Southeastern Important Information
Here are some major updates from Southeastern regarding the upcoming Summer and Fall semesters:
During the month of April, the application fee is waived for students applying for the Summer 2020 or Fall 2020 semester. An application fee is not required for any student submitting an application. So if you have a senior who has not applied yet, now is the time to do so! After April, the application fee will be required again. If a student needs help applying, here is our How to Apply Video on YouTube that is step by step.
We are now using UNOFFICIAL ACT SCORES if you or your students do not have access to the official score report during this time. We are able to use the scores on the high school transcript as long as it is sent from the counselor. Students can also submit the unofficial scores from the ACT website. We will eventually need the official scores but we can use the unofficial to make an admissions decision for right now.
Our admissions staff has been creating live content for students through social media. We are doing Facebook Live sessions as well as Instagram Q&As throughout the weeks. Please share our Live website with your students! We house our previous videos here as well as dates for our upcoming ones. We even have a virtual tour!
Lastly, you and your students can always contact me on my cell phone, but we now have created Zoom Meetings where we can meet face-to-face but virtually. Here is my meeting link in case you or your student would like to meet: Meeting with Allyson.
While there is no substitute for experiencing LSU in-person, we are hopeful students will use the following resources to experience LSU's campus from home:
These resources allow students and their families to interact with us in ways that will enable them to make reliable decisions about attending LSU. Here, they can get face-time with a member of the admissions committee, hear from current students, and make connections with future LSU classmates all according to their schedule.
