General Education at CLTCC 

Welcome! Thank you for your interest in general education courses at CLTCC that are transferable to any public Louisiana college, university, or within the Louisiana Community & Technical College System (LCTCS). Students pursuing a two-year or four-year degree are required to take and successfully complete general education courses. Every college or university normally requires students to take general education courses, regardless of the student's major program of study. These courses are often taken early in the program before the student's core degree coursework. The courses are designed to give undergraduates a broad background in all major academic disciplines — mathematics, natural sciences, social sciences, humanities, and composition. For more information about general education courses at CLTCC, contact John Broderick, Dean of Academics, by email at [email protected] or by phone at 318-487-5443, EXT. 1939.

Savings on Textbooks and Course Materials

Most of our general education courses use Open Education Resources (OER) which are free to students and available online by the first day of classes. Options may be available to download resources on a personal device or print via a third party printing service for a fee. All required OER materials will be specified by the instructor.

Our mathematics courses use a low-cost online textbook and homework platform that cost much less than traditional products. Check our online bookstore, MBSDirect, to view and purchase the required materials for these classes.
