Dates for registration are listed on the school’s academic calendar. Late registration is permitted only under unusual circumstances.
The general courseload for fulltime students is nine to fifteen-credit hours. Permission to exceed fifteen-credit hours must be granted by the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs.
All students are required to comply with the Health Sciences Center student health requirements. Upon acceptance, the Office of Admissions and Student Affairs gives each individual the LSUHSC Student Health Services Form on which health and immunization are documented. Each student submits the completed form to the Health Sciences Center Student Health Clinic before classes begin.
Students who wish to resume studies after an absence of more than one semester from the School of Public Health may be required to submit an application for re-admission at least ten days before registration.
Supplementary transcripts must be submitted if any work has been taken at another institution during the interim. Exceptions to this requirement must be by successful petition to the Dean.
Multi-campus Registration Procedures
Students enrolled full-time in the LSU System may cross-enroll.
At least two weeks prior to registration, students must submit to the School of Public Health Office of Admissions and Student Affairs documentation that fees have been paid at the home campus; the Schedule of Courses Form (for adding/dropping courses); and the LSU System Multi-Campus Registration form.
Courses may be audited only with the written permission of the Course Director. The same fees will be charged for audited courses as for those courses taken for credit. The student must note the intention to audit on the Schedule of Courses Form.
