HAMMOND — Louisiana State Police is now investigating a “potential incident” within Southeastern Louisiana University’s network, the university announced Monday.
Communication networks at Southeastern have experienced outages since Friday. Because of the outages, students have not had access to course materials and email and students have not been able to use credit cards on campus.
The university says they intentionally took their network offline as a preventative measure.
“Since then, the University is working to restore systems to normal operations as quickly and safely as possible,” the university said in a social media post. “We also reported the incident to Louisiana State Police, which is conducting an investigation into this mater.”
The university says that once systems are restored, students and staff will be “prompted to create a new password the first time you login to the system.”
The cause of the outages is unknown. Southeastern released a statements on social media over the weekend alerting students and staff that operations would continue despite some systems being offline. The university turned off the comment section on Sunday night’s post.
School officials say faculty will be working with students to minimize the effect of the disruption as systems are restored.
