The Transfer Degree Guarantee (TDG) refers to a guaranteed and easy transfer for students from a 2-year community college to a public university in Louisiana. In most cases, courses used to satisfy Associate in Science Transfer degree will apply to university graduation requirements of the 4-year university major, and Louisiana Transfer graduates typically enter a 4-year Louisiana public university as a junior.
