UC Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) 2011-2012
Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC)
The IGETC is a series of courses that community college students can use to satisfy lower division general education requirements at any CSU or UC campus.

The Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum will permit a student to transfer from a community college to a campus in either the California State University or the University of California system without the need, after transfer, to take additional lower-division, general education courses to satisfy campus general education requirements.

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.

IGETC certification is made by the Admissions and Records Office at the time transcripts are requested. In most cases, the entire pattern must be completed before transferring to receive certification of completion. For students approaching readiness for transfer and for good cause are unable to complete one or two IGETC courses, partial certification may be approved provided those courses are not required for admission. In such cases, a petition must be completed by the student; see a Counselor. Students must notify the Admissions and Records Office of coursework from another institution. Coursework from out of state and private institutions will not be used for IGETC certification. Students are advised to meet with a Counselor before enrolling in the last planned semester prior to transferring. At this time, students may request an official evaluation of IGETC certification.
