The Four-Star Promise at LSUA 

Providing a world–class education that is Within Reach is central to the mission of LSU of Alexandria. We provide multiple programs for students outside Louisiana that can help them reduce costs and take advantage of our competitive tuition. Future Generals from states bordering Louisiana can participate in our Four Star Promise! Residents from the bordering states around Louisiana (Arkansas, Mississippi, and Texas) will qualify for our current in-state tuition rate as long as they apply by May 1st!  

Within Reach, Without Limits

LSUA believes that your future success is Within Reach. Our commitment to ensuring that all students have the ability to gain an exceptional education should be Without Limits. The Four-Star Promise is one way we are living that commitment by removing the burden of Out-of-State Tuition concerns for students.




How Do I Apply for the Four-Star Promise? 


LSUA does not require a separate application to qualify for the Four Star Promise. The Out-of-State Fee Waiver will be awarded automatically based on information submitted on the student's application for admission. No applications submitted after May 1st will qualify for the Four-Star Promise. 


What if I don’t live in Louisiana or a Bordering State? 


Non-resident first-time students who have a 2.25 high school GPA and either a 21 ACT or 1030 SAT score will qualify for an Out-of-State Fee Waiver, which brings the tuition cost down to that of our Louisiana residents. 



What Additional Scholarships May Be Available? 


LSUA allows students to qualify for a wide range of scholarships. Any first-time freshman or transfer student with at least a 2.5 Cumulative GPA may be eligible for an automatic academic scholarship. Please check out our scholarship calculator to see what you may qualify for.
