Admission to the University

The University of Louisiana at Lafayette seeks to admit students whose intellectual and creative ability, past academic performance, and motivation signal their aptitude to succeed in higher education. Admissions criteria include previous academic preparation and performance, as well as ACT or SAT scores. Students who do not fully meet the University’s admissions criteria but who believe that they are prepared to succeed at UL Lafayette are invited to apply for admission through Admission by Committee. The University serves a diverse student population and welcomes applications from all interested students, without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability or marital status. Students who seek to enroll in the University as undergraduates may apply in one of the four basic admissions categories: 1) first-time freshman student; 2) transfer student; 3) international student; and 4) re-entry student.
