The LSU Athletics Degree Completion program assists former scholarship LSU student-athletes with completion of their undergraduate degree. To qualify students must have:

  • Completed eligibility at LSU
  • Departed in good standing with the university as well as in good academic standing
  • Students must have at least a 2.0 GPA
  • Students should be within 30 hours or less of graduation.

This program is funded by LSU Athletics and decisions on funding are made on a case by case basis through consideration of application materials received. The degree completion program assists with provision of Tuition/Fees and Book scholarships to qualifying former scholarship student-athletes.

  1. You must apply for Admission to LSU.
  2. Complete the LSU Athletics Degree Completion application below.
  3. After being accepted for LSU Admission, you will be able to work with the Academic Center for Student-Athletes to request a University Degree Audit generated to determine the number of hours remaining to earn your undergraduate degree and devise a semester by semester plan to complete the requirements for your undergraduate degree.
  4. You will be notified of your award status upon consideration of your application, the number of hours remaining and your overall degree plan timeline.

My signature below indicates that if I am approved for funding, I acknowledge that I will be held accountable for class attendance and study hall requirements as determined by academic staff. Failure to meet all academic requirements will result in the cancellation of scholarship funding. Additionally, if I am approved for funding and drop courses, fail courses, stop attending class/academic commitments or violate any Athletics Department policy, I will lose access to future funding opportunities and will be financially responsible for the term in which the courses are dropped or failed.
