What is BPCC at LSUS?

LSU Shreveport and Bossier Parish Community College have joined together to create the BPCC at LSUS program. This partnership creates a convenient option for students wishing to pursue a 4-year degree at LSUS. Students who do not meet the admission requirements for LSUS may begin their college studies as a student in the BPCC at LSUS program. Courses are taught by BPCC instructors on the LSUS campus.

Students will pay BPCC tuition and LSUS fees which enables them to use LSUS campus facilities, to park on campus, and to enjoy all athletic and cultural/student life events by showing their LSUS student ID card. Students are also eligible to apply for financial aid (BPCC code: 012033) and to live in university housing.

Students will take developmental English and math, college level English and math, and 12 hours of general education courses. The student must achieve at least a 2.00 GPA (excluding developmental grades) and then may choose from several options:

  • continue their education at LSUS as a transfer student,
  • continue their education at BPCC in Bossier City, or
  • continue their education at another community college or 4-year institution.

Additionally, transfer students, current BPCC students, and current LSUS students may take courses offered by the BPCC at LSUS program.
