Intersegmental General Education
Transfer Curriculum Counseling Form
Name: (please print)_______________________________________ Student Number: A_____________________
Read first: Important information regarding the appropriate use of the IGETC Counseling Form.
1. Completion of all the requirements in the IGETC 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.
2. The IGETC is not advisable for all transfer students (see bottom page 2 side for list).
3. Transfer students, pursuing a major that requires extensive lower-division preparation, may be better served by
taking courses which fulfill the CSU General Education-Breadth requirements or those of the UC Campus or
college to which they plan to transfer.
4. The IGETC can be completed in its entirety before transferring. Students may obtain a partial IGETC if no
more than two courses are missing. The UC or CSU is responsible for verifying that missing IGETC course(s)
has been completed.
5. All courses must be with “C” grades or better.
6. Transcripts to verify courses completed at other colleges must be submitted prior to certification and can only
be certified in the IGETC category determined by the original college. (See #8 regarding high school
7. Courses taken at foreign institutions will not be permitted for IGETC certification.
8. If the foreign language requirement was satisfied in high school, the student’s high school transcripts must be
submitted prior to certification.
9. Coursework completed for the IGETC will be honored for certification provided that the courses were on the
college’s approved IGETC list at the time the courses were completed. (See a counselor for further
10. Students who initially enroll at a UC campus, leave and attend a community college, then plan to return to the
SAME UC campus cannot use IGETC. Consult a counselor for detailed information.
Directions: Indicate courses completed at Taft College and list courses taken at other colleges. If an Advance
Placement Examination (AP) was taken, list the AP dates and scores (3, 4, or 5 can be used to satisfy any category
of the IGETC except the Area 1B category). In the “Course” column, list the courses taken at Taft College.
Indicate total units completed in “Units” column and the grade earned in the “Grade” column.
Please remember that the UC INSTITUTIONS and MAJORS that do not accept or recommend the use of

Berkeley: School of Business Administration; Colleges of Chemistry, Engineering, Natural Resources, and
Environmental Design
