University Connection

University Connection is an administrative division which serves many non-degree-seeking and other non-traditional students attending the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. It is the gateway to higher education for non-traditional students, offering courses that can be tailored to diverse lifestyles. University Connection extends educational opportunities to individuals whose age, location, or employment circumstances prevent enrollment in traditional, on-campus classes.

University Connection offers a simplified special admissions process for individuals wanting to take courses for academic credit without seeking a degree. The office oversees the High School Dual Enrollment Program, an early enrollment program for high school students.

Other non-degree-seeking students served include post-baccalaureates, auditors and professionals seeking further study in their fields. The DOORS (Diversified Opportunities for Older and Returning Students) Program provides services to non-degree seeking applicants who are 21 years of age or older. The program addresses the special registration needs of the older or returning prospective student.

This office also serves elementary, secondary, and vocational school personnel through evening and extension courses and other persons or groups with special educational needs.
