Certificate in CSUGE

This certificate is designed for students planning to transfer to the California State University (CSU) System. It offers students a program of study which meets the CSU General Education requirements. Although the certificate recognizes the completion of lower division CSU general education requirements, it does not guarantee admission to a specific campus within the CSU system nor does it guarantee admission to a specific major. Some majors and colleges may require a different lower division preparation and/or a higher GPA than is necessary for this certificate.

Students who intend to transfer must meet all current CSU admissions requirements for transfer. Students are strongly advised to meet with a counselor to discuss transfer requirements and lower division major preparation that is needed for their intended transfer school.

For a list of all CSUGE requirements, see General Education Requirements for Transfer to CSU (CSUGE): Option II.
