LSUA OFFERING FOREIGN LANGUAGE TO ASSIST "TOPS" STUDENTS

Released: 07/01/1998

<p> Louisiana State University at Alexandria is offering a 4-week summer session course to assist 1997 and 1998 high school graduates in meeting eligibility requirements for the state&acute;s new Tuition Opportunity Program for Students (TOPS). Spanish 1001 will be offered from 8 a.m. until 12:20 p.m. daily beginning on July 9 and continuing through July 31. The class will meet on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. </p><p> Students applying to the state for TOPS awards must have completed a core curriculum that includes foreign language. Because many high school curricula do not include foreign language, the units required for TOPS eligibility may be earned at the college level. </p><p> Individuals interested in registering for Spanish 1001 at LSUA this summer should contact the Admissions Office at 473-6416 or 888-473-6417 as soon as possible. The office may also be contacted at www.lsua.edu. </p><p> For more information concerning the TOPS program, contact the Louisiana Office of Financial Assistance at 504-922-1012 or 800-259-5626 ext. 1012. </p>
