Intersegmental General Education

Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) 2017-2018

The course requirements for all areas must be completed before IGETC can be fully certified. After final grades are posted, you must request IGETC Certification at the time you request final transcripts to be sent to your chosen transfer campus(es). The IGETC must be certified prior to transfer.  All courses must be completed with grades of “C” or better. Completion of area 1C (CSU) and/or area 6A (UC) must be completed for certification. Documentation of meeting this requirement must be on file in the Admissions & Records Office prior to granting certification. For more information, please see a Counselor.

Completion of the IGETC is not a requirement for transfer to a 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. Students may find it advantageous to take courses fulfilling CSU’s general education requirements or those of a particular UC campus.

1

Indicates that transfer credit is limited by either UC or CSU or both. Consult the University of California Transfer Course Agreement, available in the Transfer Center, or your faculty advisor/counselor, for specific information.

2

Indicates that a single course, even though listed in more than one area, can only be used to satisfy one requirement.

3

Courses used to meet IGETC requirements may also be used to satisfy the "American History and Institutions Requirement" at CSU. See Transfer Center IGETC handout for clarification.

SUPPLEMENTARY NOTES - See Counselor for clarification on the following items:

  1. A single course, even though listed in more than one place, can only be used to satisfy one subject area of the IGETC. 
  2. IGETC is not advisable for high-unit majors, e.g. sciences, engineering.
  3. Eleanor Roosevelt and Revelle Colleges at UC San Diego do not accept the IGETC.
  4. IGETC may not be appropriate for students who have completed courses at a CSU or UC campus.
  5. "Double Counting" of courses toward the major is not limited by the IGETC, but is limited by other directives. The UC will also allow IGETC courses to count toward major requirements. CSU campus limitations on double-counting of general education courses toward major requirements are not changed by the IGETC.
  6. If you are transferring to a UC campus, the UC Transfer Course Agreement lists unit limitations that might apply to the courses you have selected. 
  7. See degree and graduation requirements in addition to General Education requirements.  Also see COD's kinesiology requirement for an A.S. or A.A. degree, and English, reading, and math minimum competencies.
