We are super excited to be celebrating Community College Week with a slate of activities on March 22-26.  We hope you'll be joining us!  Please share with your students and their families.

Events: Full line-up of events this week.


UL Lafayette Graduate Student Organization - Home | Facebook

UL Lafayette will begin accepting students based on their GPA scores immediately. Students who have applied to the university and have a 3.0+ GPA (overall) will be admitted. ACT/SAT scores are optional requirements. This is a brand-new policy as of this afternoon-02/25/21.

We believe GPA markers are good indicators of success at UL. Application decisions are happening over the course of this week and next week. Students will be notified by email of their admissions decision. Moving forward, we will be admitting students using these criteria.

Important things to Note:
Students will more than likely be asked to take the Accuplacer for placement. The University will handle administering the test including in-person and remote testing opportunities to accommodate out-of-state students. More information about this will be released later.

Scholarship opportunities still require an ACT or SAT score on file. We begin offering scholarships with 3.0 GPA (cumulative) and 23 ACT Composite/1130 SAT. We continue to encourage students to send us test scores if they are expecting scholarship awards.

Two other items to note:
We are still offering in person campus tours. They are offered Monday-Friday at various times each day. 

Due to high demand, we will be offering another Preview Day on Saturday, March 13th. Use the following link to register for Preview Day as well as a campus tour:

Reminders that are beneficial to the seniors who will be attending or would like to attend the University of Louisiana at Lafayette:

  1. The Application Fee is being waived the entire month of February. If you have not applied yet, we strongly encourage you to do so before the end of the month to avoid paying the $25 fee.
  2. A reminder that 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.   
  3. All our campus tours are posted for the month of February. It is the perfect time for students to visit campus if they have not yet done so.  They can use this link to register:

  • Jan. 31st = Priority Scholarship Deadline. Please encourage ALL students to apply (for free) before Jan. 31st, as we can only guarantee scholarships to eligible students that apply before that date
  • We've extended the final ACT score we'll be accepting for scholarships. Previously, we said February, but we'll now accept ACT scores from APRIL 2021
  • ACT scores sent directly from Counselors are now accepted as official! This means we accept ACT scores directly from ACT's website, from the counselors, OR if they're already labeled on a transcript. You can now send all transcripts and ACT scores to or myself

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.
