Transfer Students

Louisiana Transfer Associate Degrees (AALT/ASLT)

The transfer associate degrees (the Associate of Arts Louisiana Transfer and the Associate of Science Louisiana Transfer) are offered by two-year or community colleges as an interim step toward the bachelor's degree. They allow students to complete the first 60 hours of college work toward a 4-year degree while attending a two-year or community college. These 60-hour degrees are designed to give students the foundation to succeed in the baccalaureate and to help them make wise choices about the majors that best fit their career plans. The transfer associate degrees can help students make the most of their first two years of college, especially if they are initially undecided on their major. Once the degree is earned (39 hours of general education courses and another 21 hours of more specific courses), that 60-hour block of courses will transfer to a Louisiana public university.
