points; "B" = 3; "C" = 2; "D" = 1; and "F" = 0. The symbols "+" and "-" are disregarded. Grades of "pass," "credit," and "satisfactory" will be treated alike and will be counted as earned hours, but not in the computation of the gpa. "Fail" will count as hours attempted, but not as hours earned, and will be used to compute the gpa, including any remedial course work. This policy is followed, regardless of the practices of the sending institution, including other LSU System campuses.

Students who have attempted 60 or more semester hours must meet the requirements for admission to one of the colleges.

A prospective transfer student should submit an admission application and a complete official transcript(s) from each college or university attended, whether or not credit was earned or is desired.

Students enrolled in college at the time applications are submitted should have transcripts sent when they apply for admission, to be followed by supplementary records at the close of the semester. Provisional admission, pending receipt of supplementary records, may be given when it is impossible to obtain these records prior to scheduled registration dates.

This admission will be canceled if the required records are not received by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions within 30 days from the first day of classes or if it is determined, upon receipt of records, that the applicant does not qualify for admission.

Re-entering Students

A re-entering student who has not enrolled in the University for one or more regular semesters must apply for readmission. If that student has attempted 12 or more semester hours at other accredited colleges or universities since last attending LSU, a grade-point average of at least 2.00 on all college work attempted is required.

LSU students applying to re-enter the University (1) must submit an application and complete official transcript(s) from each college or university attended since leaving LSU, regardless of whether credit was earned or transferable, (2) must meet college scholastic requirements for re-entry, and (3) may be placed on probation upon re-entry. A re-entering student who has attempted 60 or more semester hours may be admitted to the University only if the student meets the requirements for admission to one of the colleges.

Acceptance of Credit from Other Collegiate Institutions

The evaluation of credit from other institutions is made in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions after the student's complete application and all official transcripts from each college and university attended are received. In general, credit earned in colleges and universities accredited by regional accrediting associations is accepted.

For schools not regionally accredited, the University is guided in its decision regarding acceptance of credit by recommendations of selected institutions in the states in which the schools are located. Applicants who are admitted are given an opportunity, usually through advanced-standing examinations, to validate some or all of the credit. Each student's record from a nonaccredited college will be considered on the basis of individual merit.

Students who are placed on probation or made ineligible to continue, based on grades earned in course work recorded on transcripts received after registration, will have the appropriate academic action applied immediately.

Credit allowed by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions for transfer is, in all cases, subject to review by the student's college with regard to its applicability toward a particular degree. Questions relating to the evaluation of credit should be referred to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Questions relating to the acceptance of credit toward a degree program and the length of time required for completion of degree requirements should be referred to the appropriate college or school. For additional information, see the chapter, "Undergraduate Degree Requirements and Regulations."

International Applicants

International students with superior scholastic records and English proficiency, as demonstrated by acceptable scores on recognized tests, are considered for admission as freshmen or transfer students. Freshman applicants must be graduates of recognized secondary schools comparable in level to U.S. high schools. Applicants must complete the equivalent of 17½ required high school units (see "Freshmen"). Transfer students who have earned less than 24 semester hours of college-level work (above remedial) must meet both freshman and transfer requirements.

Factors considered in making admission decisions are grades earned, subjects taken, and ability to carry a full course of study; scores on college entrance examinations such as the American College Test, the Scholastic Aptitude Test of the College Board, or the Prueba de Aptitud Academica; appropriateness of proposed field of study in relation to the applicant's general ability; and letters of recommendation.

An applicant whose native language is not English is required to submit a score of at least 500 on the paper-based Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), or 173 on the computer-based TOEFL. This is a test designed to evaluate proficiency in English and is administered at testing centers overseas and throughout the U.S. Information regarding this test may be obtained by writing to TOEFL, Educational Testing Service, Princeton, New Jersey 08541.

All students not previously enrolled at LSU will be required to take an English placement test prior to registration and to schedule, beginning in the first semester of enrollment, required courses in English as determined by this test.

Applications for the fall semester are not accepted after May 1; after November 1 for the spring semester; and after May 1 for the summer term. To be assured of an admission decision prior to registration, the following materials must be in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at least 90 days before the beginning of the semester in which admission is desired:

application for admission;
a nonrefundable application fee of $25—check or money order (a U.S. money order or a check drawn on a United States bank);
complete, official scholastic records;
scores on entrance examinations (if required); and
scores on the Test of English as a Foreign Language.

When sufficient scholastic records and acceptable evidence of English proficiency are not received early enough to determine admissibility for the semester for which application was made, consideration will be delayed until the following semester.

International applicants are required to offer proof of the availability of sufficient funds to meet all costs while studying at the University.

OTHER ENROLLMENT OPPORTUNITIES

LSU Senior College Program at Alexandria

Through its Senior College at Alexandria, LSU provides central Louisiana residents with the opportunity to earn a baccalaureate degree by taking all classes on the Alexandria campus. Degree programs offered in the Senior College are: Bachelor of General Studies; Bachelor of Science in General Business Administration; and Bachelor of Science in Elementary Grades Education. Interested students should contact their respective senior colleges for additional information.

LSU 25+

LSU 25+ (formerly known as PASS) is a special category of admissions for adult students. Adults who are at least 25 years of age and who have a high school diploma or GED certificate are eligible for admission to LSU through LSU 25+. Although students do not have to submit ACT and SAT scores, complete official transcripts of all prior college work are required. Official transcripts must be mailed directly to LSU from the sending institution. No student will be admitted to the program who is down more than 48 quality points. Students are subject to LSU's admissions deadlines and will be assessed a late fee if their applications are accepted after the deadline. The deadline for admission, the transcript requirement, and the minimum age will be waived for students who have earned a bachelor's degree or higher from an accredited college or university. Students with a bachelor's degree or higher will be assessed a late fee, however, if applying after the deadline.

Students admitted through LSU 25+ are eligible to schedule courses for college credit, provided they meet the prerequisites for the courses. Students may enroll in order to prepare for possible entry into LSU as a regularly admitted student, to upgrade job skills, or to take courses for personal enrichment.

LSU 25+ students may schedule a maximum of nine hours per semester and earn a maximum of 24 semester hours in the program. Students who earn 24 hours in LSU 25+ (excluding remedial courses) may apply for regular admission to the University. Students who seek regular admission to LSU after completing LSU 25+ will be evaluated on the admissions standards in place for transfer students at the time of their application for regular admission. some senior colleges have admissions criteria exceeding those for general admission to the University. Prospective students should consult individual senior colleges for information on additional requirements for specific degree programs. LSU 25+ students who gain admission to the University as regularly admitted students are subject to the requirements of the catalog in effect at the time of their admission as regular students.

LSU 25+ is not designed for international students or students who plan to apply for veteran's benefits or financial aid. These students must be enrolled in degree programs.

Applications for LSU 25+ will be processed by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.

The Evening School will provide counseling for all students in LSU 25+. For further information, contact LSU Evening School, 388 Pleasant Hall, LSU, Baton Rouge, LA 70803 or call 225/388-5213; fax 225/388-5305.

Correspondence Study

Admission to college level correspondence (independent study) courses at LSU does not constitute admission to a degree program at the University. However, students may enroll for correspondence study prior to being admitted to the University.

Credit earned in correspondence courses may be submitted for evaluation toward an undergraduate degree at LSU or may be transferred to another institution. Students not enrolled at LSU who plan to apply correspondence credit toward an LSU degree should submit an official "Application for Admission" form (available from the Office of Undergraduate Admissions). In addition to the application form, students should submit official transcripts of all previous academic work.

Admission to correspondence study will be granted to enrolled LSU undergraduate students upon approval of their college deans, which must be indicated on the Independent Study application form. Students who have been dropped from the University for scholastic, disciplinary, or attendance reasons may be admitted to correspondence study courses on a noncredit basis only.

Correspondence course grades will be posted to the transcript when the course is completed. If a registered student takes the final examination by the last day of the examination period of a semester/summer term, the grade will be posted to that semester/summer term. The grade will be used to determine academic action at the conclusion of that semester or summer term. If the examination is taken after that date, or if the student is not registered, the correspondence grade will be posted to the next regular semester or summer term for which the student is registered. The grade will be used to determine academic action for that semester or summer term. Correspondence course grades will not be posted to intersession. Students who become ineligible while a correspondence course is in progress may complete the course for degree credit. During their period of ineligibility to enroll, students may register on a noncredit basis for correspondence courses.

No more than one-fourth of the number of hours required for the bachelor's degree may be taken through the Division of Continuing Education by correspondence study. Specific information regarding acceptance of correspondence study toward fulfillment of degree requirements is provided in college and school sections of this catalog. Before scheduling correspondence courses, LSU students must obtain approval of their college deans.

Visiting Students

Students enrolled in another accredited college or university who are eligible to continue in that institution in the next regular term and who are not on scholastic warning or probation may be admitted as visiting students for one semester or summer term only. These students must submit a statement from the registrar of that school. This statement must include the total number of semester or quarter hours of credit previously earned. Students admitted on a visiting student basis who wish to be considered for regular admission must complete a new application for admission and must supply official transcripts of all college work previously taken. International students are not eligible for this program.

Interinstitutional Cooperative Program—LSU/Southern University

LSU students may enroll in courses at Southern University through a cross-registration program. Before enrolling, a student must obtain prior written approval from the dean of his or her college. See the "LSU - Southern University Cooperative Programs" section of this catalog for details.

LSU/Baton Rouge Community College Cross-Enrollment Program

LSU and Baton Rouge Community College students may take courses at the other institution through a cross-enrollment program between the two institutions. This program enables students to take courses not available at the institution where they matriculate. Both full-time and part-time students are eligible to participate. Unless special course fees are assessed, full-time students pay no additional fees. Part-time students pay fees based on the total number of hours for which they are registered and any special course fees.

Participants are allowed the same library privileges granted to the student body at the home institution. Students participating in the cross-registration program have access to the library at the other institution.

Courses taken at Baton Rouge Community College that are approved for college work at LSU are recorded as transfer credit, as is all course work taken outside the LSU System. Interested students can obtain information from the Office of the University Registrar at LSU, the Registrar’s Office at Baton Rouge Community College, and the offices of academic deans at both institutions. Before enrolling, a student must obtain prior written approval from the dean of his/her college. Students should consult the current Registration Schedule of Classes for additional details.

Academic Common Market

Louisiana participates with thirteen other southern states in the Academic Common Market, an interstate agreement for sharing uncommon programs. Residents of these states who are accepted for admission into selected out-of-state programs can enroll on an in-state tuition basis.

To enroll as Academic Common Market students, applicants must (1) be accepted for admission into a program to which their state has made arrangements to send its students, and (2) obtain certification of residency from the Common Market Coordinator in their home state. Applications for admission should be made directly to the institution offering the program. Additional information about the Academic Common Market and programs available at in-state tuition rates for residents of Louisiana can be obtained from the Office of the University Registrar.

Academic Bankruptcy

Under specified conditions, undergraduate students who have interrupted their college careers for a period of at least five consecutive calendar years may, at the time of application for admission to the University, declare academic bankruptcy. (See the Undergraduate Degree Requirements and Regulations" section of this catalog.)

Other Considerations

Applicants who meet the educational requirements listed in this catalog will be considered for admission. Admission is not automatically granted when these requirements are met; it may be denied if other factors, in the judgment of University officials, merit denial. Issues such as limited enrollment in certain curricula, timeliness of application, unavailability of certain programs, and other relevant factors may be considered. Furthermore, the University may deny admission, readmission, or continued enrollment to persons whose behavior is disruptive, dangerous, or abusive.

Students may appeal admission decisions to the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Life and Academic Services. Such appeals will be heard only after the application has been reviewed by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions and the Undergraduate Admissions Committee.

Advanced-Standing Program

All new freshman students entering LSU may take departmental Advanced-Standing Examinations. Appropriate course placement and academic credit earned are determined by the students' scores. These examinations are administered at no additional charge to participants in the Spring Testing, Freshman Orientation, or Special International Student Testing programs, provided the students complete the tests by the final date to add courses for credit during their first term of enrollment at LSU. Credit earned through placement tests and advanced-standing examinations taken while students are not enrolled in the University (all System campuses) will be awarded in the next semester for which they are enrolled for resident credit, provided they register at LSU within two years. ACT—The American College Test - ACT scores are used in granting advanced-standing credit in freshman English and mathematics placement.

AP—The Advanced-Placement Program of the College Board - Advanced-Placement credit will be granted in appropriate subject to freshmen who earn a grade of 3, 4, or 5 on Advanced-Placement subject examinations, as specified in the chart below.

About one-fourth of American secondary schools currently participate in the Advanced-Placement Program of the College Board. Each May, these examinations are administered (by the College Board) to students who have participated in the program. The following table shows credit awarded by LSU and the score requirements. (Note—the specific history course will be decided after the department interviews the student.) Departmental recommendations may be subject to change. Contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions for current recommendations.

For information about general program data and policies, contact either Advanced-Placement Program, The College Board, 45 Columbia Ave., New York, NY 10023-6917; or the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, Louisiana 70803-2802.

CLEP—Subject Examinations of the College Level Examination Program - Policies governing minimum required scores and the acceptance of credit are established by the appropriate academic departments. LSU allows credit on CLEP subject examinations in 20 areas. (Credit is not allowed for CLEP general examinations.) Departmental course credit recommendations for satisfactory scores on CLEP subject examinations are included in the table below.
