Transfer Steps

In order to transfer, a student must:

  2. Maintain a 2.5 academic GPA on all transferable college work attempted.
  3. Receive a grade of “C” or better in a college-level english and math courses that fulfilled a general education requirement at the institution where it was taken.

Students who will not have 30 transferable credit hours by the time they plan to enroll at LSU can still be considered for admission if they meet all remaining transfer requirements and freshman admission requirements.
