While most courses at SOWELA are designed to lead to direct employment in a specific career, some courses are designed for transfer to other institutions of higher education. The Statewide Student Transfer Guide and Articulation System Matrices are available to assist students with determining the potential transferability of courses. These matrices indicate transfer equivalencies of courses among Louisiana’s public colleges and universities and may be accessed through the Board of Regents’ web page. Students should note that the matrices are not all-inclusive. The determination of what credit will transfer from SOWELA Technical Community College rests with the receiving institution. Therefore, students are advised to contact the institution to which they intend to transfer to inquire about the potential transferability of courses and to determine whether the courses may be used to meet graduation requirements within their chosen major.
