Student Development B1: Educational Planning 

 Jenny at Balboa Park  Syllabus for STDV B1 April 12 & 26 CRN 31862

Educational Goals
60 units are required to graduate from Bakersfield College, which include your major and general education. There are 3 General Education patterns, depending upon your goal.
The 2013-2014 Bakersfield College catalog and addendum are located online:

The BC, CSU, and UC (IGETC) PDF files are computer friendly and may be filled out after saving to your computer. Most browser will not let you save the filled in form. Therefore, you may want to print a blank form and fill it in with pencil, not pen, to make changes easier. More information about BC degree guidelines can be found online in the BC appended 2013-2014 catalog.
Summaries of the 3 General Education patterns can be found on the red links below:
