Each semester the total number of credits attempted and earned will be evaluated, including remedial coursework. All prior LSSU credits will be used to determine if the student has earned at least 67% of their total credits attempted. For example, if a student attempts 16 credits for fall and 16 credits for spring semester, the student must earn 22 credits to meet the 67% completion requirement. (16 + 16 = 32 x 67% = 21.44 credits or 22.)

NOTE: Transfer credits that have been evaluated and accepted for credit at LSSU will be added to both the credits attempted and earned cumulative totals, however, transfer students must also earn 67% of their LSSU credits each semester to maintain good standing. Consortium students must earn 67% of the total consortium credits each semester (credits at both LSSU & the community college) to maintain good standing at LSSU.
