TOPS Awards

Many Louisiana students are eligible for TOPS awards from the State. TOPS-the Taylor Opportunity Program for Students-provides tuition assistance and, in some cases, cash stipends, for students who meet certain eligibility requirements. TOPS eligibility is based on ACT scores, high school GPA, and a specified number of units in high school course work. Students can obtain additional information about TOPS from the program’s web site, Students wishing to qualify for TOPS must file a FAFSA form, as explained in more detail in the section below, titled “Financial Aid .” The TOPS program is administered by the State, not the University; therefore, questions about the program and a student’s individual award should be directed to the State’s Office of Student Financial Assistance, LOSFA, 800-259-5626.
