Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum

2019-2020 Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC)

Completion of the IGETC will permit a student to complete their lower division G.E. requirements to either the California State University (CSU) or University of California (UC) system. Courses on this list are approved for the academic year 2019-2020 which begins Fall Semester, 2019. This list is valid through Summer 2020. It should be noted that completion of the IGETC is not a requirement for transfer to CSU or UC, nor is it the only way to fulfill the lower-division general education requirements of the CSU or UC prior to transfer. A grade of C or better is required in ALL coursework used for IGETC certification.

Students who took an out-of-state Political Science course, please see a counselor.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

Students enrolled in high unit majors (i.e., architecture, computer science, engineering, sciences) are frequently recommended not to use IGETC to meet general education certification but rather to meet transfer admission requirements and complete required lower division major and support courses. See your counselor to develop an academic educational plan.

It is recommended that all IGETC requirements be completed prior to transfer. If you are unable to complete one or two IGETC courses in the final term before transfer, you may be eligible to complete IGETC after transfer, providing that those courses are not among those required for admission. See your counselor for more information.

Certification is not automatic, and must be requested after the completion of the last term prior to transfer. This request should be made in the Admissions and Records Office.
