Incarcerated students may enroll Louisiana State University’s print-based courses and can request the printed-version of most web-enabled courses. Because they are not semester-based, enrollment is possible at any time of the year. Students will work independently within a nine-month enrollment period to submit lessons and complete exams.  Due to certain policies, the fastest a course can be completed is in 9-12 weeks.
Louisiana State University offers a variety of credit courses in Spanish, Sociology, Political Science, Mathematics, Marketing, Library & Information Science, Geography, English, Education, Communication & Biology in addition to their non-credit based courses.
