About the school
Fletcher Technical Community College was originally established in 1948 for the purpose of offering occupational training for the people living in the five following parishes: Assumption, Terrebonne, St. James, Lafourche, and St. Charles as South Louisiana Trade School.
The school management has always strived to be alert to the necessity for skill acquisition and to offering training in budding occupations by assessing employment statistics. With an evolving mission and programs offered over the years, the name changed in 1977 to South Louisiana Vocational-Technical School, to South Louisiana Regional Technical Institute, to Louisiana Technical College – South Louisiana Campus.
It later changed to Louisiana Technical College – L. E. Fletcher Campus in 1999 in commemoration of the former director.
Total program cost for residents is about $12,300 while the estimated cost for non-residents is about $23,000.

PROOF OF SELECTIVE SERVICE

SUPPLEMENTAL ITEMS FOR ADMISSION (NOT MANDATORY):
PLACEMENT TEST SCORES
Scores are used for program placement only and are not used in determining admission to the college except when academic achievement levels are required by a licensure board (such as the Practical Nursing Program). Transfer students may submit official transcripts from a college or university accredited by one of the six regional accrediting agencies as a substitution for the entrance exam. The transcript must contain sufficient information for placement (English and Math courses), otherwise it will be necessary to take the entrance/placement exam.
Fletcher accepts two types of placement test scores – ACT and/or Accuplacer. Test scores should be within 3 years of the expected date of enrollment. An applicant who needs to send ACT scores to Fletcher can do so through ACT’s website: www.act.org. Fletcher’s school code is 5033.
If you do not have ACT or Accuplacer scores, please visit Fletcher’s Testing Center for more information.
OFFICIAL COLLEGE TRANSCRIPTS
Prior to the start of the planned semester, a student wanting to transfer credit from another regionally accredited institution, must submit a complete and official transcript from that institution. The transcript may be sent to Student Services from the issuing institution, or it may be hand delivered by the applicant in a sealed envelope from the insitution.
OFFICIAL HIGH SCHOOL TRANSCRIPT/GED/HISET
High School Transcripts will be accessed through a Student Transcript System for those who graduated from a Louisiana high school after May 2003. Any student who attended a Louisiana high school prior to 2003 or graduated from an out of state high school can submit an official high school transcript. High school completion is required to be eligible for financial aid, and this official document may be required for those purposes.
Home schooled students or a high school diploma or GED/Hiset received from an online school or high school not approved by a state board of education will be handled on a case by case basis.
If a home-schooled student does not have a state approved high school diploma or GED/HiSET, he or she must provide the following:
- Proof he/she is 16 years of age or older
- An official, current transcript for any coursework completed at any public/private high school (if applicable)
- A complete list of the courses taken during the freshman through senior year of the home school home study program
- A complete listing of the textbooks used during the course of the home school study program
