Summer Courses

Are you a current LSU student looking to get a head start on your coursework? Or have you been out of school for a while and are considering returning to the university to obtain skills-based coursework or a degree?

Summer courses cover the same information and are taught by the same professors as those held during the fall and spring semesters. As a response to the continued impact of COVID-19 and to increase affordability for students taking summer classes, LSU is offering a 15 percent discount on tuition and fees for summer courses. This discount applies to in-state and out-of-state students. These discounts don't apply LSU Online fully online programs. Summer students also receive the same quality of advising and support as fall and spring students. Offered in a compressed timeframe, summer courses offer you many benefits:

  • Graduate faster and enter the professional world, thereby earning a salary sooner.
  • Take a challenging course head-on, without the usual stresses of a regular semester load.
  • Stay connected with the campus community, including faculty members who could end up becoming long-term mentors.
  • Concentrate more completely on one or two classes to raise your GPA.
  • Secure a place in a popular class that might usually have a waiting list.
  • Receive more individualized attention from faculty because of smaller classes and fewer students.
  • Enjoy the ease of learning from the comfort of home, with no traffic and no commute.
  • Catch up on earning credits if you have changed majors midway through your degree.
  • Earn additional credits toward a double major while still graduating when you planned.
  • Earn credits that might transfer elsewhere, especially if you’re only returning home to Baton Rouge for the summer.
  • Expedite your educational timeline and possibly roll over TOPS funding toward professional degree programs.
