Students must demonstrate competency in computer literacy by successful completion of a competency exam or through completion of a college level computer science course (CIS 105).

Completion of the Associate of Science Louisiana Transfer (ASLT) 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 ASLT degree.

The anticipated major or area of interest will impact the type and number of humanities classes that should be completed, or which type of physics class would be most appropriate.
