Frequently Asked Questions


Who is eligible to apply to attend the LSUE Academy?
Students in 10th and 11th grade who are in good academic standing may apply to the academy in the Spring semester of the current school year to begin classes the Fall semester of the subsequent year. 

What if I did not take the ACT (or PreACT) test or my scores in both subject areas do not meet the minimum requirements?
You may contact the Director of the Academy at 337-457-6130 to schedule a time and date to take a placement test at LSUE. 

How do I know whether or not I was accepted into the academy?
Students who apply will receive a letter in the mail stating whether or not they are accepted into the academy.  The letter of acceptance from the Admissions Office will contain your myLSUE ID number and Password. Log onto myLSUE and set up your email so you may receive correspondence from the school. 

How do I schedule my classes for the Fall semester if I am accepted?
The academy director (your advisor) and counselor will meet with you to schedule your classes for the Fall semester. 

Where do I find the FAFSA and when should I complete it?
The FAFSA should be submitted on-line at www.fafsa.gov . This application should be completed by the last day that applications are being accepted for academy enrollment. 

How do I apply for financial aid and what is the FAFSA?
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the application for all federal and state aid programs. You will need to indicate Louisiana State University Eunice (school code #002012) in the school release section of the application so that we may receive your file. In most cases, you and your parents will need to complete the application.

What programs am I actually applying for?
Since you are still in high school, your acceptance into the LSUE academy allows you to apply only for Federal Pell Grants. 

Is there a deadline for applying?
You may apply for financial aid any time after October 1 to use for the upcoming fall, spring, and summer semesters. This application should be completed by the last day that applications are being accepted for academy enrollment; otherwise, you may be responsible for payment of your fees.

Do I need to apply for financial aid each year?
Yes. Each year you must file the FAFSA for the appropriate award year. You must also maintain Standards of Academic Progress (SAP) in order to qualify for aid each year.

If I drop a class will it affect my financial aid?
Any change in enrollment status may potentially affect the amount of aid a student is eligible to receive depending on the time frame in which the change is made. Standards of Academic Progress (SAP) must also be taken into consideration any time you consider changes to academic enrollment.
