On behalf of the entire LSUA family, we offer up our heartfelt prayers and love to Mrs. Maggie Martin and her family for the loss of her husband, Johnny Martin - a loyal friend and long-time supporter of everything LSUA. Johnny was a true servant leader and friend to so many across Central Louisiana, our state and our nation. He will surely be missed by many but his legacy of giving and caring will live on forever. May he Rest In Peace. God bless the Martin family during this time of great loss.

According to AffordableSchools.net, both LSUA’s online Criminal Justice and Business Administration programs have been rated as some of the most affordable in the country.

The ranking considered the average cost of attendance and the student-to-faculty ratio.

LSUA’s online Criminal Justice program allows students to go from zero college credits to college graduate in just over three years.

“Those who teach in our program are all practitioners meaning they have worked in the field or are currently working in some aspect of criminal justice,” said Beth Whittington, chair of the Department of Criminal Justice. “Our students have built in mentors and we get to know our students and work hard to see each through to graduation and career employment.”

The Business Administration program at LSUA continues to grow with several new offerings, both online and on campus to meet the needs of the workforce and our students. New offerings include a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and a Bachelor of Business Administration with a concentration in International Business.

LSU of Alexandria is being recognized by U.S. News & World Report in the Best Colleges 2020 rankings as a top university for students graduating with the lightest debt load.

According to the publication, LSUA ranks among the best national liberal arts colleges with 42 percent of students graduating with an average debt load of $18,454.

LSUA is the only Louisiana institution to be recognized by the publication for having low amounts of student debt.

“This is another excellent example of why LSUA should be the university of choice when anyone is considering where they want to enroll after graduation or when seeking or completing a degree after entering the workforce,” says Chancellor Dr. Paul Coreil. “We take pride in being ranked as one of the best universities in the nation when considering low student debt upon graduation. We know affordability is a major consideration for students and parents. We hope this ranking will motivate more potential students to take a much closer look at LSUA.”

According to Student Loan Hero, among the class of 2018, 69 percent of students took out loans and graduated with an average debt of $29,800. In Louisiana, the average amount of student loan debt is $27,210, according to The Institute for College Access and Success.

“The financial aid staff works hard to ensure that students receive the most available aid to pay for school. In addition, our administration is dedicated to keeping costs low while maintaining a high-quality education. We invite any interested person to visit campus. Let us show you how to achieve your goals without going into debt,” says Shelly Gill, dean of enrollment management and director of admissions and recruiting.

The data collected by U.S. News & World Report includes loans taken out by students from their colleges, private financial institutions, and from federal, state, and local governments.

LSU of Alexandria is launching a new accounting degree in August announced Dr. Kent Lachney, CPA, Coordinator of Accounting, for the LSUA Department of Business Administration.

Now students in central Louisiana and throughout the state can earn a Bachelor of Science in Accounting in both a traditional and 100% online format. “The degree equips students with the knowledge and skills necessary for successful completion of the CPA exam and for entry into public accounting, industry, or governmental/non-profit employment,” states Dr. Lachney.

“An accounting program which prepares students for the CPA exam is much needed in central Louisiana,” says Business Administration Chair Dr. Randall Dupont. Studies show that the central Louisiana region needs approximately twice as many accountants than are currently employed by area businesses. In addition, the Louisiana Workforce Commission has rated the field of accounting as a 5-star occupation for its high pay and stability.

The new degree follows the department’s recent announcement of accreditation. In June, LSUA received a 10-year internationally-recognized accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). “This accreditation certifies LSUA’s business program meets the highest academic standards,” says Dr. Dupont. The new accounting degree in combination with accreditation means LSUA offers an excellent educational opportunity in central Louisiana and for working professionals online.

Dr. Lachney states, “Accounting graduates can pursue a variety of paths after graduation.” Most seek careers in public accounting (including auditing, tax preparation, and business consulting) and private accounting (including financial accounting, management accounting, and internal auditing). Some graduates continue their education and earn a Master of Science in Accounting or Master of Science in Business Administration, with or without a concentration in Accounting. Others attend law school, he says.

Dr. Lachney and faculty have done an outstanding job in developing the curriculum, says Dr. Dupont. “Dr. Lachney originated the new degree after seeing the need among area employers. With his professional experience and CPA credentials, he was able to develop a student-centric program that will prepare students for a successful career in accounting and, at the same time, meet the needs of organizations for degreed accountants.”

Dr. Lachney expects the new accounting degree to attract both on campus and online students to fill the workforce need and provide high paying jobs in the community. In addition, working professionals who already have a bachelor’s degree in business or non-business programs can enroll for classes to meet the education requirements to sit for the CPA exam.

In anticipation of the new program, the business department launched an Accounting Club this past year. Dr. Lachney, the club’s advisor, explained the purpose of the Accounting Club: “We strive to bring professions in a variety of fields and career stages to campus to show students the possibilities that exist following graduation. So far, guests have included local CPAs in industry and public practice, an FBI special agent, and other accounting professionals.”

The new degree combined with accreditation solidifies LSUA as a premier destination for a quality education in business and accounting. For more information on the accounting degree at LSU of Alexandria, please email Dr. Kent Lachney, CPA,, at [email protected].
