Associate of  Arts/Louisiana Transfer (AALT)

Associate of  Arts/Louisiana Transfer (AALT)

The Associate of Arts Degree is designed for students who are planning to transfer to a four-year college/university and major in one of the social sciences, humanities, criminal justice, or business degrees. It is also for students who may not be planning to transfer to a four-year institution but who wish to find employment in a social, behavioral, business, or humanities-related field, or gain a broad analytical and cultural understanding of the human experience. All courses applied to the degree must be passed with a ‘C’ or better. Developmental courses may not be applied to the degree. Students who plan to transfer should consult with an RPCC Advisor, as well as an advisor from the other college/university, to assure transferability of credit. Completion of the AALT 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 AALT degree. There are four concentrations- Social Sciences, Humanities, Criminal Justice, and Business.
