Hey everyone!

As you and your students head into the holiday break, the ULM Office of Recruitment wanted to leave you and your seniors with a few reminders and important dates.

Important Dates:

We have enjoyed working with you this semester and look forward to continue working with you and your students in the spring.

Also, if you’ve emailed us recently, know that we’ve received your messages and shared all transcripts and test scores with our Admissions Processors. Unfortunately, we’re having technical difficulties and are unable to respond via email. Feel free to leave your phone number, and we’d be happy to call you as soon as we’re back in the office.

As a reminder, we will be out for Christmas/New Year Break starting December 19th and will return on January 4th.

Happy Holidays!!

LSU Test Optional Policy

In response to the global pandemic and limited testing opportunities nationwide, LSU will not require ACT or SAT scores for students applying for the Spring, Summer, or Fall 2021 semesters.

This policy aligns with our admissions philosophy of a full file comprehensive review, which LSU has implemented for the past two admissions cycles.

LSU considers numerous factors for each applicant, including high school grades, curriculum rigor, grade trends, grades in courses related to major interest, a letter of recommendation, optional essay, activities & awards. Removing test scores means we consider only one less factor for students who choose not to include these in their application.

Our admissions committee is trained to understand the context of a high school curriculum and how students' performance in high school will predict their potential for success at LSU.

Beginning Monday, December 7, applicants will have the option on the Common Application to select applying test optional. Students who have already applied to LSU may fill out the Test Optional form on the checklist found in their LSU Admissions Portal.

All students, regardless of test score submission, will receive full consideration for university administered scholarships. Currently, however, test scores are still required for TOPS. To ensure the anticipated TOPS award is accurately reflected in a student's total scholarship package, all admitted students will still need to submit test scores to LSU, if available. Those scores will not be used for LSU scholarship evaluation for students who elect to waive the testing requirement.

The priority deadline to complete the Test Optional Request form is Tuesday, December 15 to ensure appropriate consideration for admission and/or scholarships. The student's response to that form is final.

For more information about LSU's test optional policy, please view our Test Optional FAQ page.

Very important information!!!


  1. The scholarship deadline has been extended from January 31st to May 31st , 2021. This allows the seniors to use the February and April ACT for Scholarship consideration. Please note that the student’s application to the university also serves as their application for scholarships. There is nothing separate they must fill out. Offers have begun rolling out to students.  
  2. The Application Fee is being waived the entire month of November. If your students have not applied yet, we strongly encourage them to do so before the end of the month.  
  3. For those students who plan on living on campus, the housing portal officially opened today. The student must apply and have been accepted before they will have access to the housing portal.  
  4. Our final Preview Day of the semester is scheduled for December 5th.  We are also still currently offering in person campus tours. If a student is interested, they can use this link to register for both.

LELA will be hosting a FAFSA Night through a Zoom presentation on Tuesday, November 17 from 6:00-7:00.

I will send the link to the Zoom Meeting on Monday Nov. 16. Please check back here or the Seniors 2021 Google Classroom for the link.

Louisiana Scholars' College – Northwestern State University

The Louisiana Scholar’s College is now offering a new program: an accelerate BA/MA program, which allows students to earns a master’s degree in addition to their undergraduate degree with only one extra year of study. As you know it typically takes two years to complete a master’s degree. By allowing some graduate coursework to count towards their undergraduate requirements, students can earn their master’s degree in half-the-time and half-the-cost. 

The accelerate BA/MA program is one example of the Scholars’ Advantage: the various benefits of an education at the state’s designated honors college. As part of Northwestern State University, the Louisiana Scholars’ College offers students all the benefits of a large university but with a small college experience: low student-to-faculty ratio, a close-knit community, seminar-style classes, and supportive faculty. WE are not an honors program, but a college with our own faculty, curriculum, and high admission standards. 

Please contact your guidance counselor for more information. 

Greetings from SLCC!

What a crazy year this has been!  We have made many changes at SLCC to accommodate social distancing require ments, and we want you to know that these changes have made the college more accessible than ever.  While our offices and classrooms may not be doing as much face-to-face interaction, we are making the most of online technology, so our students don’t get left behind.  As part of this effort, we will be sending bi-weekly emails to high school counselors and community members who we work with throughout the year to ensure that students have easy access to college.  In our first email, we focus on the cost of an SLCC education and College and Money a free online mini-course that will teach students about college financing options and what they need to consider.  Finally, because our faculty are an important part of what makes an SLCC education great, we focus  on one of our valued instructors.

How much does it cost to attend SLCC?
