Dual Enrollment

LSUA offers qualified high school students the ability to take college courses that apply toward a college degree and high school credit at the same time! Students work directly with their high school counselor to determine which Dual Enrollment courses to choose. These courses can be taken on the campus of LSUA, online, or at participating high schools.


All courses taken through Dual Enrollment are college courses and are placed on the student's college transcript.
