Lee Hall Support Oces
Lee Hall, conveniently located in the UL Lafayette Quad, is a campus
building completely devoted to student support services. If Lee Hall
does not oer the services your student needs, the sta here knows
exactly where to send them. Lee Hall is a very important location that
your student should be familiar with throughout their time at UL. Lee
Hall is located in sections C6, D6 on the University’s campus map.
Oce of First-Year Experience
OFYE is the one oce on campus that is solely dedicated to assisting
the University’s freshman class. We direct the transition into UL with
UNIV 100, a three credit-hour course designed to help rst-year UL
students successfully transition from high school to University life
and academic work.
UNIV 100 course components:
1. Cajun Connection: a one-day, extended introduction to UL, the
campus community, and University-level work.
2. First-Year Seminar: een weeks during a scheduled class time
OFYE will be hosting Freshman Week from August 18-25 to help make
your student’s rst week on campus fun, educational, and welcoming.
Freshman Week events include movie nights, informational sessions,
mixers, and more! In the Spring, OFYE puts on the Freshman Finale to
help your student celebrate the end of a successful rst year at UL.
OFYE also houses The Big Event, a community service organization
that has organized over 12,500 student volunteers to help the
Lafayette community since its creation in 2013.

Academic Success Center:
The Academic Success Center (ASC) is the leading resource on campus for students who
need help performing up to the academic standards in the college classroom. To aid students
academically, ASC oers free tutoring through The Learning Center, located on the second oor of
Lee Hall. The Learning Center strives to ensure that all students succeed academically by oering
individual tutoring, study groups, online tutoring, and supplemental instruction.
Beyond free tutoring, the Academic Success Center also oers a number of administrative services
to students. If your student gets to UL Lafayette and decides to change their major, or wants to talk
through the option of doing so, counselors are readily available. If a student decides to drop a class
with a “W”, the ASC is the rst place that they should visit.
The ASC also oers recurring workshops for students throughout the semester. A multitude of
Success Workshops are provided for students adjusting to the academic and social systems of
college life.
If your student is struggling . . .
Please encourage them to visit Lee Hall to get the support and
assistance needed to thrive academically and socially here at UL
Lafayette.

Documentation of Credit at Orientation
Ocial reports or transcripts of any credit earned from another institution must be submitted to
UL in order to have the credits transferred. Please keep in mind that processing of credit can take
time. Sometimes, a student’s credit from another institution is still being processed by the time
they attend Orientation, so the credit is not yet reected on their UL transcript. To ensure that
your student has an accurate academic advising session, please remind them to bring printed,
unocial copies of their transcripts to Orientation.
College, AP, & CLEP Credit
Dual Enrollment Credit cannot be awarded based on a high school transcript. Students must
submit an ocial college transcript to receive university credit. College transcripts can be sent to
etranscripts@louisiana.edu or can be mailed to the UL Lafayette Oce of Admissions at P.O. Box
41210 Lafayette, LA 70504.
AP & CLEP Credit must be provided by the organization itself, not students or parents. Visit those
respective websites to request that the credits be sent to UL Lafayette.
For more information about transfer credits, click here or contact our transfer coordinator at
transfer@louisiana.edu with questions.
Advance Credit Exams
Students who meet certain eligibility requirements have the opportunity to take Advance Credit
Exams to attempt to earn credit for UL Lafayette courses. To view a list of the exams oered, click
here.
Math Placement, Credit, and Testing
Every degree program at the University requires a minimum of 6 credit hours of math. To
