BATON ROUGE- To get into LSU, students have to score 22 or higher on the ACT, with at least an 18 in the English subsection and 19 in math, as well as receive a 3.0 GPA in high school.
    
That is, unless they manage to get one of the university's rare waivers that allow them to enroll without meeting the normal criteria.
    
According to school documents, the little-known granting of admissions waivers is on the rise at LSU.
    
For this summer and fall, at least 65 have been granted, a few of them through the university's "Tiger Bridge" program. The program allows students to live on campus while taking classes through Baton Rouge Community College.
    
The university received 94 requests for the current school year.
