LSU announces Winter makeup days

BATON ROUGE, LA (WVUE) - Louisiana State University has announced a schedule of makeup days due to Winter Weather.

Due to last week's weather-related closure, the university must hold two make-up class days in order to be assured that the spring semester meets the minimum number of required class days.

The make-up days will be held on two Saturdays: February 3 and February 24, according to the university's news release. The lost class day for Wednesday, January 17, will be made up Saturday, February 3. The lost class day for Thursday, January 18, will be made up Saturday, February 24.

These make up days allow LSU to make up the days without interfering with the Mardi Gras holiday or spring break.

These days do not apply to students at the Paul M. Hebert Law Center. The Law Center will contact its students directly about make-up classes.

Courses will be held at the same time and place where they normally occur, unless students are explicitly informed otherwise.  We appreciate everyone's understanding and flexibility under these exceptional circumstances.

Students who have unavoidable conflicts on these Saturdays should contact their professors as soon as possible.

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 Eddie St-Vil,

Last week's closure also affects the academic and registration calendars:
