Associate of Science/Louisiana Transfer Degree Track in Biological Sciences

The Associate of Science Louisiana Transfer Biological Sciences Concentration provides students with the foundational knowledge required to continue their education in pursuit of a four-year degree in the biological/life sciences fields. The curriculum is part of the Associate of Science Louisiana Transfer Degree program (ASLT).

Completion of a Louisiana Transfer degree guarantees that the student has met, in full, all lower division general education requirements for all receiving Louisiana public universities. Graduates who transfer with a Louisiana Transfer degree will be assigned junior status at the receiving institution. Note that course and GPA requirements for specific majors, departments, and schools must be met independently and should be verified by the student.
