Prospective Students | LSU Manship School of Mass Communication

Prospective Students

The Manship School has the highest entrance requirements across campus - and the best graduation rates. Put simply, once students get in, they stay in, achieve and graduate. We also offer a residential college living experience for freshmen to help students succeed that first year and make the transition from home and high school to college easier. Additionally, we offer more than $230,000 in scholarships every year that is above what LSU awards.
