    Re: 2017 Enrollment Numbers ULS

    For students who attend SLU, for instance, and later want to transfer to LSU what is the policy re: credit hours? Within the ULS system member schools readily accept each other's credit hours. There may be a few courses, especially 3000 and 4000 courses, where the school the student is transferring to may not accept a course, depending on specific description. Also, to earn a diploma from a school you have to actually earn half or over half of your credits from that school.

    Else, someone could accumulate 125+ hrs at some school, enroll at Stanford or MIT, take a course or two and then apply for graduation at that prestigious school!!

    Since LSU and ULS are separate systems, is there a tighter restriction of acceptance of credit hours a student is trying to transfer in?

    The students there used to be mainly low scoring ACT and SAT types that can't qualify elsewhere. I assume it's the same now.

    I don't know what the requirements are today, but it used to be that almost every school required a student to take the last 60 hours at the school that would be issuing the diploma. As an example, if you took 70 hours (just an example) of classes elsewhere and transferred into LA Tech, you still had to take 60 hours at LA Tech to earn an undergraduate degree.

    Whisper as we walk by this number issue...

    Lot's of screwy stuff going on at all levels -

    To the point of department heads refusing numbers presented to them

    WE need to go back to focusing on QUALITY over quantity

    ...fine and dandy, but the question remains "why can't we attract QUALITY students in quantity". Einstein's definition of insanity comes to mind.

    You need active recruiters in more than just 1-2 places. We are not very visible, or visible at all in a lot of big cities where a lot of good kids fall into the community colleges etc because of cost, wait lists etc.

    If Tech would pay me what I make teaching in Frisco, I would recruit DFW full time hard as hell. I can't take a pay cut to work for the university though. The DFW job was posted earlier this summer. We had been doing a better job over here in recent years.

    SLU is where most of the people from Baton Rouge and New Orleans that can't get into LSU go.

    Nah! I was down there a few weekends ago (for a meeting) and went to the wrong side of the building, that was locked. There was a maintenance guy doing a little work, so I asked him if he had a key...he did and let me in. It was easy to get into LSU .

    Re: 2017 Enrollment Numbers ULS

    BTW, I have an answer to my question above. At one time LSU-BR was hard nosed about accepting credit hours from other schools, finding some lame excuse while such-and-such course didn't measure up and forcing students to repeat classes they already had. Eventually, among an avalanche of complaints from other schools, students (and their parents forced to pay for the same class twice), the legislature ordered that a system be developed that ALL state schools would have to adhere to....including LSU-BR. It works fairly well, I am told.
