Louisiana State University of Alexandria posted another record year for recruitment. The institution implemented a new recruitment and financial aid model in 2013 and the results have been transformational. The outcomes for Fall 2016 are extraordinary:

  • LSUA enrolled the largest number of students in history.
  • Total student enrollments have increased by nearly 47% since 2013.
  • The 529 new freshmen represent the largest number in history.
  • On-line enrollment has increased by 64% in just the last year.
  • The University enrolled a record number of students in its Honors Program.
  • The University enrolled a record number of students participating in dual enrollment.
  • The number of international students grew by 20% in the last year.

This exceptional growth has occurred while state funding for higher education has dropped 39% since 2008.
