TOPS University
Pathway

The TOPS University Diploma is intended for those students who aspire to enter a 4-year university, such as Southeastern, LSU or another 4-year university immediately or soon following graduation.

The TOPS University Diploma Pathway should not be confused with the TOPS Scholarship. That has different requirements, and the scholarship is not guaranteed for TOPS University Diploma Pathway students.
