Roadmap to Fall

We're excited to announce plans to reopen for on-campus instruction this fall. As we return to traditional on-campus operations, we want to assure the LSU community that safety is our guidepost. We will follow all CDC and state safety guidance, and will do everything possible to protect the health of our students, faculty and staff.

Any updates and modifications to fall reopening will be communicated on this site in the coming weeks. All information provided is subject to change if the public health and safety situation changes.
