ISDS Advising Questions
Yes, but check out the ISDS FAQs first as you may find the answer to your question there.
First, check the Tiger Transfer Tables through the LSU website to see if the course you plan to enroll in is listed there and what it is equivalent to at LSU. If the course is not listed on the Tiger Transfer Table, you will want to gather as much information about the course as you can and schedule an appointment with the ISDS undergraduate advisor to discuss the potential course equivalent at LSU. If the course is from an international institution, you will need to obtain a PACE form from the Academic Program Abroad office for the advisor to sign. All business majors who intend to enroll at another institution must obtain permission in advance from their academic counselor in the Office of Business Student Success.
