Student Development B1: Educational Planning
No book is required for STDV B1. The college catalog is highly recommended to preserve your catalog rights with a hard copy. The current catalog is located online only. There will also be an assignment using the catalog. Other course information handouts will be provided by the instructor.
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 2014-2015 Bakersfield College catalog and addendum are located online:
The summaries of the BC, CSU, and UC (IGETC) General Education patterns can be found on the red links below. More information about BC degree guidelines can be found online.
To begin your educational plan, obtain your test scores from the Assessment Center. You will need your test scores to fill out the Abbreviated Student Educational Plan (ASEP)
Once you have decided upon your goal, choose a general education pattern and a major offered at Bakersfield College, and/or use www.assist.org for transfer major prerequisites, to begin filling in the 2-page Comprehensive Student Educational Plan 1 & 2 (SEP) forms for BC, CSU or UC general education patterns to map your educational goals. You must obtain a copy of your course placement (assessment scores) to complete this form. Requirements from a few prior catalogs may be found on the "Forms" page.
The Course Placement and Comprehensive Student Educational Plan 1 & 2 (SEP) documents are writable forms when saved to your computer. Save the computer friendly PDF files to your computer and then fill out. Most browsers 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.
A Semester by Semester plan is helpful to map out courses remaining to reach your goal. The form below is for your use only. The Comprehensive SEP 1 form includes a semester by semester plan, which must be completed on the form. Attaching the following form of the Semester by Semester plan for your use only will not be accepted.
