Students Located Outside of Louisiana

1. United States Residents

U.S. Citizen

Online programs may not be available to all applicants.  The University of Louisiana at Lafayette must be in compliance prior to offering online courses or programs to students located outside of Louisiana.  Find out more about state authorization.

Non-U.S. Citizen

International students also may not be eligible. According to U.S. immigration regulations, F-1 students cannot pursue online degrees; international students in other visa categories (i.e., H-4, L2) are exempt from this restriction.

2. International Residents

UL Lafayette strives to monitor issues related to international authorization. However, it is the responsibility of the student to ensure that a degree awarded by UL Lafayette will be recognized by a foreign country where the student intends to work.

Not all countries or professions accept degrees obtained through distance education as sufficient for educational experience. It is crucial that you contact your country's education department and appropriate professional licensing bodies before enrolling with UL Lafayette in order to determine whether an online degree at this institution is right for you.

In addition, all international students seeking admission to UL Lafayette will have to demonstrate proficiency in English by taking the TOEFL exam (minimum scores are dependent on the degree program which you select). Learn more about undergraduate admissions.
