I transferred to LSUS after graduating from a local community college, and between it's affordability, diverse faculty and degree opportunities, and great accessibility, I know that I made the right choice. All of my credits from my community college transferred over, and I'm currently on track to graduating with honors by 2020!

I am a MEDL online graduate student. As a full time teacher, step-mom of 4, and with an active duty spouse, I was worried that graduate school would not fit my life style. My dream of becoming a principal was far out of reach in my mind a few months ago. Even with an already busy life, the MEDL program has only enhanced my life and job. Can you tell I am excited to finish the program and step into a leadership role? Louisiana State University at Shreveport’s online graduate MEDL program is convienet, rigorous, and relatable to my field. My assignments force me to see through the eyes of an administrator and collaborate with active leaders. What’s great is that the professors are experts who have walked the walk and can talk the talk. The education department will not steer you in the wrong direction to be a leader.
So far the faculty has been very helpful and offered full support for applying, registering, and answering all questions. I have really enjoyed my experience and the classes are very valuable and easy to follow along with! I am very excited to continue my education here and get my MBA
