* US Students usually have an application fee of $50 at LSU ($75 for applications after 15 May), but these fees are automatically paid for you by the Department of Physics and Astronomy.
**Foreign students have an application fee of $70. (There is no possibility of late submission after the final application deadline listed.)
***The Medical Physics masters degree program does not accept students for starting in the spring term. The reason is that we have a specific sequence of courses, and this starts in the fall semester.
****Completed application forms may be submitted without any application fee directly to the Department either by regular mail or by email. For further details on submitting application forms by regular mail or email, click here.
