Released: 05/25/2000

Louisiana State University at Alexandria (LSUA) offers the Early Start Program to give high school graduates the opportunity to experience college life and receive advance standing credit in University Studies (USTY) 1001 at LSUA.

To participate, high school graduates must complete an enrollment form, provide proof of graduation and pay the $25 participation fee. If the student has already paid the $20 application fee to attend LSUA, the cost is only $5.

The two sessions available are June 19-23 from 12 p.m. until 4 p.m. or July 10-14 from 12 p.m. until 4 p.m.

<p> Besides earning college credit, participants will learn study skills needed for the transition to college, explore career development, go through the admissions process and talk with a faculty advisor to schedule classes for the fall semester.
