University College is dedicated to students achieving excellence at LSU. Academic and personal success is the hallmark of a well-rounded student, and University College provides a foundation of support services for students beginning their academic careers at LSU. Since its establishment in 1933 as “Lower Division,” University College has served as the portal of entry for most incoming freshmen enrolling at LSU. It also serves many returning students and transfer students who are not yet eligible for admission to a degree-granting senior college on campus. The two enrollment divisions of University College are The Center for Freshman Year and The Center for Advising and Counseling. In addition, a variety of retention-specific programs that focus on particular student populations are a significant part of the role and mission of University College.
