Extremely Urgent Reminders for LA College Admissions

Reminder to all parents and graduates of the class of 2016 and beyond that all students MUST obtain at least an 18 in English AND at least a 19 in Math on their ACT for guaranteed admission to four-year colleges/universities in Louisiana beginning Fall 2014. If your student struggles in either of these areas, have them talk to their grade level counselor for some ideas for improvement and/or tutoring opportunities. Students MUST have the ACT sub-scores mentioned above to be admitted to UL Lafayette and LSU. Additionally, many LA colleges and universities require a minimum of a 2.5 CORE GPA. LSU requires a 3.0 CORE and a 22 ACT composite, as well as the sub-scores mentioned above. Remember, a CORE GPA is NOT a cumulative GPA. This GPA does NOT include certain electives, P.E. courses, and religion courses. Go to the college’s website for their list of CORE courses. Once a student reaches their senior year, it is usually TOO late (depending on the specific grades) to try to bring up a low GPA for college and for TOPS. Colleges and universities evaluate a student’s six semester GPA (freshman through junior year final grades). Please remind your student of these requirements, and how they can work this year to increase their GPA’s so they do not have added stress their senior year. The Counseling Center will continue to remind them as well! You are sent a TOPS CORE GPA in the mail in August of each year.

**Colleges can change their requirements throughout the year so please visit their websites frequently. Go to http://regents.state.la.us/ for information on ALL public colleges and universities admissions policies in Louisiana.
