Transfer Student Checklist
- Complete and submit an Application for Undergraduate Admission with application fee ($20.00).
- Submit official transcript from all colleges,universities, and vocational schools previously attended whether or not credit was earned. Transcripts can be mailed directly to LSUS Admissions and Records Office or sent electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org via secure means, i.e., eSCRIP-SAFE, Parchment, etc. If you are currently enrolled at another college or university when you apply for admission, submit a current official transcript now, and then submit a final official transcript at the conclusion of the term. Hand-carried transcripts may be accepted if they are in the original, sealed, unopened envelope, and only if the transcript is current, i.e., processed after your last date of attendance at the college or university. Unofficial transcripts may be used for conditional admission. Full admission will not be granted until final transcripts have been received and evaluated. Failure to submit final transcripts by the end of your first enrolled semester will prevent registration for future semesters.
- If you have earned less than 18 non-developmental semester hours, you must submit your official high school transcript to the LSUS Admissions and Records Office.
- ACT or SAT scores may be requested by the Admissions Office and used to determine placement in college level English or Mathematics.
- Provide proof of immunization as defined in the Immunization Policy or sign a waiver.
- If you are an active member of the armed forces or a dependent, submit a Military Residency Form.
- Contact your academic advisor for advisement. Transfer students who are admitted and have been advised may register 2 weeks after currently enrolled LSUS students register.
