Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum
for the CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY SYSTEM (CSU)
or the UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA SYSTEM (UC)
2020-2021
CSU:
Bakersfield, Channel Islands, Chico, Dominguez Hills, East Bay, Fresno, Fullerton, Humboldt, Long Beach, Los
Angeles, Maritime Academy, Monterey Bay, Northridge, Pomona, Sacramento, San Bernardino, San Diego, San
Francisco, San Jose, San Luis Obispo, San Marcos, Sonoma, Stanislaus.
UC:
Berkeley, Davis, Irvine, Los Angeles, Merced, Riverside, San Diego, San Francisco, Santa Barbara, Santa Cruz.
What is the IGETC (Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum)?
The Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) is a general education program that community college
prospective transfer students may complete to satisfy the lower division general education requirements for either the UC (University of
California) or CSU (California State University) system without the need to take additional lower-division general education courses after
transfer.
All IGETC coursework must be completed with a “C” or better. Courses in which a student receives a “pass” grade may be used if the
community college’s policy states that a “pass” is equivalent to a “C” grade (2.0) or better. The UC system allows a maximum of 14
semester units (of the 60 required, transferable units) on a Pass/No Pass basis. There is no CSU system-wide policy on limitations for
a “pass” grade, therefore each CSU campus has its own established policy (please check with your CSU campus of choice). Courses
may only be used once to satisfy one IGETC subject area (even if listed under multiple areas), however, courses may be used to satisfy
IGETC general education areas AND major preparation requirements. Major preparation requirements can be accessed at
www.assist.org, the official source for California articulation and student transfer information.
The IGETC is NOT an admission requirement to the UC or CSU system. There is no connection between completion of the IGETC
and eligibility for admission to the UC or CSU system, or admission to a specific campus or program. Existing segmental and campus-
specific admission requirements for transfer students remain unchanged. Requirements for lower-division courses for admission to
particular majors also remain unchanged. The IGETC plan will total approximately 34-37 transferable units. A recommended total
minimum of 60 units must be completed prior to transfer, for priority admission status.
If you are approaching readiness for transfer and are unable to complete one or two IGETC courses, you may be eligible for partial
certification (and complete IGETC after transferring). “Certification” means that WLAC has verified that a student has completed the
lower division General Education requirements listed in each area of the IGETC. Certification does not guarantee admission or
admission eligibility. Certification is not required and is not automatic; it must be requested by the student at the time the final official
transcript is sent. A student may only be granted IGETC certification once (either partial or complete) prior to their first semester at the
4-year university. Students receiving partial certification must ensure that admission criteria for the university has been met (IGETC
areas I and II). Students may complete the necessary coursework at the transfer institution and may NOT return to the Community
College for complete certification if partial certification was granted. Without certification, the student will be held to the specific general
education requirements of the university campus of choice. Please note, the UC Berkeley, College of Letters and Science does not
accept partial Certification.
Courses taken at regionally accredited institutions may be used to fulfill IGETC. Students should be aware that placement of courses
within IGETC subject areas vary from college to college. Placement of a course is based on the college of attendance and its IGETC
pattern at the time the course was completed. Completion of the IGETC program may be certified by the last community college, which
the student attends. Foreign coursework (from non-U.S. regionally accredited institutions) may not be used on the IGETC.
It is NOT advisable for all students to follow the IGETC. Some students may be better served by taking courses that fulfill the CSU
General Education Breadth requirements or the general education pattern of the UC or CSU campus or college to which they plan to
transfer. Students pursuing majors that require extensive lower division major preparation, (such as Engineering on all campuses or
Business at UC Berkeley) may not find the IGETC option to be advantageous. The Eleanor Roosevelt College and Revelle College of
UC San Diego do not accept IGETC. Additional lower-division general education requirements may be needed prior to transfer. The
IGETC will be most useful for students who want to keep their options open before making a final decision about transferring
to a particular UC or CSU campus.
Students transferring to the UC should refer to the following website for information on colleges and majors that do not recommend
IGETC or IGETC for STEM Majors: http://www.universityofcalifornia.edu/admissions/counselors/transfer/advising/igetc/inde x.html
The material in this publication has been prepared from the IGETC handouts as carefully as possible.

GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS
The Board of Governors of the California Community
Colleges has authorized the Los Angeles Community
College District Board of Trustees to confer the degrees
of Associate in Arts and Associate in Science.
The awarding of an Associate Degree symbolizes a
successful attempt on the part of the college to lead
students through patterns of learning experiences
designed to develop certain capabilities and insights.
Among these are the ability to think and to communicate
clearly and effectively, both orally and in writing; to use
mathematics; to understand the modes of inquiry in the
major disciplines; to be aware of other cultures and
times; to achieve insights gained through experience in
considering ethical problems; and to develop the capacity
for self-understanding. In addition to these
accomplishments, the student should possess sufficient
depth in some field of knowledge to contribute to a
lifetime interest.
1. Unit Requirement – at least 60 units of course
credit in a selected curriculum. One credit hour of
community college work is approximately three
hours of recitation, study, or laboratory work per
week throughout a term of 16 weeks.
2. Scholarship Requirement – A 2.0 GPA or better in
all work attempted in the curriculum upon which the
degree is based.
3. Residence Requirement – Completion of at least
12 units of course work in residence and
attendance at the College during the semester in
which the graduation requirements are completed.
Exceptions may be made under special
circumstances.
4.
Course Requirements –The Graduation Plan is
outlined in the West Los Angeles College General
Education Requirements worksheet and a list of
majors can be found at the end of the “Academics”
section.

2019 or later may meet competency by verifying earning a
grade of C- or higher in Algebra 2 or equivalent or higher at a
US regionally accredited high school or college, or through
other means as defined below.
I. The competency requirements for the Associate of Arts
(AA) and Associate of Science (AS) Degrees are met by
the following criteria.
Mathematics Competency
The competency requirement in mathematics for the
Associate Degree may be met by completion of any of
the following:
1) Verification of passing with a grade of C or P or higher
any course from a California Community College
with a California Community College Chancellor’s
Office (CCCCO) Course Basic (CB) Code of “One
Level Below Transfer” or higher with a TOP code
beginning with 17, or
2) Verification of passing with a grade of C- or higher a
mathematics course at or above the level of the
course typically known as Intermediate Algebra or
the equivalent from any United States regionally
accredited secondary or post-secondary institution.
3) Verification of passing with a grade of C or P or
higher a California Community College course that
meets the California State University General
Education Breadth (CSUGE Breadth) requirement
in Area B4: Mathematics/Quantitative Reasoning
and/or the Intersegmental General Education
Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) in Area 2A:
Mathematical Concepts and Quantitative
Reasoning.
4) Achieving a satisfactory score (using a DAS-
approved scoring-method) on a DAS-approved
District Mathematics Competency Examination.
5) Achieving a satisfactory score on an external
examination (such as, but not limited to an
Advanced Placement Exam) as specified in LACCD
Administrative Regulations.
Written Expression Competency
The competency requirement in written expression
for the Associate Degree may be met by completion
of any of the following:
1) Verification of passing with a grade of C or P or
higher Freshman Composition from any
California Community College or the equivalent
Graduation Requirements
WEST LOS ANGELES COLLEGE | 2018 - 2020 CATALOG 58
from any United States regionally accredited
institution with a grade of C- or higher.
2) Verification of passing with a grade of C or P or
higher a California Community College course
that meets the California State University
General Education Breadth (CSUGE Breadth)
requirement in Area A2: Written Communication
and/or the Intersegmental General Education
Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) in Area 1A:
English Composition.
3) Achieving a satisfactory score on an external
examination (such as, but not limited to an
Advanced Placement Exam) as specified in
LACCD Administrative Regulations.
Catalog rights
Students who maintain continuous catalog
rights (as defined in Board Rule 6203) may
satisfy competency according to the
requirements stated in college catalogs
pursuant to relevant Board Rules and
Administrative Regulations from the first term
under those rights until the term all graduation
requirements have been met or any intervening
term.
II.
The District Curriculum Committee shall establish
whether a course meets the competency requirement
as established in this administrative regulation.
Requirements for a Second Associate of Arts
or Associate of Science Degree
A student who contemplates acquiring a second
associate degree should discuss this matter with a
counselor to determine whether the student’s goal would
better be met by either a baccalaureate degree or
occupational certificate, or whether acquisition of a
second associate degree meets a bona fide occupational
requirement.
Transfer Requirements
(See Associate Degrees for Transfer)
Students who plan to earn a bachelor’s degree should
take a pattern of courses designed to complete the
lower-division preparation for their major and the general
education pattern of the college to which they will
transfer.
Students also have the option of choosing to follow the
Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum
(IGETC) for CSU or UC campuses, or the CSU
certification requirements which will enable them to
complete their lower-division general education courses
at West Los Angeles College. West Los Angeles College
can provide lower-division preparation for various majors
at most California public and private four-year
institutions.
For the purposes of classification, students who are
paralleling the work of four-year colleges and universities
are deemed to be “transfer students.”
Two principal kinds of requirements must be met in order
to attain full junior standing at the University of California
or other institutions maintaining equivalent standards to
which students expect to transfer:
1. Completion of the specific requirement for junior
standing in the proposed college or university; or
2. Completion of the lower-division prerequisites for
upper division majors and minors. Prerequisites
vary according to the institution of higher education
in which students expect to enroll.
NOTE: Students expecting to transfer to four-year
institutions should visit the Transfer Center and consult
the catalogs of transfer institutions regarding specific
requirements for
upper-division standing.
Student Responsibility for Meeting Transfer
Requirements
Students are strongly advised to gather as much
information as possible about their chosen transfer
college or university. The Transfer Center will assist
students with the transfer process, including appropriate
course selection and information regarding the admission
process and requirements. However, it is up to each
individual student—working with a counselor—to decide
upon an educational goal, to take responsibility for
devising a long-range educational plan to achieve this
goal, to read the catalog of his or her chosen transfer
institution, and then to choose the appropriate West Los
Angeles College courses to satisfy the requirements for
transfer to that college or university.
Courses Which May Be Used in IGETC or CSU plans:
1. Courses that are required for the major may also be
used for general education.
2. A course found in more than one area may be
counted only once.
Graduation Requirements
WEST LOS ANGELES COLLEGE | 2018 - 2020 CATALOG 59
Summer 2019 Update
3. Courses taken at other California Community
Colleges are counted only in the area(s) where they
are listed at that college.
4. Courses taken at a foreign institution may not be
used on the UC/CSU Certified Plan.
5. Courses required for the major must be completed
with a grade of “C” or higher.
California State University (CSU) Certification
of General Education Requirements
Under agreement with the California State University
system, West Los Angeles College can certify up to 39
units toward the general education requirements for a
baccalaureate degree at any one of the campuses in the
State University system. Under this certification process,
the receiving college will accept the units certified toward
completion of the general education requirements as the
institution prescribes them. The college to which the
student transfers would agree neither to reduce this
number nor to question the units certified. It is important
for the student to follow the required patterns as listed
below and to take courses in as many different areas as
possible. Students planning to transfer should consult
with a counselor concerning these general education
requirements as soon as they have determined the
college they wish to attend, as the requirements are
periodically revised.
NOTE: Every community college may apply its courses
differently even if the course has the same title and
number. See a counselor, particularly if taking courses
elsewhere in the Los Angeles Community College District
(LACCD). Areas A1, A2, A3 and B4 must be completed
with a grade of “C-” or better before transfer to a CSU.
Please refer to the California State University (CSU)
worksheet at the end of this section.
Intersegmental General Education Transfer
Curriculum (IGETC)
The Intersegmental General Education Transfer
Curriculum (IGETC) is a general education program that
community college transfer students may use to fulfill
lower-division general education requirements in either
the UC or the CSU system without the need, after
transfer, to take additional lower-division general
education courses. The IGETC pattern is most useful for
students who want to keep their options open before
making a final decision about transferring to a particular
UC or CSU campus. Completion of IGETC does NOT
guarantee admission, nor is it required for admission.
Students may be better served by taking courses that
fulfill the CSU General Education-Breadth requirements
or the requirements of the UC campus or other college to
which they plan to transfer. Students pursuing majors
that require extensive lower-division major preparation
may not find the IGETC option to be advantageous.
Engineering, Architecture, and Liberal Studies are
examples of those majors. UC San Diego Colleges of
Roosevelt and Revelle, UC Berkeley Haas School of
Business and College of Environmental Design
(Architecture & Landscape Architecture majors) will not
accept the IGETC. Schools of Engineering do not
generally recommend the IGETC. Before selecting any
courses, please see a counselor for assistance in
planning your program.
GPA Requirement
IGETC courses must be completed with a grade of C
(2.0) or higher. A “Credit” or “Pass” that is defined by
institutional policy as being equivalent to a grade of C
(2.0) or higher may be applied to meet IGETC
requirements.
Use of AP Exams
IGETC course credit may be earned for scores of 3, 4 or
5 on Advanced Placement (AP) exams that the
community college faculty recognize as equivalent to its
IGETC-approved courses. An acceptable score on an
English AP exam may be used to meet the English
Composition requirement, not the Critical Thinking/
English Composition requirement.
Proficiency in a Language Other Than English
Students may demonstrate proficiency for the purpose of
fulfilling the Language Other Than English IGETC
requirement in one of the following ways:
Complete two years of high school coursework in
one language other than English with a grade of C
or better. Student must provide official transcripts
from High School.
Complete a course at a college or university with a
grade of C or better in each course. Refer to IGETC
Area 6 for courses.
Achieve a satisfactory score on the SAT Subject
Test in languages other than English. If the test was
taken before May 1995, the first score is the
minimum; if the test was taken after May 1995, use
the second score.

Baccalaureate (IB) Higher Level Examination in a

Satisfactorily complete a proficiency test
administered by a community college, university or
other college in a language other than English. The
test must assess the student proficiency at a level
equivalent to at least two years of high school
language.
Complete, with grades of C or better, two years of
formal schooling at the sixth-grade level or higher in
an institution where the language of instruction is
not English. If secondary school was completed in a
non-English-speaking country and the language of
instruction of the secondary school was not English,
language other than English proficiency can be
certified for IGETC without further evaluation. The
student must present appropriate documentation of
attendance at the secondary school.
Earn a passing grade on the international A level or
O level exam in a language other than English.
If an appropriate achievement test is not available
to assert a student’s proficiency in a language other
than English, a faculty member associated with a
California community college can verify
competency. The college must provide a document
on letterhead asserting that the student proficiency
in the language is equivalent to two years of high
school study.
IGETC Considerations
Students with a substantial amount of coursework from
institutions outside the United States should consult with
a West Los Angeles College counselor to determine
whether they should complete IGETC or the lower-
division breadth/general education requirements at the
campus they plan to attend.
Foreign coursework from non-US regionally accredited
institutions may not be used.
In addition, some colleges or majors prefer that transfer
students follow a more prescribed lower-division
curriculum.
Certification
Certification guarantees that no additional lower-division
general education courses can be imposed on a student
as a condition of graduation. “Certified” community
college students are deemed to have satisfied the lower-
division general education requirements of their chosen
transfer institution. “Uncertified” UC and CSU transfer
students will have their transfer coursework applied to
the graduation requirements of their new UC or CSU
campus, but will find that they must complete lower
division, general education units than are required of a
“certified” transfer. For this reason, “fully certified”
transfer is strongly recommended.
Courses completed at a California Community College
will be applied to the subject area in which they were
listed by the institution where the work was completed.
Coursework from other United States regionally
accredited institutions may be used on IGETC OR CSU
G.E. Coursework must be evaluated by a counselor.
Requirements should be completed and certified prior to
transfer. West Los Angeles College will verify that the
student has completed the IGETC requirements prior to
transfer to the UC or CSU system. It is the student’s
responsibility to request IGETC or CSU G.E certification
during the last semester of attendance.
Partial certification is defined as completing all but two
(2) courses on the IGETC pattern. The student petitions
for certification and either the complete or partial
certification is sent by the CCC to the UC or CSU. Each
UC or CSU campus will inform a student that has
submitted a partial certified IGETC of the specific
timelines and courses needed to complete the IGETC.
The UC or CSU is responsible for verifying that the
missing IGETC course(s) has been completed.
Warning: Students need Area 1 and 2 completed to meet
minimum transfer admission requirements. Therefore,
partial certification that acknowledges a deficiency in
Area 1 and/or 2 may also indicate a student
does not
meet minimum transfer requirements.
IGETC Certification
All IGETC coursework MUST be completed before a
student’s transfer to receive complete IGETC
Certification. Students may be partially certified under the
IGETC pattern if they are missing no more than two
courses from the IGETC pattern.
CSU Certification
The California State University (CSU) system will extend
Full Certification to students who have completed all
sections of the CSU General Education Pattern. Partial
Certification is awarded for completion of any of the five
general education subsections. CSU Certification should
be requested during your last semester.
