Louisiana Transfer Program
Division of Academics
The Louisiana Transfer (LT) Degree Program is designed to provide students with an opportunity to complete the first 60 hours of course work toward a baccalaureate degree at a 2-year or community college. LT graduates are eligible to enter a 4-year Louisiana public university as a junior, with all 60 (non-developmental) credits transferring to the receiving university. The Transfer Degree Guarantee (TDG) refers to a guaranteed and easy transfer for students from a 2-year community college to a public university in Louisiana.
Students may complete either an Associate of Arts (AALT) or Associate of Science (ASLT), depending on their interests and aspirations for further study and a bachelor’s degree. It is the student’s responsibility to choose courses that will maximize preparation for the university major, so it is important for students to do some research and seek advice when designing their LT degree. Each degree consists of a 39-hour General Education (GenEd) block and 21-hours of additional course work related to the prospective major.
