LSU outlines TOPS options for students

LSU students who are eligible for the TOPS scholarship should expect a call from the university Tuesday about how to deal with TOPS cuts.

LSU sent a mass email to students Monday outlining their options.

The first is to defer their payment - half the balance will be due by December 8 and the remaining half will be split into three payments that are due monthly throughout the spring semester.

There's also federal financial aid available, as well as federal loans for parents.
