State Budget and TOPS
The third special legislative session began on June 18. Currently, LSU’s budget is slated for a cut of $21 million, and LSU’s TOPS students could experience a $2,202 reduction in their TOPS awards next fall. The decisions to fund higher education and TOPS rest with the Legislature. The LSU Alumni Association is asking those concerned about these cuts to join Tiger Advocates. Visit lsualumni.org/tiger-advocates to learn more about Tiger Advocates and how you can help. For ongoing information, visit LSU’s budget hub at lsu.edu/budget.
