  • College Transcripts: Transfer students must have each collegiate institution attended send an official transcript directly to the Office of Admissions at P.O. Box 41210, Lafayette LA 70504-1210 or If you are currently attending a University, we encourage a partial record to determine initial eligibility. A final official transcript will also need to be submitted upon completion of any classes currently attending. Please send the Request for Transcript of Credits Form to each institution when requesting transcripts to be sent to UL Lafayette.
  • High School Transcripts: If you have less than 24 hours completed, you need to include a high school transcript and ACT or SAT scores.

Step 3. After Admissions.

  • Wait for notification from Admissions stating your admission status.

  • When you contact your advisor, ask if you need to bring a copy of your transcript to the appointment. Some advisors do not have immediate access to Admissions records.
