NEW! Meningitis Inoculation Requirement

Applicants must submit a completed application package with the following items or information:

  • An application for admission.
  • A non-refundable $20.00 enrollment fee in the form of a cashier’s check or money order. ($15.00 enrollment fee for international students.)
  • Official transcripts from all previous schools including evidence of obtaining a high school diploma or evidence of successful completion of the Test of General Educational Development (GED) in the form of an official report of test scores, preferably mailed directly to the Office of Admissions from the Department of Education or the official GED Testing Center.
  • Transfer applicants must submit official transcripts from each college or university, whether or not credit was earned or is desired at SUSLA. Failure to acknowledge attendance at each school in which he or she has been enrolled is subject to dismissal from the University.
  • A former student who was not enrolled on the SUSLA campus for the preceding regular semester must file a formal application for readmission. A student who has been enrolled at another institution since enrollment at SUSLA must submit transcripts from all institutions enrolled in, regardless of whether credit was earned.
  • American College Test (ACT) or Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) scores. Applicants who have not taken the ACT battery, or if the score is not available, must take the ACT on one of the established test dates set by the SUSLA Testing Center. Contact the SUSLA Testing Center at 318-670-6450 for testing dates.
  • For students born after 1956, proof of immunization or immunity to measles, mumps and rubella must be provided to the Office of Admissions and Records prior to registration. This policy applies to all students entering SUSLA for the first time and all students returning after an absence of one semester or more. Proof of tetanus/diphtheria immunization is also required. A student may claim exemption from the immunization requirement for medical or personal reasons; however, the University will require the student to leave the campus and be excluded from class in the event of an outbreak of measles, mumps or rubella. Students claiming exemption will not be permitted back on campus or in class until the outbreak is over or until proof of adequate immunization has been submitted to the Office Admissions and Records.

A student is not officially enrolled until all steps prescribed by the Institution are completed. Registration procedures are made available to students at the beginning of each registration period and are published in the semester class bulletin. If a student fails to complete registration within a designated period, a late fee may be charged. No credit is allowed for courses taken in which the student is not officially enrolled. A student is not officially enrolled until all fees have been paid.

Records submitted become the property of the University and will not be returned. Falsification of any information when applying for admission may result in the denial of admission or dismissal from the University. Provisional admission of thirty days may be granted pending receipt of required data. The registration of any student whose admission records are still incomplete thirty days after the first day of classes may be automatically canceled with no refund of fees.
