Partial Certification of the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC)
IGETC provides a pattern of courses that fulfills the transfer general education requirements at both the University of California (UC) and the California State University (CSU). Each California community college offers a complete set of courses that satisfy IGETC. If you attend more than one community college, the campus you attend just prior to transfer will certify your completion of IGETC, including courses taken at other California community colleges. The IGETC pattern is not recommended for all majors. See your counselor for advice and more complete information on the IGETC program.
If you are approaching readiness for transfer and, for good cause, are unable to complete one or two IGETC courses, you may be eligible to complete IGETC after transferring. You must describe the good cause in the space provided on the petition on the back of this page. Typical situations which constitute good causes for not completing one or two IGETC courses are illness, unavailable or canceled courses, military service, and unexpected hardships, such as family or employment problems, experienced in the final term before transfer.
