INTERSEGMENTAL GENERAL EDUCATION TRANSFER CURRICULUM
CERTIFICATION AND CERTIFICATE OF ACHIEVEMENT REQUIREMENTS
The Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) is a general education program which allows California Community College
students to fulfill lower-division general education (GE) requirements for either the CSU or UC system without the need, after transfer, to take
additional lower-division GE requirements. SIXTY (60) UC TRANSFERABLE UNITS of Major and GE courses with a grade of “C” (or P) are required
for transfer. Transfer students should: (1) meet with a counselor to create an EDUCATIONAL PLAN that will assist in identifying appropriate major
and GE requirements; (2) request an IGETC CERTIFICATION (when final transcripts are requested) to be sent to the transfer institution; and (3)
with a counselor’s assistance, determine eligibility for an Associate’s Degree and/or an Associate’s Degree for Transfer. FULL CERTIFICATION
(completion of all areas), PARTIAL CERTIFICATION (completion of all but 2 courses), and IGETC FOR STEM CERTIFICATION (for BIO AS-T only) are
available. Please see Page 3 for certification details. All courses are 3 units unless otherwise noted. Completion of the pattern also satisfies
requirements for Certificate of Achievement in Transfer Studies.

IGETC Requirements, 2020-2021, Page 3
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT IGETC
IS IGETC RIGHT FOR ME?
Maybe.
The IGETC is advisable for students who have not yet decided on a major or a particular campus and who want to keep their
options open before making a final decision about transferring to either a UC or CSU campus. IGETC is not advisable for students who
choose majors with substantial lower division prerequisites, such as engineering or science. See chart below.
DO I HAVE TO COMPLETE IGETC TO TRANSFER TO A CSU OR UC?
No.
The IGETC is not a requirement for transfer to CSU or most UCs (check with www.uctransfer.org for exceptions), nor is it the only way
to fulfill the lower-division, general education requirements. Depending on a student's major, the student may find it better to take courses
fulfilling the CSU's General Education requirements or those of the UC campus or college to which the student plans to transfer.
I HAVE COMPLETED COURSES AT OTHER COLLEGES. WILL THEY COUNT TOWARD IGETC?
Yes.
Courses that are completed at any US regionally accredited college can be used in the IGETC certification. Students should be aware,
however, that coursework from other California community colleges will be applied in the IGETC category determined by the original
college. Courses taken at a foreign institution not accredited by a US regionally accrediting association are NOT permitted for certification
on the IGETC.
WILL THE COURSES I TAKE AS TRANSFER REQUIREMENTS FOR MY MAJOR BE COUNTED TOWARD IGETC?
Yes
. UC will allow requirements completed as preparation for the major to be used in the IGETC whenever they appear, unless otherwise
noted on ASSIST.
I HAVE PASSED AN AP OR IB TEST. CAN MY TEST SCORES BE USED TO SATISFY AN IGETC REQUIREMENT?
Yes.
AP scores of 3 or higher can be used to satisfy any IGETC subject area except Critical Thinking and Oral Communication. Even though
credit for more than one course can be awarded by Mission College for AP scores of 3 or higher, only one course in the subject for which
the AP test was taken can be used on the IGETC. And a score of 5, 6 or 7 on Higher Level exams can grant credit for IGETC certification.
Please see the Mission College catalog for specific credit information. CLEP, SAT or ACT exams cannot be used.
DO COURSES COMPLETED NEED A MINIMUM GRADE FOR CERTIFICATION?
Yes.
Only grades of “C” or better will be accepted and Pass/No Pass courses are acceptable only if the college catalog defines credit as
equivalent to a letter grade of “C” or better (as it does at Mission). A “C-” grade valued at less than 2.0 grade points on a 4.0 scale cannot
be used for IGETC certification
HOW DO I COMPLETE THE IGETC?
The IGETC can be certified for California community college transfers who have also completed transfer units at a CSU, UC or independent
college provided that the student has completed most of the transfer units at one or more California community colleges. Students who
initially enroll at a UC campus, then leave and attend a community college, and subsequently return to the same campus are considered
readmits” by the University and cannot use the IGETC. However, students who enroll at a UC campus, then leave and attend a
community college, and subsequently return to a different UC campus may be able to use the
IGETC, but students need to check with the
campus they wish to attend.
WHAT IS IGETC FOR STEM?
IGETC for STEM is a separate IGETC track available for students planning to major in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics
which will allow them to defer all of the following until after transfer:
One course in Area 3
One course in Area 4
One course in Area 6 (for UC bound students who have not satisfied it through proficiency
These deferred lower division courses must be replaced with calculus and/or science courses required by the major
before
transfer. The UC
will accept IGETC for STEM only if a student is earning an Associate Degree for Transfer in Biology or Chemistry at a community college
that offers IGETC for STEM as an option for those degrees. For Mission College, this applies only to the Biology AS-T.
I AM A UC TRANSFER. DO I NEED TO COMPLETE AREA 1C IF I AM PURSUING AN ASSOCIATE DEGREE FOR TRANSFER (AA-T/AS-T)?
Yes
. Although available for all students, the AA-T and AS-Ts are CSU programs and therefore, communication is required. However, if you
are a UC-bound student with no plans on completing 1C, please see the Articulation Officer for an exemption.
WHAT IS PARTIAL CERTIFICATION?
Partial certification is defined as completing all but two (2) courses on the IGETC pattern (Areas 1 and 2 excluded). These two requirements
can be met after transfer with an approved IGETC course from a CCC or a course approved by the UC/CSU campus of attendance from a
US regionally accredited institution.
WHEN DO I CERTIFY THE IGETC?
IGETC certification must be requested in the Records Office prior to transfer. THIS IS NOT AN AUTOMATIC PROCESS! All necessary
documentation (secondary or other college transcripts) must be submitted to the Records Office prior to this request. Valid IGETC courses
must appear on Mission’s IGETC plan the year in which they are taken. Students who leave the college, breaking continuous enrollment,
will be placed under the IGETC plan in effect for the year that they return.
Requirements are subject to change.
Visit the ASSIST website at WWW.ASSIST.ORG for a complete listing of CSU and UC transferable courses as well as updated IGETC and major requirements.
