FAQQ. How are students placed in English and Math?
A. Results of the student's ACT scores determine placement in English and Math courses.

A. The cost of attending LSUS (tuition and fees) is based upon a number of factors, such as residency status and the number of hours a student is enrolling. A full schedule of fees is found on the LSUS website at Accounting Services.
Q. How can I find out if my student is eligible for financial aid?
A. All financial aid decisions are based upon the results of the Federal Application for Free Student Aid (FAFSA). Information regarding this process is available at the LSUS Financial Aid Office. The FAFSA form is completed on-line. For more information, contact the LSUS Financial Aid Office (ADM 202, 797-5363) or visit Financial Aid online.
Q. What assistance is there for students with learning difficulties?
A. LSUS offers a variety of assistance for students with disabilities, whether a learning, physical, psychological, or sensory impairment. The student must contact the Student Development & Counseling Center's Assistant Director, who coordinates any accommodation on campus. The student will participate in a brief interview, provide documentation of the disabling condition and, if determined eligible for services, assist the Assistant Director in developing the most appropriate accommodations. For more information, contact SDCC (ADM 228, 797-5365) or visit Disability Services online.
Q. Who can give me information about my student's progress or grades?
A. Only your student can provide you with this information. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA, also known as the Buckley Amendment) is a federal law that provides guidelines for educational institutions regarding protection and release of student education record information. This law states that the right to inspect an educational record is limited solely to the student; parents have no inherent rights to inspect the educational record.
