All academic buildings, the library, and the Health & Physical Education building are closed. The University Center Student Computing Lab is open.

Is the Food Pantry open?

Yes, the Food Pantry is open from 12 pm - 4 pm on Mondays and Thursdays. 

What about my classes this semester?

All Spring classes will continue using online remote learning. The professor for each course is responsible for how the delivery of that content will be managed. We have encouraged our faculty to utilize our current Moodle platform to deliver content. If you have specific course questions please contact your professor via email.

What is the last day I can withdraw from classes?

The last day to withdraw or resign for the 16-week semester has been moved to Monday, April 6th.

How do I reach my professor?

Contact your professor using email or the message function in Moodle. Faculty will NOT be on campus.

Will this change to remote learning affect my financial aid?

No, completed courses will post to your transcript, just as if no crisis has occurred. For specific questions contact financial aid.

Will there be a delay in awarding scholarships?

For now, we don't foresee any complications related to scholarships. There is the slight possibility of a delay in awarding if the scholarship committees feel they need more time to review and award during this unusual time. Our current plan is to have award emails going out beginning April 1.

What about my labs/observation hours/etc.?

Your professor will be guiding you as to how they plan to finish the semester. Please be assured faculty will work with you to complete the requirements during this unusual situation. Check Moodle and your campus email.

What about Spring graduation?

Students will “graduate” on Sunday, May 17, 2020 and should receive diplomas in the mail by the end of the month following the graduation date. The actual Spring 2020 graduation ceremony has been canceled. All graduating Spring students will be given the opportunity to participate in Summer graduation ceremonies in August 2020.

 

Our current plans call for degrees to be posted on transcripts, and diplomas to be sent on schedule.  If you have concerns, please contact your Departmental Chair or your Graduate Program Director.

What about the Summer & Fall Semesters?

The course listings for the Summer and Fall semesters will be posted as usual to MyLSUS. We do not anticipate any disruption to the upcoming semesters.

How will Academic Advising work?

Your academic advisor will conduct your advising sessions via email or by phone. Please email them to begin the process. If you are unsure of who your advisor is, please email the Chair of your department.
