Associate of Science / Louisiana Transfer Degree (ASLT): Biological Sciences Track

Requirements for the ASLT track in biological sciences are listed below. When more than one option for fulfilling a requirement is given, even if some of those options are listed as “recommended” or “electives,” students should select courses that are required for the major they intend to pursue at a university. Students transferring to a University of Louisiana System (ULS) institution should follow the appropriate ULS track rather than the curriculum below.

All courses applied to the degree must be passed with a C or better. Developmental courses may not be applied to the degree. All students must finish CCSS 1100 to graduate.
