LSU announces make-up days


Sorry, LSU students, payback is coming for those two days off around the National Championship.

Make-up dates have been announced and the the Office of the University Registrar released this message regarding the news school days:

Due to classes being cancelled on Jan. 13 and 14 for the national championship, the university will hold two make-up class days in order to ensure that the spring semester meets the minimum number of required class days. The make-up days will be held on two Saturdays: Jan. 25 and Feb. 8. This allows LSU to make up the days without interfering with the Mardi Gras holiday or spring break.

(The changes listed in this message do not apply to students at the Paul M. Hebert Law Center. The Law Center will contact its students directly about make-up classes. In the meantime, law students should contact the Dean’s office with questions.)

The make-up class day for Monday, Jan. 13, will be Saturday, Jan. 25.
The make-up class day for Tuesday, Jan. 14, will be Saturday, Feb. 8.

Courses will be held at the same time and place where they normally occur, unless students are explicitly informed otherwise.

If students have conflicts on the make-up dates, please contact your professors.

Professors may require documentation for missing the make-up days, and students who need guidance on getting appropriate documentation should contact Student Advocacy and Accountability (Tracy Blanchard, or Alyssa Jacobs,
