     HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University has announced new deadlines for applying for admission.

     Earlier final application deadlines for summer, spring and fall terms have been established, said Sam Domiano, director of new student enrollment. No applications will be accepted after the final deadlines of June 1 for the summer semester; Aug. 1 for the fall semester; and Dec. 15 for the spring semester.

     “An earlier final application deadline allows us to communicate with new applicants sooner,” Domiano said. “As a result, students will receive earlier admissions decisions.”

     “We strongly encourage students to apply now, as it may also save them money,” Domiano said. “Students who apply by May 1 for summer, July 15 for fall and Dec. 1 for spring will pay only a $20 application fee. Students who apply after these dates will pay a $70 fee.”

     Domiano said applicants who apply and are admitted to the university are also invited to the earlier orientation programs, which are required for all beginning freshmen and transfer students with less than 30 hours. “Since the orientation program includes academic advising and class scheduling, students who attend the early sessions get first pick when it comes to class selection,” he said.

     Students can apply for admission online at For additional information, contact the Office of Admissions at 985-549-5637, 1-800-222-SELU or
