Distance Program

Students must have the permission of Office of Business Student Success prior to scheduling Distance Learning Programs (DLP) coursework.

Students who are taking classroom courses at the university may not take DLP courses. Students not enrolled in classroom courses during a given semester may be approved for DLP courses through the Office of Business Student Success (Business Education Complex, Room 2000) and may enroll at the Distance Learning Programs Office (1225 Pleasant Hall; 225-578-3171). Enrollment in DLP courses must be completed by the final date for adding courses for any semester, including summer term.

Students taking IDL courses must complete 50 percent of their business courses through the regular LSU course offerings, no more than 12 semester hours of IDL credit may be applied toward the degree requirements of the college, and the IDL courses will not count toward college residency.  General Education courses taken via IDL are limited to 6 hours.

The deadline for completion of all DLP coursework is the last day of final examinations for the semester during which the student is enrolled. A student must complete all DLP coursework before registering to receive a degree and no degree may be awarded during a semester in which a student is enrolled in a DLP course.
