Greetings, Jaguars!

I am elated to welcome you to our beloved Southern University and A&M College from the Division of Enrollment Management and Student Success. This Division consists of the Office of Admissions and Recruitment, Financial Aid, Outreach and TRIO Programs, and the Office of Student Advocacy. From your inception into SU to your graduation day, we stand ready to bring the support services you need to be successful during your time here at SU.

For the next few years, we promise exciting experiences as you matriculate as a student here “On The Bluff”. At SU, you will expand your horizons, encounter countless leadership opportunities, establish lifelong friendships, gain real-world experiences and, of course, have an amazing time while accomplishing your academic goals. I encourage you to take full advantage of the resources, support, and wonderful experiences that will be availed to you.

You deserve to be proud of your achievements, and we are delighted that you have chosen SU to complete your education. As we say here at SU, “WELCOME TO THE BLUFF”! I look forward to personally welcoming you to the Southern University and A&M College family.
