GLENDALE COMMUNITY COLLEGE

Intersegmental General Education
Transfer Curriculum

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 University of California system without the need, after transfer, to take additional lower-division, general education courses to satisfy campus general education requirements.
Completion of the IGETC is not a requirement for transfer to a CSU or UC, nor is it the only way to fulfill the lower division, general education requirements of the CSU or UC prior to transfer. Students may find it advantageous to take courses fulfilling CSU’s general education requirements or those of a particular UC campus.
The course requirements for all areas must be completed before the IGETC can be certified. All courses must be completed with grades of “C’’ or better.

This certificate does not satisfy the major requirements for the Associate in Science degree.
