Students - LSU College Readiness/Dual Enrollment Program


Students can jump-start their collegiate career by benefiting from dual enrollment (DE). However, it is crucial to note that DE course grades become a permanent part of a student’s college transcript.

Instructions to Access Student Transcripts

Student Benefits

  • DE enables students to take LSU courses within their familiar high school environment, alongside teachers and fellow students they know.

  • DE grants students the chance to complete a significant portion of their first-year college courses while still in high school, potentially reducing the time required to earn an LSU degree.

  • DE provides LSU courses at a reduced tuition rate.

  • DE equips students with the necessary skills and readiness for successive coursework at LSU.

  • DE students who earn credit from LSU in College Algebra and Trigonometry, on average, achieve higher GPAs during their first year at LSU compared to students without DE credit.

Student Requirements

  • Students must currently attend a public or private Louisiana high school participating in the LSU College Readiness Program.
  • Students must maintain good standing as defined by their high school.
  • Students must fulfill the specific requirements and prerequisites for each college course.
  • Students must be concurrently enrolled in the high school course corresponding to the relevant university course, and their grades must be recorded on both their secondary and postsecondary academic records.

LSU does not directly offer DE courses to individual students. In order for students to be enrolled in an LSU DE course, their high schools must participate in the LSU College Readiness Program. Each course incurs a tuition fee of $100 per credit hour per semester.
