SU College Connect Program Overview

SU College Connect offers developmental and beginning college-level courses to new first-time freshmen who do not meet the admission requirements to gain acceptance into Southern University at Baton Rouge (SUBR) or Southern University at New Orleans (SUNO). Students may be referred for consideration to enroll in the SU College Connect Program.

Such students will be allowed to enroll in the program through SUSLA and attend classes offered on the SUBR or SUNO campuses. SUSLA is the “HOME” campus, and the four-year institution is the “HOST” institution. When a student has completed, a minimum of, 15 transferable hours of college-level work (including college-level English and Math) and attained an overall grade point average of at least 2.0, he or she is eligible to transfer to SUBR or SUNO. The transfer process is a seamless and collaborative effort between SUSLA and the four-year institution.

Participation in the SU College Connect Program prepares this population of students to ultimately enroll as a SUBR or SUNO student. Participants will have access to all university resources and activities on the SUBR or SUNO campuses and may opt to also reside in campus housing provided by the host campus. For those who do not wish to transfer, he or she can also attain an Associate Degree with SUSLA. Those degrees include the General Studies (AGS), the Louisiana Transfer (AALT), or the Louisiana Transfer (ASLT).

The SU College Connect program is designed with new, first-time freshmen in mind, transfer students will be considered for participation on a case-by-case basis. After a review of the college transcript(s), the Director of Admissions and the Coordinator of Connect Programs will decide if the transfer student is eligible for the program.
