Return to Programs by School Return to: Programs by School

The general education requirements below are to be used in conjunction with the Associate of Arts/Science Louisiana Transfer (AALT and ASLT) degrees. General education courses should be selected so that they meet the requirements of the associate degree being pursued as well as the requirements of the anticipated major at the university to which the student intends to transfer.  Students completing a Louisiana transfer degree must complete all general education courses, as well as all other courses for the transfer degree, with grades of “C” or better.

Delta currently has six General Education Student Learning Outcomes. These are achieved through the successful completion of select courses in the following categories: humanities/ fine arts, social/behavioral sciences, and natural sciences/ mathematics. The General Education Student Learning Outcomes are as follows:

  • WRITTEN COMMUNICATION—Students understand how to effectively research and construct a clear, concise essay.
  • VERBAL COMMUNICATION—Students create and deliver presentations individually and within groups to apply organization, preparation, and poise.
  • MATHEMATICAL COMPUTATION—Students understand and utilize formulas, equations, and quantitative problem solving strategies.
  • SCIENTIFIC INQUIRY—Students understand the elements of scientific procedure and apply the scientific method.
