Departments and Services:
The Southern University at Shreveport Dual Enrollment Program allows high school students the opportunity to enroll in and receive both high school and college credit during normal class hours at their high school. Participation in the dual credit program enables high school students to get a "head start" on their college career, as well as prepare them for the challenges of college courses. Credits earned under these programs will be applicable toward a degree at Southern University at Shreveport, and are generally transferable to other colleges and universities. However, because each university or college has its own curriculum, Southern University at Shreveport cannot guarantee transferability.

The International Student Advisor serves as liaison and ombudsman between the university and international students, federal government, public and private agencies, and the community.
