Certification: The “Request for Certification” form is available and can be filed in the Admissions and Records Office. Official transcripts of any
coursework completed outside Peralta District must be on file prior or accompany the certification request. Courses taken at other California
Community Colleges will be placed in the CSU-GE/Breadth area identified by the offering college the term the course was taken. Courses
taken at other colleges or universities (other than a CA Community College) may be used on CSU-GE as long as the courses are determined
to meet CSU-GE course standards. Berkeley City College (Peralta Community College District) can certify either full certification (completion
of all requirements in each subject-area) or partial certification (completion by subject-area) of the CSU-GE/Breadth. Students should request
certification when a final transcript is requested to be sent to their choice of CSU, the term prior to transfer. Once certification is completed
student records (transcript) will reflect the full or partial certification of CSU-GE/Breadth.
