The transfer associate degree is designed to provide students with an opportunity to complete the first 60 hours of work toward a baccalaureate degree at a two-year or community college. Students who successfully complete a designated transfer associate program are eligible to enter a four-year public university as a junior, with all 60 (non-developmental) credits transferring to the receiving university.

The Louisiana transfer associate degree consists of a 39-hour General Education (GenEd) block and a 21-hour block of additional course work. Students who enter a four-year public university with this degree in hand will have met the institution’s general education requirements and will be granted upper division (junior) status, with all of its concomitant rights and privileges. This guarantee applies to those who successfully complete the degree with a grade of "C" or better in each course.

Students may complete either an Associate of Arts/Louisiana Transfer (AA/LT) or Associate of Science/Louisiana Transfer (AS/LT) degree, depending on interests and aspirations for further study toward the baccalaureate. Upon deciding on a prospective major, it is important that students do some research and seek advice about what the program’s prerequisite courses are so that they may be completed as a part of the AA or AS degree.

IN SUMMARY, the Louisiana Transfer Associate Degree (with grade requirements met) guarantees:

  • Admission to a 4-year public university
  • Junior-level standing
  • Transfer of all 60 hours
  • Completion of General Education block requirements at any Louisiana public university
  • Equal opportunity to compete against ‘native’ students for admission to limited access programs

The Louisiana Transfer Associate Degree does not guarantee:

  • Admission to every university or degree program: student must meet institutional or degree program admission requirements (e.g., GPA, specific course completions, etc)
  • That the courses taken for the transfer degree will meet specified course requirements of the major
