Admissions and Recruitment

The Office of Admissions and Recruitment embraces the University's mission of excellence in education, community service, and cultural diversity. This office is dedicated to recruiting and admitting a diverse population of students into the University, ensuring exceptional student service and administrative assistance during the application process while adhering to all University policies and procedures.  Southern University at Shreveport offers courses on a two-semester plan - fall and spring - with special sessions offered during the summer.

Prospective students interested in any of our programs are encouraged to complete our interest form so that we can match educational goals with the appropriate department and services at SUSLA.

To "Become Southern" an admission application and all required documents must be received before the designated deadlines in order for the applicant to receive priority processing and be notified of acceptance.

Application priority deadlines for admission.  We strive to process admission applications within 7-10 business days after receipt of all required admission documents.  To meet this goal, the following admission application deadlines are in place to ensure priority processing:
