The Associate of Science Louisiana Transfer (ASLT) degree is a statewide transfer program, which provides opportunities to acquire knowledge in a broad range of subjects, with an emphasis on science. This is accomplished through strengthening skills necessary for problem-solving, critical thinking, and scientific reasoning by creating learning environments suited to individual learning styles.
A degree will be awarded upon the completion of a 39 credit hours General Education block, which is the core of the Louisiana Transfer Degree, as well as an additional 21 credit hours block, for a total of 60 credit hours. Students who have completed this degree (ASLT) will be granted upper division (junior) status at a Louisiana four-year public university.
All students who might be considering an eventual transfer from one institution to another should develop, with an advisor’s assistance, a written degree plan of courses to take. It is the student’s responsibility to know the transfer admission requirements and to be as prepared as possible to compete for a place in the program.
