Admissions

Find your passion.
Feel your success.

Imagine a place where welcome is in the air, invention is a way of life, red is everywhere you look, and ragin’ is what you want to be. That’s UL, that's Lafayette, and we’re pleased that you’re applying for admission. Every year, we welcome more than 6,000 undergraduates: freshmen, transfers, students returning after a break, and international students.

We invite you to explore the University and sample the ragin’ spirit that drives our community, informs our work, and enhances our play. 

You’ll see that spirit in our collaborative classrooms. And recognize it in our basic and applied research, our efforts to improve the survival of coastal communities, the health of fisheries in the Gulf, the literacy of low-income children.

Just take a look at our nationally recognized nursing program, our rigorous honors program, our new online options, our fast-moving campus renewal. You’ll see that a research university really can address large-scale issues with passion and ingenuity—and still nurture individual students with inventive, attentive teaching.

Maybe the best discovery: our value. We’re committed to providing a high quality education at a reasonable cost, which means you’ll graduate with good preparation and lower debt. When we say bienvenue (welcome), we mean welcome to your future.
