Associate of Arts - Louisiana Transfer Degree - Social Sciences Concentration

The Associate of Arts/Louisiana Transfer (AA/LT) Degree provides a seamless transition to appropriate baccalaureate degree programs at public colleges and universities in Louisiana. Students should select courses carefully to ensure they satisfy the requirements of the desired degree at the receiving institution.

The degree includes 39 credit hours of General Education requirements and 21 credit hours of electives that prepare the student for the requirements of the desired bachelor’s degree. All courses must be completed with a grade of “C” or better.

The Associate of Arts/Louisiana Transfer (AA/LT) Degree includes four concentrations: Business, Fine Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences. Please see the following program pages for the requirements for each concentration.

Students pursuing a Louisiana Transfer Degree should check the catalog of the institution to which they intend to transfer for specific course recommendations, depending on their anticipated major.

Completion of the AA/LT degree guarantees that the student has met, in full, all lower-division general education requirements at the receiving Louisiana public university. Graduates transferring with the transfer degree will have junior status. Courses or GPA requirements for specific majors, departments, or schools are not automatically satisfied by an AA/LT degree.
