LSU Pre-College On-Campus Courses

Registration is now open for Summer 2022.

LSU Pre-College On-Campus Courses are 1-week and 2-week programs designed to offer a taste of the college experience for rising 6th-12th grade students. Participants will explore a topic of their interest while expanding their knowledge in their chosen discipline and experiencing collegiate life on LSU’s campus.

LSU Pre-College is committed to providing a safe and socially distanced learning environment for all of our students this summer. While following all health and safety guidelines at the university, state, and federal levels, we’ll be taking additional precautions to maximize student safety.

  • Face Coverings: All students and staff will be required to wear face coverings for the entirety of the program, and this rule will be strictly enforced by our camp staff. Students will be provided with an LSU-branded face covering at the beginning of the program.
  • Physical Distancing: All efforts will be made to ensure 6 feet of distance between students whenever possible. Class sizes will be limited and classrooms will be rearranged to maximize distancing.
  • Daily Symptom Checker and Temperature Checks: Students and staff will be required to complete a symptom checker each day and present their results before class. They will also undergo a temperature check upon arrival to campus, and only those with a temperature of under 100°F will be allowed on campus.
  • Hand Sanitizing: Frequent hand washing will be encouraged throughout the program, and hand sanitizer will be available in all classroom spaces.
  • Cough/Sneeze Etiquette: Students will be taught proper cough and sneeze etiquette at the beginning of the program and encouraged to cough or sneeze into a tissue or the inside of their elbow to minimize the spread of germs.
  • Sanitation of Classroom Spaces: Intensified cleaning of all campus spaces is already underway according to CDC guidelines, and will continue to be implemented throughout the program. All classrooms will be cleaned at least once per day, including doorknobs, light switches, chairs, and desks.
  • Isolation Pledge: Before coming to campus, students will pledge to self-isolate for one week prior to the start of their program.

With these policies in place, we hope to minimize transmission and spread of COVID-19 during the program. For more in-depth information about our COVID-19 policies, please visit our Policies page.

My experience at LSU Pre-College provided me with new knowledge and skills that I can apply in the future. I felt that I was in a class of like-minded peers aiming to achieve the same goal.
