Admission Requirements – Transfer Admission


  1. Have earned 24 hours or more with:
    • A cumulative GPA of 2.25 or higher
    • Completion of a college-level English and Mathematics course


  1. Have earned fewer than 24 hours with
    • A cumulative GPA of 2.25 and
    • Having met all other admissions standards for first-time freshmen


  1. Have earned an Associate Degree or higher from an accredited institution.

Students transferring should submit an application and official transcript(s) from each college attended, regardless of whether credit was earned or transferable. Transcripts must be mailed directly from the college/university to Louisiana Tech University. 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, and hours pursued and earned are based on Louisiana Tech University 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 Louisiana Tech University.

A maximum of 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 freshman/sophomore level at Louisiana Tech will be accepted from a junior/community college toward a Louisiana Tech degree.

The graduate transfer admission category applies to an applicant who

  1. is currently enrolled in a graduate program at another institution in the US and seeks admission to Louisiana Tech University’s Graduate School without completing that program, or
  2. was previously enrolled in a graduate program at another institution in the US, but did not complete that degree.

Transfer admission students must meet the same requirements as entering graduate students, and be in good academic standing at the current institution (i.e., be eligible to return to the previous institution). An official transcript from the current institution reflecting the up-to-date academic record must be submitted before an admission decision can be made.
