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

The Outreach Division of the Office of Undergraduate Admissions & Student Aid actively encourages the referral of prospective freshman and transfer students from Alumni, LSU faculty and staff, high school counselors, and community contacts. The office makes available special contact forms for these referrals that provide record of personal contact with prospects.

Applications will be considered by evaluating prospective students' likelihood of success at LSU.

The University operates on a two-semester plan with an additional multi-session summer term and three multi-week intercessions that take place between the spring, summer, and fall semesters. Qualified applicants—except in the School of Social Work, the MBA 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 information is routinely sent to students who have their scores on the SAT or ACT test sent to the University. LSU's code is 6373 for the SAT and 1590 for the ACT. The application for admission is found at www.lsu.edu.

All applicants are encouraged to apply well before the deadline dates and send transcripts of all college work attempted, if any, as soon as possible. High school students should ask their schools to send transcripts of all work to date at the time application is made. Complete transcripts will be required after high school graduation. Louisiana high schools submit electronic transcripts to the State Department of Education, which LSU can access upon receiving a student's application for admission. Students can check with their guidance counselor to verify their school's participation in this program.

A nonrefundable application fee of $40 must accompany the application for admission or re-entry. This fee can be submitted using the online payment options or via check or U.S. money order drawn on a U.S. bank and showing the name of the applicant for whom payment is made. The University is not responsible for cash sent by mail. 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 a student subsequently enrolls. All former LSU students who have not been enrolled for one or more semesters must submit an application for re-entry.

The application for admission also serves as the application for all freshman scholarship programs and for the Honors College. The priority deadline for full consideration for LSU scholarships and for admission to the Honors College is November 15. All required information (including an official high school transcript, standardized test scores, and essay (for Honors College admission) must be submitted by that date to ensure full consideration. Scholarship offers are made from December through March. For additional information on the Honors College application process, contact the college at 225-LSU-8831 or at honors@lsu.edu.

Arrangements for admission, financial aid, and housing are made separately through the Office of Undergraduate Admissions & Student Aid, and the Office of Residential Life, respectively. Students applying for on-campus housing must first be accepted to LSU. Once students have been accepted, they may apply online for on-campus housing at www.lsu.edu/housing. 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 & Enrollment Services" and "Financial Aid & Scholarships" in this catalog.

Application deadlines:

  • April 15 for fall semester.
  • December 1 for the spring semester (October 1 for persons requiring an I-20).
  • April 15 for the summer term.
  • July 1 for all applicants (final date to submit all credentials)

Applications submitted after the published deadline are considered on an appeal basis only and must be accompanied by a $55 nonrefundable fee ($40 application fee and $15 late fee). Approval of these appeals is not guaranteed.

Economically disadvantaged students who do not have the resources to pay the admission application fee to LSU may request an application fee waiver. For the purposes of this scholarship fund, economically disadvantaged will be defined as either meets the income requirements of Pelican Promise (which equates to a family income that is 150 percent of the poverty level), receives free lunch at his/her high school, or received the ACT/SAT fee waiver.

This fund will be awarded on a case by case basis. Please contact the Office of Admissions & Student Aid, admissions@lsu.edu for instructions on how to apply for this waiver.

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, meningitis, mumps, rubella, tetanus, diphtheria, and tuberculosis screening prior to enrollment at the University. The required proof should be submitted to LSU Student Health Center, Baton Rouge, Louisiana 70803.

Return to Top

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. Questions regarding compliance should be directed to the Admissions Division of the Office of Undergraduate Admissions & Student Aid, Pleasant Hall, Baton Rouge, Louisiana 70803.

RESIDENCY

Eligibility for classification as a Louisiana resident is determined by the Office of Under-graduate Admissions & Student Aid 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.

An 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 Admissions Division of the Office of Under-graduate Admissions & Student Aid. Continuing students must contact the Office of the University Registrar for establishment of residency.

EDUCATIONAL REQUIREMENTS AND ADMISSION POLICY

ADMISSION STANDARDS

Anyone who wishes to be considered for undergraduate admission to LSU is encouraged to apply.

LSU will consider for admission the total high school record: rigor of courses completed, grades, test scores, educational objectives, school leadership, and breadth of experiences in and out of the classroom. Admission is based on a review of the high school record and official standardized test scores. The minimum requirements for assured admission are 3.0 Academic gpa* on 18 units of college- preparatory high school courses** as outlined in the LSU Core and a 1030 SAT (Critical Reading and Math)/22 Composite ACT †.

Students must be eligible to enroll in university-level English and mathematics courses, as evidenced by a minimum SAT Critical Reading Score of 450 (ACT English subscore of 18) and a minimum SAT Math score of 460 (ACT Math subscore of 19). Preference for admission to LSU will be given to those students whose credentials indicate the greatest promise of academic success and the greatest potential for contributing to the diverse missions of the University.

Applications will be reviewed against the following basic criteria:

Units** GPA* SAT or ACT † Class Rank
18 3.00 1030 or 22 -
18 3.00 - Top 15%
17 3.00 - Top 10%
17 3.00 1090 or 24 -
17 3.20 1060 or 23 -
17 3.50 1030 or 22 -
*The gpa is calculated solely on the academic high school units for admission to LSU.
**High school units required for admission are listed in table below. Applicants with less than 18 units are expected to meet unit requirements in categories 1-5, at least.

† An applicant's standardized test scores will be verified in cases where there is an increase of six or more points on the ACT or an increase of 220 or more points on the SAT..

Students who do not meet the admissions standards outlined above should submit supporting documentation and a letter outlining their qualifications for admission with their initial application. The Admissions Committee will review qualifications and application packages to determine whether additional predictors of success exist as a basis for admission. Other factors, such as choice of degree program, rank in class, scores on required tests (SAT or ACT), credit in advanced placement and honors courses, pattern and quality of courses, grade trends, educational objectives, extracurricular activities, and school recommendations will be considered in the admission process. In addition, special talents, significant life and career experience, or membership in groups under-represented in the student body will be evaluated and weighed before decisions to offer admission are made.

Other Considerations

Applicants who meet the educational requirements listed in this catalog will be considered for admission. Admission will be denied if requirements listed in this catalog are not met. 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 Faculty Undergraduate Admissions Committee. The purpose of the Admissions 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.

The weighted scholastic gpa is considered in the holistic review.

Direct Admission into Senior College

Three of the senior colleges at LSU currently have provisions for applicant screening and admission before beginning study at LSU: Agriculture; Business; and Music & Dramatic Arts. Refer to chapters dedicated to the individual college for detailed information on the process for admission to the college or degree program.

Student-Athletes

An applicant 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 (NCAA). A student-athlete at LSU will be subject to a number of special academic requirements, which are specified in the rules of the Southeastern Conference (SEC) and the NCAA.

Home Schooled, GED, Unaccredited or Unapproved High Schools

Individuals applying for admission to LSU after completing home-schooling, receiving GEDs, or graduating from unaccredited or unapproved high schools will be evaluated on the basis of qualifications outlined above.

Early and Dual Enrollment 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 three units of English; an overall academic average of 3.00 ("B"); and a composite score of 28 ACT/1250 SAT. A limited number of students are selected from those who meet these requirements. 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 a Dual 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 gpa of 3.00 ("B"), a composite score of 27 ACT/1210 SAT, and be recommended by the high school principal or counselor for enrollment in a specific course or courses.

Students applying for dual enrollment 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 dual enrollment requires renewed approval each semester.

Dual enrollment students are eligible for honors activities and are encouraged to visit the Honors College office. The University College Center for Freshman Year staff are available for advice or information, whether or not the student intends to enroll at LSU as a degree-seeking student.

The Louisiana Early Start Program provides tuition assistance to eligible 11th and 12th grade students from public high schools that enroll in eligible college courses (as listed on the current Board of Regents’ Master Course Articulation Matrix) for dual credit at an eligible public or private college or university. Students must be in good standing as defined by the high school and meet LSU admission criteria for dual enrollment.

Campus Tours

Campus tours are offered at 10 a.m., Monday-Friday, excluding University holidays, in the Memorial Tower. Tour sessions begin with an overview of the campus, descriptions of programs of study, admission requirements, and information about student aid and scholarships. Special Saturday tours are conducted in the fall and spring semesters. To make a tour reservation, prospective students, parents, or groups are encouraged to contact the Outreach Division of the Office of Undergraduate Admissions & Student Aid at 225-578-6908.

Freshman Orientation and Registration

Freshman applicants who intend to enroll in the fall must apply by April 15, have SAT or ACT scores on file, and participate in a fresh-man orientation and registration program. This program includes testing for placement or advanced standing and the opportunity to meet with an advisor to select courses for the coming semester. Program announcements are sent to high schools and to newly admitted students. The deadline for registration in all orientation programs is May 1.

Admission to a Senior College

Refer to chapters dedicated to the individual colleges or schools for details on requirements for admission to a senior college and/or to a degree program.

Transfer Students

Students with previous college or university work from regionally accredited institutions may be considered for admission if they have an overall 2.50 gpa or better on all college work attempted, including a college-level course in English and in mathematics (above remedial). Transfer applicants who have earned fewer than 30 hours of college-level work (above remedial) must also meet the requirements for freshman admission (See "Freshmen" in this chapter.)

LSU computes the 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," "B," "C," "D," or "F." The symbols "+" or "-" are disregarded. Grade point averages will be computed using the lower grade given by institutions that issue upper/lower grades ("AB," "BC," etc.). 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.

All students will be considered for admission based on an evaluation of their likelihood of success at LSU. LSU will consider college gpa, pattern and quality of courses taken, grade trends, educational objectives, special talents, significant life and career experiences, membership in groups under represented in the student body, or special circumstances.

A prospective transfer student should submit an admission application and a complete official transcript 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 granted when it is impossible to obtain final records prior to scheduled registration dates. This admission will be canceled if the required records are not received by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions & Student Aid within 30 days of the first day of classes or if it is determined, upon receipt and review of final records, that the applicant is not qualified for admission.

A student athlete who is awarded an athletic grant-in-aid may be admitted if he/she meets the standards found in Bylaw 14.5 of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). A student athlete at LSU will be subject to a number of special academic requirements specified in the rules of the Southeastern Conference (SEC) and the NCAA.

Transfer Student Orientation and Registration

Transfer students are required to participate in the Transfer Student Orientation program. This program provides information about student services and resources at LSU and the credit evaluation process. Students meet with an advisor, obtain an ID card and PAWS (Personal Access Web Services) account, and schedule classes. Announcements regarding the program are sent to applicants.

Re-entering Students

Re-entering students who have not enrolled in the University for one or more regular semesters must apply for readmission. Students who have attempted 15 or more semester hours at other accredited colleges or universities since last attending LSU must have a gpa of at least 2.50 on all college work attempted including a college-level course in English and in mathematics above the remedial level.

Students applying to re-enter the University:

  • must submit an application and a complete official transcript from each college or university attended since leaving LSU, regardless of whether credit was earned, desired, or transferable;
  • must meet senior college scholastic requirements for re-entry; or
  • may be placed on scholastic probation or warning upon re-entry.

Acceptance of Credit from Other Collegiate Institutions

The Admissions Division of the Office of Undergraduate Admissions & Student Aid evaluates credit from other institutions after the student's complete application and all official transcripts from each college and university attended have been received. Credit earned in colleges and universities accredited by regional accrediting associations is generally accepted; however, courses taken at the lower (1000-2000) level cannot be given upper (3000-4000) level credit. Credit allowed by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions & Student Aid for transfer is, in all cases, subject to review by the student's senior college with regard to its applicability toward a particular degree.

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 ad-mitt ed 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 at the institution where they were previously enrolled, based on grades earned in course work recorded on transcripts received after registration, will have the appropriate academic action applied immediately.

Questions relating to the evaluation of credit should be referred to the Admissions Division of the Office of Undergraduate Admissions & Student Aid. 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 senior college or school. For additional information, see the chapter titled, "Undergraduate Degree Requirements and Regulations."

INTERNATIONAL APPLICANTS

International admission requirements are applied to all students who have international secondary or post-secondary educational credentials, regardless of country of citizenship, immigrant status, or visa status. All students who have only U.S. secondary and post-secondary educational credentials must meet U.S. admission requirements as detailed in previous sections. Applications from students with both U.S. and international educational credentials may be reviewed according to either or both U.S. and international requirements.

Any transcript or documentation issued in a language other than English must be sent with an official English translation. The Admissions Division of the Office of Undergraduate Admissions & Student Aid is solely responsible for evaluating and determining the equivalencies of international credentials and grading scales.

English Proficiency Requirement

An applicant whose native language is not English and/or who has been educated outside of the U.S. in a country or province where English is not the only official language must demonstrate proof of English proficiency by submitting either a TOEFL or an IELTS score.

On the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language), the following minimum scores are required for automatic admission:

  • 550 (paper-based exam)
  • 213 (computer-based exam)
  • 79 (internet-based exam)

Information regarding TOEFL may be obtained by visiting the official Web site at www.toefl.org.

On the IELTS (International English Language Testing Service), the following minimum score is required for automatic admission:

  • 6. 5

Information about IELTS may be found at www.ielts.org.

Official TOEFL/IELTS scores are those reported directly to LSU by the respective testing service at the request of the student.

Applicants may be exempt from the TOEFL/IELTS requirement if they have completed one of the following:

  • a U.S. high school diploma earned, having attended all four years of high school in the U.S.;
  • a bachelor's degree earned from an accredited U.S. institution;
  • a score of 480 on the English/Critical Reading section of the SAT; or 20 on the English Section of the ACT;
  • U.S. transfer requirements (minimum 2.50 overall gpa on 30 or more semester hours above remedial level, including a college-level course in English and in mathematics, or two consecutive English courses, from a regionally accredited U.S. college or university)

Official transcripts or scores are required showing completion of one of the above before a student can be exempted from the TOEFL/ IELTS requirement. The Office of Undergraduate Admissions & Student Aid reserves the right to require a satisfactory TOEFL/IELTS score from any applicant. All international students who are admitted (except for transfer students who have submitted a satisfactory TOEFL/IELTS score and have received transfer credit from an accredited U.S. institution for the equivalent of LSU's English 1001 and 2000 or 1004 and 1005 with a grade of "C" or better in each) will be required to take an English placement test prior to registration.

First Time Freshman Students

International students who have never attended a post-secondary education institution will apply as freshmen (first-year students), and must have the equivalent of a U.S. high school diploma with an academic average equivalent to “B” (3.0 or better on the U.S. 4-point grading system). The “academic average” is determined by averaging the grades of secondary school academic courses, excluding nonacademic courses such as physical education, vocational/technical courses, religion, art, music, etc.

Students must submit complete official records for the secondary level of education, and are strongly encouraged to submit ACT or SAT scores. Students who have taken advanced-level exams, international baccalaureate higher level exams, or other types of secondary education beyond the 12th year of schooling should submit the official certificates or transcripts and course syllabi for possible advanced placement university credit.

International Transfer Students

From International Institutions

International students who have attended any post-secondary level college, university, or institution must apply as transfer students. LSU requires the equivalent of a 3.0 ("B" average on the U.S. 4-point grading system) for all transferable credit from accredited international institutions. Applicants with less than the equivalent of 30 semester hours of transferable credit (approximately one year of full-time study) must also qualify for freshman admission.

Students must submit official transcripts from each post-secondary institution attended, listing courses taken and grades earned. Also required are the official course descriptions or syllabi to be evaluated for possible credit toward an LSU degree. Transfer credit is not given for English as a second language, non-English native language courses, or vocational/technical courses. For LSU to award transfer credit, the institution must be accredited/recognized by the Ministry of Education or equivalent government agency in that country, and be suitable for university-level credit.

From U.S. Institutions

International students who have attended a regionally accredited U.S. college or university must meet U.S. transfer requirements: an overall gpa of at least 2.50 and 30 semester hours of transferable credit, including college-level courses in both English and mathematics. Refer to the section on "Transfer Requirements." If less than 30 hours are earned, freshman requirements must also be met.

From Both International & U.S. Institutions

If credit is earned from both international and U.S. post-secondary accredited institutions, a 3.0 gpa is required from international institutions, and a 2.5 gpa is required on all U.S. college work. Refer to the sections above. Students who have less than a 3.0 gpa from international institutions may be admitted if:

  1. they meet the requirements for transfer from a U.S. accredited college or university (30 semester hours of credit above remedial, 2.50 gpa, math and English courses), and
  2. have an overall gpa of 2.50 or higher when the U.S. gpa is combined with the international gpa. In this case, courses passed with the equivalent of "C" or higher will be considered for transfer credit from accredited post-secondary international institutions.

Application Procedure

Application deadlines for international students are April 15 for summer or fall semesters and October 1 for the spring semester. However, all required documents should be sent at least 120 days before the semester starts to allow for processing time, especially if an I-20 immigration form is needed for the student visa application. Processing time may be extensive for some applications.

The application form should be completed online at www.lsu.edu. The $40 application fee can be submitted online by credit card, or mailed to the office by check or money order drawn on a U.S. bank. The following materials must be sent to the Admissions Division of the Office of Undergraduate Admissions & Student Aid, Pleasant Hall, Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, LA 70803:

  • complete, official academic records;
  • official TOEFL or IELTS scores; and
  • evidence of financial support.

"Official transcript" is defined as an official record prepared by the issuing institution and sealed in the institution's official envelope.

Expenses

International applicants are required to offer proof of the availability of sufficient funds to meet all costs while studying at the University. Total expenses, excluding travel to and from Baton Rouge, for the calendar year (12 months) are estimated to be $28,000 for undergraduate students who are not residents of Louisiana. International students residing in Louisiana cannot be considered Louisiana residents unless they are permanent residents of the U.S., among other criteria.

All fees and costs are subject to change.

OTHER ENROLLMENT OPPORTUNITIES

Distance Program

Admission to college-level distance program courses at LSU does not constitute admission to a degree program at the University. However, students may enroll for distance program courses prior to being admitted to the University.

Credit earned in distance program 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 distance program credit toward an LSU degree should submit an official "Application for Admission" form (available from the Admissions Division of the Office of Undergraduate Admissions & Student Aid). In addition to the application form, students should submit official transcripts of all previous academic work.

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

A distance program course grade will be posted to the transcript when the course is completed. If a student takes the examination by the last day of the final examination period of a semester/summer term, the grade will be posted to that semester/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, the distance program grade will be posted to the next regular semester or summer term. Distance program grades will not be posted to intersession.

Students who become ineligible while a distance program 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 distance program courses.

No more than one-fourth of the number of hours required for the bachelor's degree may be taken through Continuing Education by distance program courses. Specific information regarding acceptance of distance program courses toward fulfillment of degree requirements is provided in college and school sections of this catalog. Before scheduling distance program courses, LSU students must obtain approval of their academic 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 (who are in academic and institutional good-standing) may be admitted as visiting students for one semester or summer term only. These students must submit official transcripts of all college work previously taken. 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. These students will be evaluated on the admission 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. Visiting 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.

International students are not eligible for this program except for the summer term and, in addition, are required to submit a TOEFL score that meets admission requirements.

LSU/Baton Rouge Community College Cross-Enrollment Program

LSU and Baton Rouge Community College (BRCC) 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 tuition and 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-enrollment program have access to the library at the other institution.

Before enrolling, a student must obtain written approval from the dean of his/her college. Courses taken at BRCC that are approved for college work at LSU are re-corded as transfer credit. 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 either institution. Students should consult the Registration Schedule of Classes for additional details.

Academic Common Market

Louisiana participates with 13 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 be accepted for admission into a program to which their state has made arrangements to send its students, and 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.)

Placement 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 Invitational Program, 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.

SAT/ACT Scores

Only scores sent directly to the University from the SAT or ACT Testing Centers are considered official. It is essential that we have your Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or American College Test (ACT) scores on file to enroll you in the proper freshman English and math classes. LSU will use the best Math and English ACT scores to award credit, and the best composite score for admission purposes.

If you indicated that you wanted your scores sent to LSU when you took the SAT or ACT exam, then your official scores are on file at LSU. If you did not have the testing center send your scores directly to LSU, request that your official scores be sent immediately. To request your scores be sent:

Math Placement

Placement in and credit for LSU math courses is based on any one of the following :

  1. the quantitative score on the SAT (QSAT) or the math ACT (MACT)
  2. the scores on the LSU Math Placement Tests for Math 1021 College Algebra, Math 1022 Trigonometry, and Math 1550 Calculus I
  3. the results of the AP or CLEP exams in College Algebra, Trigonometry and Calculus

LSU Math Placement Tests for Math 1021 College Algebra and Math 1022 Trigonometry

Students are strongly encouraged to take the LSU Math Placement Tests to try to improve their MACT or QSAT placement and to earn course credit. A student's appropriate scores on the LSU Math Placement Tests can result in placement in a higher-level math course than the MACT or QSAT placement but cannot result in placement lower than the MACT or QSAT placement. Low scores on the LSU Math Placement Tests cannot nullify any credits that a student has earned from other exams.

Credit for Math 1021 College Algebra can be earned by making the required score on either the MACT, QSAT or the LSU Math Placement Test for College Algebra, and credit in Math 1022 Trigonometry can be earned by the LSU Math Placement Test for Trigonometry but not the QSAT or the MACT score.

Retroactive Credit for Math 1021 College Algebra and Math 1022 Trigonometry

If a student's initial placement is Math 1431, 1441, or 1550 and he/she receives a grade of "C" or better in one of these courses, then he/she can receive retroactive credit for Math 1021 (if needed).

If a student receives a grade of "C" or better in Math 1552/1553/1554, then retroactive credit in Math 1022 can be awarded if required by the student's degree program.

Math 1023 Precalculus

Math 1023 Precalculus is recommended only for students who plan to take Math 1550 Calculus I. Math 1023 is a 5-hour course, and this course alone does not fulfill the 6-hour GenEd Analytical Reasoning requirement.

A student may not earn credit in both Math 1021 and 1023, or in 1022 and 1023, since the 1023 course duplicates the content in both Math 1021 and Math 1022.

Math 1029 Contemporary Mathematics and Math 1100 The Nature of Mathematics

Math 1029 Contemporary Mathematics and Math 1100 The Nature of Mathematics are intended primarily for liberal arts and some social sciences majors.

Math 1431 Business Calculus

Math 1431 Business Calculus does not require knowledge of trigonometry.

Credit for Math 1550 Calculus I, Math 1552 Calculus II, and other courses

Credit for Math 1550 Calculus I may be earned either by an AP or CLEP Calculus exam or by the LSU Placement Test for Calculus. Credit in Math 1552 may be earned by the AP Calculus BC exam or by an LSU departmental credit exam. Credit in more advanced math courses may be obtained through departmental credit exams; contact the department for more information about these.

The AP Statistics exam does not currently provide advanced-standing credit for any course offered by the math department.

MACT score below 20

Students who have a score of 19 or below on the MACT are generally not placed into Math 1021. The remedial algebra course MATH 0092 is no longer offered at LSU. Students needing remedial algebra must either take Math 0092 at BRCC or Southern, take the course through Continuing Ed, or sign a Math Waiver (get from UCFY) to take Math 1021 regardless of the warning that success is unlikely. Students with a MACT of 18 or 19 can be successful in Math 1021 but only if the student has a very strong work ethic and invests a lot of time in the math lab.

18 -19 430–479   Off-campus intermediate algebra, Math 1029, or 1100
Below 18 Below 430   Off-campus intermediate algebra

English Placement

Your SAT or ACT score will determine your initial placement in either English 1001 or 2000 or will grant you an exemption from the first-year writing requirement. If you feel that you have been incorrectly placed, you will have the opportunity to challenge this placement by writing an essay, which you may submit online in mid June, July, or August. You will receive your scores approximately two weeks after you submit your essay. You can find more information at the following URL: http://www.lsu.edu/uwp/assess/placement.html

You will be placed in the appropriate class on the basis of your essay. Your score on the LSU writing exam can result in placement in a higher-level English course but not in a placement lower than your initial placement. The chart below illustrates initial English placement.

ENGLISH PLACEMENT BY ACT OR SAT SCORES

ACT English Score ACT English Score + Composite* SAT Critical Reading Score Course Credited Placement
32 or higher 65 minimum (or 5 on the part of the CEEB exam) 720 or higher ENGL 1001 ENGL 2000 Exempt from English Composition

Application for Federal Financial Aid

Students who wish to apply for the programs described in this section should file either the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the Renewal Application. The FAFSA is available online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. It is recommended that the application be filed no later than March 1 for summer or fall enrollment or October 1 for spring enrollment. These applications cover aid awarded for the upcoming academic year (beginning with the summer term) and application must be made each year.

Once the Office of Undergraduate Admissions & Student Aid has received your FAFSA, additional documentation will be requested through your PAW or myLSU accounts. To receive a loan for the academic year, the deadline to return all required documents is the first business day of May. To receive a semester only loan, the deadline to return all required documents is:

  • Summer only loans—Last business day of July
  • Fall only loans—First business day of December
  • Spring only loans—First business day of May

For consideration for Pell grants only, documents may be accepted later than the stated dates. Check with the Student Aid Office for deadlines.

Once all documents are processed, an award letter will be sent via the student's PAWS or myLSU account to allow them to accept or decline their aid. The deadline for a student to accept a loan is:

  • Semester only loans—First day of final exams for that semester
  • Academic year loans (summer/fall/spring or fall/spring loans)—First day of spring semester final exams

Please note that students will not receive an award notice until all verification documents have been properly submitted and processed. Documents submitted after the stated deadlines may not result in an award. Student submitting documents after the stated deadlines may jeopardize their opportunity to receive funding for that academic year.

For additional information on these programs, as well as, information regarding how financial need is determined and an LSU student's cost of attendance, visit www.lsu.edu/financialaid.

Grants

  • Federal Pell Grants—Undergraduate students working toward their first degree are eligible for consideration. Eligibility is determined by a federal need analysis formula.
  • Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants—Undergraduate students working toward their first degree, who show exceptional financial need may qualify. Funds are limited.
  • Leveraging Educational Assistance Partnership (LEAP)—Undergraduate students working toward first degree, who show financial need may qualify. Student must be a Louisiana resident and have a 3.00 gpa.
  • Academic Competitiveness Grant (ICG) —At least half-time undergraduate students who completed a "rigorous" high school program of study and are:
    1. eligible for a Federal Pell Grant;
    2. have earned less than 60 credit hours; and
    3. meet several other requirements may qualify for this program.
  • National Science and Mathematics Access to Retain Talent Grant (National SMART Grant)—At least half-time undergraduate students who have earned between 60 and 119 credit hours who are:
    1. eligible for a Federal Pell Grant;
    2. majoring in specific math, science, or critical foreign languages; and
    3. meet several other requirements may qualify for this program.

Campus-Based Programs

  • Federal Perkins Loans—Low-interest (5 percent) loans made by LSU and repaid to LSU. Interest is subsidized while the student is in school. Students must show financial need and be enrolled at least half-time. Deferment and cancellation privileges are available under certain circumstances. Funds are limited.
  • Federal Work-Study Program—Campus jobs provided to full-time students, not on academic probation, who show financial need.

William D. Ford Federal Direct Loans

LSU participates in the following Loan Programs:

  • Direct Subsidized Stafford Loans—Based on financial need, the interest on this loan does not accrue while the student is in school. Payments are deferred until six months after the student ceases being enrolled on at least a half-time basis.
  • Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loans— This program enables students to borrow, regardless of need. Interest will accrue on this loan while the student is enrolled, and may be paid or capitalized as agreed by the borrower and the lender.
  • Direct Parent Loan for Undergraduate Students (PLUS)—This program allows parents of dependent students to borrow per year up to the cost of education, less any other aid. The repayment period begins on the day the loan is disbursed, and the first installment to the lender is due within 60 days of that date. This loan is not based on need.
  • Direct Graduate PLUS Loans (GRAD PLUS)—This program is a loan for graduate and professional students that are taken in their own name. This loan will give these students a valuable federal loan alternative to private loans. Just like parent borrowers, these students will be able to borrow under the PLUS program up to the cost of education less other aid received. In addition, these borrowers will have to meet the same credit eligibility requirements that apply to parent borrowers.

Loan disbursements normally occur the week prior to the start of classes. Depending on the award package, loans will be disbursed accordingly:

  1. summer, fall, and spring loans will occur in three equal disbursements;
  2. fall and spring loans will occur in two equal disbursements; and
  3. semester only loans will disburse in one disbursement at the start of the semester. All federal aid funds are applied directly to your student account in the Office of Bursar Operations. If the amount credited to your account is greater than the amount you owe to the University, you will be issued a refund for the credit balance. Allow up to seven business days for the Office of Bursar Operations to process a direct deposit or refund check.

Students borrowing under the William D. Ford Direct Loan Program described above, except Parent PLUS, are required by federal regulation to have an entrance counseling session before they receive their first disbursement at LSU. This brief online session explains important information about borrowing student loans and money management during school. When a student borrower graduates, resigns, or otherwise ceases to be enrolled on at least a half-time basis at LSU, he/she is required to attend an exit counseling session. The online session explains what the borrower should expect upon entering loan repayment. Entrance counseling can be accomplished at www.studentloans.gov. Exit counseling can be accomplished at www.nslds.ed.gov. For additional information on a student's rights and responsibilities regarding federal financial aid, refer to www.lsu.edu/financialaid to view The Guide to Federal Student Aid published by the U.S. Department of Education.

Loan Cancellation

The deadlines for a student (or parent in the case of a PLUS loan) to cancel one or more of their loans or disbursements of their loan(s), is as follows:

  • Academic year loans: 1st business day of May
  • Summer only loans: Last business day of July
  • Fall only loans: 1st business day of Dec.
  • Spring only loans:1st business day of May

Contact the Student Aid Division of the Office of Undergraduate Admissions & Student Aid for information on how to complete this process. Exceptions to the stated deadlines will be made on a case-by-case basis.

Satisfactory Academic Progress for Purposes of Financial Aid Eligibility

Undergraduate Students

In order to receive financial aid, a student must be making "satisfactory academic progress." For the purpose of participating in any of the federal student aid programs, the LSU Office of Undergraduate Admissions & Student Aid has established the following policy for determining satisfactory academic progress for undergraduate students:

  • Students must not be on academic probation if they have enrolled for less than four semesters.
  • Students must have a 2.0 cumulative gpa at the end of their fourth semester attempted and thereafter.
  • Students must earn at least 75 percent of hours attempted for the past academic year.
  • Students may only receive financial aid for a maximum of 180 attempted credit hours (238 for 5 year curricula).
  • Students pursuing a second Bachelor's degree may only receive financial aid for a maximum of 60 attempted hours beyond the first degree. Student's pursuing a third bachelor's degree are not eligible for federal financial aid.

If these established criteria are not met at the end of the spring semester, students may seek to appeal if mitigating circumstances affected their academic performance. Students are mailed an appeal form when they are not considered to be making satisfactory academic progress at the end of the spring semester. For a student to re-establish eligibility they must either (1) receive an approved appeal or (2) meet the Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements at the end of the next spring semester. The complete Satisfactory Academic Progress policy may be viewed at www.lsu.edu/financialaid.

Graduate/Professional Students

For the purpose of participating in any of the federal student aid programs, the LSU Office of Undergraduate Admissions & Student Aid has established the following policy for determining satisfactory progress for graduate and professional students:

Graduate Students:

  • Students must have a 3.0 cumulative gpa.
  • Students must earn at least 75 percent of hours attempted for the past academic year.
  • Master's students may receive financial aid for a maximum of five years from the first semester of their program.
  • Students pursuing a second master's degree may receive financial aid for a maximum of five years from the first semester enrolled in the program. Students pursuing a third master's degree are not eligible for federal financial aid.
  • Doctorate students may receive financial aid for a maximum of seven years from the first semester of their program.
  • Students pursuing a second doctorate degree are not eligible for federal financial aid.

Professional Students:

  • Students must have a 2.0 cumulative gpa.
  • Students must earn at least 75 percent of hours attempted for the past academic year.
  • Law students enrolled in the JD/BCL program may receive financial aid for a maximum of 145 attempted credit hours.
  • Law students enrolled in the LLM or MCL program may receive financial aid for a maximum of 39 attempted hours.
  • Students enrolled in the DVM program may receive financial aid for a maximum of 265 attempted course hours.

If these established criteria are not met at the end of the spring semester, students may seek to appeal if mitigating circumstances affected their academic performance. Students are notified when they are not considered to be making satisfactory academic progress at the end of the spring semester. For a student to re-establish eligibility they must either (1) receive an approved appeal or (2) meet the Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements at the end of the next spring semester. The complete Satisfactory Academic Progress policy may be viewed at www.lsu.edu/financialaid.

Resignations/Unofficial Withdrawals

Students who receive financial aid funds and then resign or unofficially withdraw (cease attendance) during the first 60 percent of the enrollment period will be required to repay all or part of the aid they received. The amount of aid that must be returned is based on the period of time the student remained enrolled. Detailed information regarding the return of funds and post withdrawal disbursements, if applicable, is located at www.lsu.edu/financialaid.

Federal aid must be returned within 45 days to the appropriate programs in the following order: Unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loans, Subsidized Federal Stafford Loans, Perkins Loans, PLUS (Parent) Loans, Graduate PLUS Loan, Pell Grants, Academic Competitiveness Grant (ACG), National SMART Grant and SEOG. The amount of aid to be returned will be calculated at the time of resignation. For unofficial withdrawals, the amount will be calculated at the end of the enrollment period. Until this obligation is settled, requests for academic transcripts will not be processed and any further financial aid may be in jeopardy.

Campus Employment

Those students who want to work on campus, but do not qualify on the basis of financial need, may seek regular student employment by contacting various departments on campus. Only full-time students who are not on academic probation are eligible to hold campus jobs. Graduating seniors who are part-time in their final semester may have permission to work in a campus job. The Career Services location in B-4 Coates Hall provides assistance to those who seek part-time, internship, co-op, or volunteer positions on and off campus. Graduate students should inquire about the availability of assistantships in their departmental offices. For additional information, visit www.lsu.edu/career.

Short-Term LSU Loans

Full-time students, who have completed registration, and have not received a credit balance check, may apply for short-term Hiram Student Loans in the amount of $300 for undergraduate students and $500 for graduate/professional students. Students must not be on academic probation to receive these loans. Students must have repaid any prior short-term loans to be eligible. Loans are made starting on the first day of classes and continues for the first two weeks of classes. Students are permitted a maximum of 60 days to repay the loan in full. A 2 percent service charge is assessed on the amount borrowed. This 2 percent service charge is equivalent to an annual interest rate of 12 percent.

Hiram Student Loans are to be repaid at the Office of Bursar Operations, 125 Thomas Boyd Hall, on or before the maturity date shown on the promissory note signed by the student at the time the loan was negotiated. Students who fail to repay Hiram Student Loans by the maturity date may jeopardize their chances of receiving future loans.

Accounts that must be turned over to LSU's attorneys for collection are assessed an additional collection fee. All international students who are interested in Hiram Loans should contact the International Student Office prior to receiving loans or working in jobs on campus.

VETERANS' BENEFITS

The Office of the University Registrar, 112 Thomas Boyd Hall, provides counseling and information for veterans attending LSU. Enrollment certifications to the Department of Veterans' Affairs are handled through this office, and all veterans and eligible dependents of deceased or disabled veterans are urged to establish contact with the Department of Veterans' Affairs when they arrive on campus. New students who wish to receive advance pay should notify this office at least 30 days prior to registration. Information is also available at the Department of Veterans' Affairs Web site: www.lsu.edu/slas/vetaffairs.
