     HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University students may register now for the classes they want to take this summer and fall.

     Open registration is underway for summer 2009 classes until June 2 and for fall 2009 classes until Friday, Aug. 14.

     “It is open to all students who are eligible to return to the university,” said Stephen Soutullo, assistant vice president for enrollment management. “Continuing students who pre-registered for classes may alter their schedules, and current students, continuing students, and new upperclass and graduate students who have not yet registered may do so, as long as all registration holds have been removed.

     “We always remind students that it is important for them to finalize their schedules as soon as possible,” Soutullo added.

     Students may check the schedule of classes and register online by logging into their LEOnet account from Southeastern’s webpage,  Students in departments that require advising must be advised prior to registering.

     Summer classes begin June 3, while the first day of the fall semester is Aug. 19.

     Students who have not yet applied for admission to Southeastern may do so until June 1 for the summer and August 1 for fall.

     “We strongly encourage students to apply now,” Soutullo said, “as it may also save them some money.” 

     Students who apply for admission for the summer term by May 1 and fall semester by July 15 pay a $20 application fee. Those who apply after these dates will pay $70 ($20 application fee, plus a $50 late fee).

     Soutullo said applicants who apply early and are admitted to the university are also invited to the earlier orientation programs, which are required of 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
