With the growing demand for workers skilled in areas outside of their degree, continuing your education is a necessity in today’s professional environment. Whether you are looking to advance in your career or change career paths, we are here to help you figure out how to gain the skills and certifications you need affordably and efficiently.
Through Your Employer
As more professions require a wider range of skills, companies need employees equipped with those skills. LSU partners with a variety of employers who offer tuition reimbursement for eligible employees.
Contact your employer directly to confirm your eligibility, or take a look at our list of partnerships to see if your employer is one of our partners. Many employers have full or partial tuition reimbursement—your education may cost far less than you think!
Continuing Education Loan
Continuing Education programs are less expensive than traditional degrees. Many professionals are able to leverage employer-pay or self-pay options. However, for some of our more intensive certificates and MicroCreds, you can apply for a continuing education loan through a variety of banking institutions; many of our students partner with Campus Federal Credit Union. Please note the Campus Federal CE Loan cannot be used toward college credit-bearing courses.
Pay Your Own Way
LSU is a non-profit institution, and our programs are highly affordable. Many students are able to utilize our direct payment options for our Continuing Education programs, as you only pay when you enroll your course.
Credit Cards: We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express. Credit card payment is required for Web, phone, or fax registrations.
Purchase Orders: Full payment, or an authorized purchase order for billing, is due at the time of registration.
Returned check: If your bank voids a payment for insufficient funds, a returned check charge of $25 will be added to your registration fee.
