Louisiana Transfer Degree


The Louisiana Transfer Associate Degree was developed in 2009 to ensure that students completing the 60 hour AA/LT (Associate of Arts) or AS/LT (Associate of Science) can transfer from any state community college to any of the state's four year universities without losing credit.

By completing specific elective courses within the AS/LT curriculum at a two-year institution, students may meet the admission requirements for undergraduate programs offered at LSUHSC. Admission to these programs is competitive, and earning an AS/LT degree does not guarantee admission.


Prerequisite course requirements for admission to the following undergraduate programs may be met by earning an AS/LT degree. The specific requirements vary by program, and interested applicants should consult the individual program websites for specific admission criteria.

Clinical Laboratory Science (B.S.)
Cardiopulmonary Science (B.S.)
Dental Hygiene (B.S.)
Nursing (B.S.N.)
Public Health (BSPH).
