Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC)
Completion of the IGETC pattern will permit a student to transfer from Delta College to a campus of either the California State University (CSU) or University of California (UC) system without need, after transfer, to take additional lower-division, required general education courses. It should be noted that completion of the IGETC is not a requirement for transfer to CSU or UC, nor is it the only way to fulfill the lower-division general education requirements of CSU or UC prior to transfer. Students pursuing majors that require extensive lower-division preparation may not find the IGETC option appropriate to follow.
Students who plan to transfer to campuses of the California State University system or University of California system are reminded to request certification of their general education courses during the last semester or summer session of attendance and after acceptance to the university. Failure to complete full certification will cause courses to be reviewed differently at each campus. Applications are available in the Evaluations Office, Holt Center, room 101. Students must adhere to the following requirements for certification:
- 1. For students with course work completed at other campuses, the campus of last attendance prior to transfer to CSU or UC will certify the course work. For Delta College to certify this course work an official transcript from each college attended must be on file in the Evaluations Office. Courses taken at other California community colleges will be placed in the IGETC pattern identified by the offering college. Courses taken at other regionally accredited institutions will be placed in the subject areas for which SJDC has equivalent courses. Equivalency is determined by SJDC evaluators or by SJDC faculty teaching the course.
- 2. Course descriptions from prior colleges must accompany the request for IGETC certification.
- 3. Courses completed at foreign institutions are not acceptable except for certification of competence in a language other than English.
- 4. Students requesting IGETC certification must have all official transcripts on file from every high school and college attended prior to requesting certification.
