To date, 10 universities in Louisiana and one university in Georgia have recognized the unique caliber of our curriculum and qualifications of our students and faculty. These universities have negotiated agreements (called articulation agreements) that award college credit for certain courses taken at LSMSA. Depending on the institution, LSMSA students can earn up to 74 general education credit hours upon enrolling as an undergraduate student.

Additionally, Northwestern State University and the University of Louisiana at Monroe offer our students options for dual enrollment credit as well as the opportunities to earn an Associate Degree in General Studies at their respective institutions. Please review the Memorandums of Understanding linked below for additional information.

LSMSA continues to seek both wider and deeper participation with all colleges and universities to provide the broadest possible college credit for LSMSA course work.

Copies of the overall articulation matrix and of each university's agreement can be opened below.
