To receive assistance from the student aid programs, students must:
Students who transfer to Southern University at Shreveport from any other college/university or vocation/technical schools must take the necessary steps to ensure that they will be eligible for financial aid as it does not automatically transfer with them.
Official academic and financial aid transcripts from all schools previously attended must be submitted. As soon as possible, transfer applicants should contact the Financial Aid Office to find out what steps should be taken to ensure receipt of aid at Southern University at Shreveport
A new law implemented on July 1, 2000 suspends aid eligibility for students convicted under federal or state law of sale or possession of drugs. If you have been convicted of drug possession, you will be ineligible for one year from the date of a first conviction, two years after a second conviction and indefinitely after a third conviction. If you have been convicted for selling drugs, you will be ineligible for two years from the date of a first conviction and indefinitely after a second conviction. If you lose eligibility, you can regain eligibility early by successfully completing an acceptable drug rehabilitation program.
