Pathways to Success Requirements


Meeting with one's academic advisor at least one time per semester is required of all Pathways students.

Class Attendance

Attendance is mandatory for all class meetings. There is no such thing as an "excused absence" in any Pathways course. Students absent for more than one week of classes will automatically fail the course. Students are, at most, permitted to miss:

  • three (3) classes in a regular semester for a course that meets three times a week (MWF classes),
  • two (2) classes in a regular semester for a course that meets two times a week (TR classes), 
  • one (1) class in a regular semester for a class that meets once a week, or
  • two (2) classes for a summer course that meets three, four, or five times a week.

Students who miss more than the number of days indicated above will automatically fail the course.  As a result, student are encouraged to schedule doctor's visits and other personal business when they are not schedule to be in class.

LSU Eunice defines attendance as the student being present in the assigned classroom each class period from the time the class is scheduled to begin until the class is scheduled to end. Students who come in after the scheduled starting time or leave before the scheduled ending time can, at the discretion of the instructor, be counted as absent. Please note that makeup work is assigned at the discretion of the instructor. It is the prerogative of the instructor to allow no make up work.


Students who receive a grade below 70% or C- on a major assignment in either English or mathematics will be required to participate in at least two (2) hours of tutoring in the Tutoring Center.  Please note that the Tutoring Center is available to all Pathways student at any time, regardless of in-class performance, so Pathways students are encouraged to take advantage of the services early in the semester.
