Last First Student I.D. # Major
Completion of all the requirements in the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (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, G. E. courses to satisfy campus G.E requirements. However, completion of the IGETC is not a requirement for admission
to the CSU or UC system nor is the only way to fulfill lower division G.E. requirements (see reverse side for more information about IGETC
exceptions, restrictions, and certification).
For more specific information, please see a counselor before enrolling in these courses.

Completion of all the requirements in the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) with a grade of "C" or better will
permit a student to transfer from a California community college to a campus in either the California State University (CSU) or the University
of California (UC) system without the need after transfer to take additional lower-division general education courses. It should be noted that
completion of the IGETC is not a requirement for admission to the CSU or UC system.
The IGETC is not advisable for all transfer students. The IGETC is most advantageous for transfers who have not yet decided on a major
or a campus. Once a student has identified a major, it is important to give priority toward fulfilling all required major preparation courses,
particularly in "high unit" majors that select applicants on the basis of satisfaction of lower division major requirements. If a student is
pursuing a major that requires extensive lower division preparation, they may be better served by taking courses which fulfill the CSU
General Education/Breadth requirements or the general education of the specific UC campus or college to which they plan to transfer,
examples of such majors include, but are NOT LIMITED to: Computer Science, Business, Engineering, Pre-professional schools, and
Sciences. (Note: Students transferring to UC San Diego's Eleanor Roosevelt and Revelle Colleges may complete IGETC, but they must
also meet specific general education requirements of those colleges).
Restrictions: A student who is initially enrolled at a UC and is returning to the same UC campus (after attending a community college) is
considered a "readmit" and cannot use IGETC. However, students who initially enroll at a UC, attend a community college and return to a
different UC campus, may be able to use IGETC, but should check with the campus they wish to attend. This restriction does not apply to
students who have taken UC summer session or Extension classes only.
Certification: The "Request for Certification" form is available and can be filed in the Admissions & Records Office. Berkeley City College
(Peralta Community College District) can certify either full certification (completion of all requirements in each subject-area) or partial
certification (maximum of two courses missing and completed after transfer). Students are responsible for completing minimum admission
requirements for the CSU and UC systems if partially certified. Note: UC Berkeley’s College of Letters & Science requires full certification of
IGETC (See a counselor for details). Once certification is completed student records (transcript) will reflect the full or partial certification of
IGETC. Students should request certification when a final transcript is requested to be sent to their choice of CSU or UC, the term prior to
transfer. Students who transfer without certification will have to meet the general education requirements of the specific UC or CSU to
which they are transferring. This may require completion of additional courses after transfer.
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 IGETC 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 IGETC as long as
the courses are determined to meet IGETC course standards. Except for courses from other California Community Colleges’ IGETC,
coursework from other institutions will not be used to fulfill the Critical Thinking requirement, Area 1B (See a counselor for more
information).
Students are encouraged to see a counselor by appointment to discuss transfer and the IGETC option as part of an education plan.
Counselors are available by appointment through the Counseling Office.
