Louisiana's Community and Technical Colleges

Admissions

Louisiana's Community and Technical Colleges are “open admissions” institutions.  Open admissions is an unselective and non-competitive college admissions process in which the only requirements for entrance is a high school diploma or General Educational Development (GED) certificate.  New applicants generally need to take the COMPASS Placement Test to determine their level of college readiness.
