WEST LOS ANGELES COLLEGE
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
