List of 9 items.

  • College Credit Approval

    A student who wants to apply the credit from a college course toward their Louisiana School graduation requirements, or toward meeting prerequisites for a Louisiana School course, must obtain approval on the College Credit Approval Form prior to enrolling in the college course. After entering LSMSA, transferred credit will be limited to courses taken at a college or university in which a grade of B or better has been earned. This is true for a course taken at the student's initiative and for one being repeated as required by the school when a course has been failed.

  • Driver’s License/Learner’s Permit

    Effective 10/2021, Louisiana now requires a parent/guardian to attest to compliance of school attendance for minors applying for a drivers license or identification card.  

    A certification form from the school is no longer required.

    If you are obtaining a license in a state other than Louisiana, it is your responsibility to provide the appropriate state-approved form to the LSMSA Registrar for completion.
  • Employment Certificate for Minors

    Louisiana law requires that individuals under the age of 18 submit an a state-issued Employment Certificate to their potential employers.  LSMSA is not authorized to issue employment certificates but can assist with providing enrollment verification documents.

    4. Withdrawal from LSMSA

      The withdrawal process begins in the Registrar’s Office.  Parents/guardians whose student(s) are withdrawing should meet with the Registrar during business hours (Monday-Friday 8:30-4:30) to complete the required forms.   The withdrawal form must be completed by parent/guardian before leaving the campus. Signatures verifying clearance with teachers, residence hall staff, Budget Office, and Director of Academic Affairs are required on the form.  Parents/guardians are encouraged to notify the Registrar as soon as they know their child will be withdrawing to allow sufficient time for withdrawal forms to be prepared.

      Under exceptional circumstances, families may need to move their student out of the residence hall on weekends or after hours.  In these rare cases, the Registrar will email withdrawal forms to the parent/guardian to be completed and returned to LSMSA within two business days after the student leaves campus.
