In 2009, Act 356 established a requirement to develop a statewide transfer associate degree. That law set into motion unprecedented cooperation among faculties and institutions and has led to the creation of the Associate of Arts/Louisiana Transfer (AA/LT) degree. In fall 2010, Delgado began offering this degree, which allows students to complete the first 60 hours of foundation college work and seamlessly transfer those credits toward a baccalaureate degree at a state four-year institution.
39 hours of general education courses
21 hours of more specific courses (students must receive advising before selecting courses)

When students earn the transfer associate degree, this block of courses will transfer to the public university of their choice. Earning a Louisiana Transfer associate degree guarantees a student admission to a four-year public university (providing he/she meets that university’s standards); junior-level standing; transfer of all 60 course hours (students must earn a “C” or better in each course); and equal opportunity to compete with “native” university students for admission to limited access programs.
