Transfer Students

Transfer Credit Information

Credits earned from colleges and universities accredited by regional accrediting associations are accepted by the university. Credits earned in some non-accredited institutions are accepted on a limited basis. The dean of the college offering the degree determines the extent to which accepted credits are applied toward a degree. Evaluations of courses will not be made in advance of receipt of the completed application and official transcripts from each college and university attended. Not more than one-half the credits required for a degree may be accepted from a two-year college (except one within the LSU System) unless specifically authorized by the student's dean. Courses taken at the freshman and sophomore levels at two-year colleges (courses at the 100 and 200 level) may not be counted for transfer credit in upper-level courses (any course numbered 300 or above). 

Check out the LSUS Pilot Transfer table to see what courses transfer from your college to LSUS.

The Transfer Course Guide (the Course Articulation Matrix) will help students know which courses have been designated as transfer equivalents among the colleges and universities.

If you have specific questions regarding transfer credit equivalencies, please contact the LSUS Records office at (318) 797-5119.
