Non-degree seeking undergraduate applicants should refer to the Undergraduate Admission to the University section of this catalog  for application and admission process information related to their program of interest.

Application documents may be sent to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions by e-mail (admissions@louisiana.edu), mail (P. O. Box 41210, Lafayette, LA 70504) or fax (337-482-1317).  For the initial admissions review process, unofficial transcripts and test score reports may be utilized (except for RN to BSN applicants); however, if admission is granted, applicants must provide official, final transcripts and official test score reports to finalize any admissions decision. To be considered official, transcripts must be sent directly from the previous institution to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, and test scores must be sent directly from the test provider to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.

Applicants are typically notified of application decisions by e-mail and mail.  Questions regarding application status should be directed to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at (337) 482-6473 or admissions@louisiana.edu.
