Transfer Degree, A.A.


DEGREE: ASSOCIATE OF ARTS
DIVISION: ARTS AND HUMANITIES

The Associate of Arts Louisiana Transfer degree program is designed to facilitate transfer from community colleges to related Baccalaureate degree programs at public universities in Louisiana.  The purpose of the Associate of Arts Louisiana Transfer degree program is to provide rigorous general education coursework coupled with related preparatory instruction in pre-defined discipline specific tracks to allow seamless transition from Associate degree to Baccalaureate degree with maximization of credits awarded. The General Education courses will transfer as a total block, rather than by individual course review.

The total credit hours required for the degree is 60, with 39 hours required in approved General Education coursework and the remaining  21 credit hours in pre-approved discipline-specific coursework as preparation for continued studies in a related Baccalaureate of Arts degree program.  Students in the Associate of Arts Louisiana Transfer Degree program may choose from six concentrations: 1) Business, 2) Criminal Justice, 3) Fine Arts, 4) Humanities, 5) Mass Communication, or 6) Social Sciences. 

Advising and planning are key to a student’s success in maximizing the transfer experience.  All students who might eventually transfer from community college to a university should develop, with an advisor’s assistance, a written degree plan of courses to take for the transfer associate degree.  Whenever possible, students should use the transfer degree requirements to satisfy the specific course requirements for the baccalaureate degree and major of the university to which they wish to transfer.  This information is available through the university’s website linked to www.transferdegree.com (Schools Participating).
