LSU Shreveport has smashed its previous enrollment record, recording a final spring 2024 enrollment of 10,214. This marks an enrollment increase of nearly 1,500 students over spring 2023, a 17 percent jump.

LSUS’s growth comes at a time when many universities in the state and across the nation are navigating enrollment and financial headwinds.

“Students are looking for the programs we have,” said LSUS Chancellor Dr. Robert Smith. “Many universities across the nation are dropping programs that students aren’t taking anymore, but we have a great mix of programs that meet student demand and workforce needs."
