    NEW INFORMATION FROM LOUISIANA STATE UNIVERSITY'S OFFICE OF ADMISSIONS

    The Office of Admissions is in the depths of making changes starting with significant upgrades to our systems as we implement the Slate product. This is fundamental to all other changes necessary. LSU encourages you to become familiar with Slate.org, a free tool that will enable an easier high school visit scheduling process with college representatives, maintain awareness of where your students are within the admissions process, and conveniently and securely submit materials.

    Starting with applicants for the Summer/Fall 2019 term, LSU will require at least one letter of recommendation from an academic source (counselor, teacher, advisor, administrator, etc.) as they transition to a fully holistic evaluation process. A letter of recommendation will also prove useful to scholarship awarding where more depth of an applicant is necessary for specific college and donor awards.

    The primary avenue for all freshman and transfer applicants applying for admissions and scholarships will now be the Common Application. Students may start their application now, but please note the LSU Common Application section will not be live until early August. 

    We have also adjusted our freshman application deadlines for Summer/Fall 2019 to be December 15 (Priority Date) and February 1 (Regular Decision). While LSU has historically provided a formal date of releasing decisions, we do not believe that any decisions will be released sooner than October 15 this year. 

     

     

     

    FINAL TRANSCRIPTS: Seniors must sign the transcript request form to have final transcripts sent to the college of choice. Forms are available in the main office.

     

    TRANSCRIPT INFORMATION

    Forms are available in the main office for students to request copies of their transcripts.

    Fees: $2.00 per copy mail out

    ALERT: ALL SENIORS/JUNIORS MUST HAVE A CONSENT FORM IN THE GUIDANCE OFFICE TO SUBMIT TRANSCRIPTS TO THE LOUISIANA OFFICE OF STUDENT FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE. Student transcripts will not be submitted to the state if this form has not been signed and turned in to the guidance counselors. Please check with your counselor to make sure your information has been received. Colleges can NOT access your transcripts once you apply if consent has not been given. Please don't delay in turning in your consent!
