Program Details

Louisiana State University and Agricultural & Medical College offers a Certificate of Liberal Studies providing students the opportunity to further their professional objectives. This program consists of 15 credit hours that can be finished in a minimum of one semester. Students will complete four required courses and one elective course. All courses are available online through LSU’s distance learning program; this allows students to have a flexible experience while working towards their degree.

Admission into the program requires a non-refundable $25.00 fee. Applications can be filled out online or by mail. Students who enroll in must complete the requirements within a four-year time period. Students who wish to transfer credits may only transfer one 3-credit hour course from another university. However, credits transferred from LSU’s Evening School or Extension Credit programs do not fall under this 3-credit hour limit. An official transcript must be sent to the university in order for credits to transfer and students must have earned at least a “C” on these courses

The Certificate of Liberal Studies will only be awarded to students who earn at least a “C” in each of the five required courses. When students have completed the program they must send a notice of completion to LSU IDL and pay a $10 completion fee when the certificate is awarded.
