Frequently Asked Questions

I will be graduating this year. Will I be able to participate?

Yes, you will be able to participate in any experience that is completed before your graduation date. If you graduate in December, you are eligible to participate in a Fall Break trip. If you are graduating in May, you are eligible to participate in a Fall, Winter, or Spring Break trip. If you are graduating in August, you are eligible to participate in a Fall, Winter, Spring or Summer trip during the previous academic year.

Are these destinations safe?

Yes, LSU Service Breaks routinely monitor the U.S. Department of State Travel Restrictions and works through the LSU Office of Risk Management to control exposure to risk on all of the experiences. 

I’m not sure if I can afford an LSU Service Break. What can I do?

If cost is a concern, we still encourage you to apply. Every Service Breaks member will engage in fundraising for the trips, and some scholarships from Campus Life are available.
