Certificate in IGETC - Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum

The Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) is a pattern of courses that California community college students can follow to satisfy lower-division requirements at any California State University (CSU) or University of California (UC) campus. In addition, completion of IGETC qualifies students to receive a Certificate of Achievement from Citrus College.

Students should be aware that additional courses are often required to fully satisfy the General Education requirements of the particular UC or CSU campus to which they transfer. IGETC is not advisable for all transfer students. Students should meet with a counselor to determine the appropriate general education option for their transfer goal.

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.

For a list of all IGETC requirements, see General Education Requirements for Transfer to CSU or UC (IGETC): Option III.

Total Units 35-52
