A transfer student must:
- Have earned an Associate Degree or higher from an accredited institution, or
- Have earned 24 hours or more (exclusive of developmental deficiencies):
- Cumulative GPA of 2.25 or higher; no developmental deficiencies; and have completed a college level English and Mathematics course, or
- Earned fewer than 24 hours (exclusive of developmental deficiencies):
- Cumulative GPA of 2.25 and meet all other admissions standards for first-time freshmen.
Students transferring should submit an application and official transcript(s) from each college attended whether credit was earned or transferable. Transcripts must be mailed directly from the college/university to Louisiana Tech. Students who fail to acknowledge attendance at any college or university in which they have been registered are subject to having their admission canceled or, if enrolled, to being dismissed from Louisiana Tech University. Evaluations concerning probation, suspension, grades, grade point average, hours pursued and earned are based on Tech standards, regardless of prior determinations at the other institutions attended.
No student will be admitted if under scholastic or disciplinary suspension from another college or university. A suspended student will not be considered for admission until the time interval of suspension has elapsed; where such interval is not clearly defined, it will equal a period comparable to rules in place at Tech.
A maximum 68 semester hours from a junior college or community college may be applied toward a bachelor's degree at Louisiana Tech. Normally, only courses taught at the freshmen/sophomore level at Louisiana Tech will be accepted from a junior/community college toward a degree at Louisiana Tech.
Applicants for readmission to Louisiana Tech must complete an application for admission when the student has not been enrolled for one or more quarters (except for the Summer Quarter). Previously enrolled students, out for one quarter only (except Summer Quarter), must submit a one-page readmission form in order to be eligible to register.
Readmission students who have attended another college/university since they were last enrolled at Louisiana Tech must submit an official transcript from each college/university. Transcripts must be mailed directly from the college/university to Louisiana Tech. If the required transcripts are not received by the end of the first admitted quarter, the student will not be permitted to attend subsequent quarters. If the required transcripts are submitted and the student is determined to have been ineligible for readmission, no credit will be awarded for that quarter. Official Louisiana Tech academic transcripts will not be provided to any student with incomplete readmission records.
Undergraduate students who have dropped out or have been suspended because of poor academic performance may request to start over with the status of an entering freshman at Louisiana Tech University under the provisions of academic renewal.
