Welcome, counselors, to LSSU! We created this admissions hub webpage just for you. It compiles everything you need to know to help share LSSU’s superior story with your students while navigating the college admissions process.

Learn about our signature programs. Follow the money about our many scholarships and affordable tuition. Discover our several certificate programs. Take Laker pride in our many firsts, such as launching the first four-year fire science program and the first cannabis chemistry program in the nation. And meet Seamore, our mascot—and see more about what makes LSSU an unsurpassed location for research, innovation, and real-world experiences.

What’s new for 2020-2021?

  • Students may apply with the Common Application (commonapp.org)
  • LSSU is test-optional, meaning SAT/ACT scores are not required for an admissions decision.
  • Students may self-report their high school GPA on the application. Official transcripts are required prior to enrollment.
  • LSSU has launched a new conditional admit program for students who do not meet the minimum GPA to be accepted to LSSU but feel ready to pursue their educational endeavors with support from success coaches and enhanced advising. These students will have additional mentoring opportunities and campus resources to help them build skills to undertake their academic journeys.
