Completion of all of the requirements in the Intersegmental General education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) will permit a student to transfer from a community college to a campus in either the California State University or University of California system. The student will not be required to complete additional lower division general education courses after transfer.
It should be noted that completion of the IGETC is not a requirement for admission to the CSU or UC, nor is it the only way to fulfill the lower-division general education requirements prior to transfer. Depending on a student’s major, it may be advantageous to fulfill the CSU’s or UC’s general education requirements or those of the particular campus, school or college to which the student plans to transfer. This applies generally to high-unit majors.
The course requirements for all areas must be completed before the IGETC can be certified. All courses must be completed with grades of “C” or better.
