2020-2021 Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum Requirements

Completion of all the requirements in the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) meet lower-division general education requirements at either a California State University (CSU) or University of California (UC) without the need after transfer to take additional lower division general education courses. All courses must be completed with grades of "C-" or better.

Students can also visit assist.org to see which courses will complete lower-division major preparation requirements. Students must see a counselor to have the IGETC pattern certified before transferring. Students who have selected a specific campus for transfer should consult with a counselor before following the IGETC pattern.

Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) examinations are appropriate for inclusion on the IGETC pattern.
