Two Schools Fail GRAD Act

Posted: Updated:

BATON ROUGE, La. - The Louisiana Board of Regents met Wednesday in Baton Rouge to discuss the GRAD Act and its designations.

During the meeting, it was approved by the Board of Regents and indicated that Louisiana State University Eunice (LSU-E) failed to achieve the progress necessary to pass the GRAD Act.  

According to an official statement, the act ties performance to annual tuition authority and 15 percent of campus-funding formula allocation.

Also, as allowed in the Board of Regents' GRAD Act Annual Evaluation Process, Southern University Shreveport, SUSLA, has appealed its preliminary designation of having failed to make sufficient progress.

All other public colleges and universities were successful in meeting the targets outlined in their GRAD Act agreements, and are now authorized to raise tuition 10 percent for the 2012-2013 school year to retain 100 percent of their formula dollars.
