BATON ROUGE - More than 300 LSU instructors are expecting a letter of termination.

Some of teachers have already received there notices, others are still waiting to receive word.

The letter serves as a warning that the instructors could lose their jobs in the coming year.

If the university can not come up with another way to trim the $13 million in cuts ordered by Governor Jindal, jobs will be lost.

Instructors say right now, there is no plan in place to keep certain courses around if there is no one to teach them.
