Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC)

The Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) is a general education program that community college transfer students may use to fulfill lower-division general education requirements in either the UC or the CSU system without the need, after transfer, to take additional lower-division general education courses. The IGETC pattern is 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. Completion of IGETC does NOT guarantee admission, nor is it required for admission.

Some students may be better served by taking courses that fulfill the CSU General Education-Breadth requirements or the requirements of the UC campus or other college to which they plan to transfer. Students pursuing majors that require extensive lower-division major preparation may not find the IGETC option to be advantageous. Engineering, Architecture, and Liberal Studies are examples of those majors. UC San Diego Colleges of Roosevelt and Revelle, UC Berkeley Haas School of Business and College of Environmental Design (Architecture & Landscape Architecture majors) will not accept the IGETC. Schools of Engineering do not generally recommend the IGETC. Before selecting any courses, please see a counselor for assistance in planning your program.

Courses completed at a California Community College will be applied to the subject area in which they were listed by the institution where the work was completed. Coursework from other United States regionally accredited institutions may be used on IGETC. Coursework must be evaluated by a counselor. All courses must be completed with a grade of C (2.0) or higher. A “Credit” or “Pass” that is defined by institutional policy as being equivalent to a grade of C (2.0) or higher may be applied to meet IGETC requirements. Foreign coursework from non-US regionally accredited institutions may not be used. Course credit earned on the basis of acceptable scores on Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) exams can be applied toward IGETC certification (see the charts at the end of this chapter for a list of acceptable AP/IB courses and scores.)

IGETC Certification

The IGETC requirements should be completed and certified prior to transfer. “Certification” means that the last California Community College a student attended for a regular term (Fall or Spring for semester schools or Fall, Winter, Spring for quarter schools) prior to transfer to the UC or CSU system will verify that the student has completed the IGETC requirements. It is the student’s responsibility to request IGETC certification during the last semester of attendance at SMC prior to transfer. Requests for IGETC certification may be filed in the Admissions Office from:

   •   January 1 to July 31 for the Spring semester, and

   •   October 1 to December 1 for the Fall semester.

Before petitioning for IGETC certification, students are strongly urged to consult with their SMC counselor and verify that they have fulfilled their IGETC requirements.

Some private and out-of-state colleges and universities will accept the completed igetc to meet their lower-division general education requirements. Click here for a list of schools.

IGETC Checklist

A summary of requirements for IGETC certification is listed below.

   1.   The institution is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges or an equivalent accrediting body.

   2.   A course taken at a California Community College is applied to the subject area in which it is listed by the institution where the work was completed (check www.assist.org for college IGETC lists).

   3.   Coursework from other US regionally accredited institutions may be used on IGETC. Coursework must be evaluated by a counselor.

   4.   The grade received in course is C (2.0) or higher. A grade of C- (C minus) is not acceptable. A “Credit” or “Pass” that is defined by institutional policy as being equivalent to a grade of C (2.0) or higher may be applied to IGETC requirements.

   5.   Foreign coursework from non-United States regionally accredited institutions cannot be used for IGETC.

   6.   Each course is a minimum of 3 semester or 4 quarter units. (Exceptions may be made for English Composition or math. See a counselor for details.)

   7.   All courses that meet IGETC requirements are completed by the end of the semester that the student is petitioning for certification.

Petitions for IGETC certification may be filed in the Admissions Office from January 1 through July 31 for the Spring semester and October 1 through December 1 for students planning to complete requirements during the Fall semester. Certification petitions are available on those dates online (go to www.smc.edu/StudentServices/Admissions/Pages/Forms.aspx) and in the Admissions Office. Requests for certification will be processed ONLY during those periods.

NOTE: Roosevelt and Revelle Colleges at UC San Diego, the School of Business at UC Berkeley, the College of Environmental Design (Architecture & Landscape Architecture majors) at UC Berkeley, and the College of Engineering at UC Riverside will not accept IGETC. In addition, some students may be better served by taking courses that fulfill the CSU General Education-Breadth Pattern, or that meet requirements for the specific general education pattern of the UC campus or college to which the students plan to transfer. Students pursuing majors that require extensive lower-division major preparation may not find the IGETC option advantageous. Engineering, Architecture, and Liberal Studies are examples of those majors.

Private and Out-of-State Schools That Accept IGETC

AICU; Alliant International University (formerly United States International University); American University of Paris, France; Arizona State University; Biola University; California College for the Arts; California Lutheran University; Chapman University; City University of London, England; Cogswell Polytechnical College; Concordia University; Dominican College of San Rafael; Hawaii Pacific University; Holy Names College; JFK University; John Cabot University, Rome, Italy; Menlo College; National University; Northern Arizona University; Notre Dame de Namur University (formerly College of Notre Dame); Oregon State University; Saint Mary’s College of California; Scripps College; Southern University – Baton Rouge (LA); University of La Verne; University of Northern Colorado; University of San Francisco; University of the Pacific; University of the West; Vanguard University of Southern California; and Woodbury University.

A score of 5, 6, or 7 on Higher Level (HL) exams is required to grant credit for IGETC certification.

An acceptable IB score for IGETC equates to either 3 semester or 4 quarter units for certification purposes.

Students who have earned credit for an IB exam should not take a comparable college course because transfer credit will not be granted for both.

Applying INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE (IB) Credit to IGETC

A score of 5, 6, or 7 on Higher Level (HL) exams is required to grant credit for IGETC certification.

An acceptable IB score for IGETC equates to 4 quarter (3 semester) units for certification purposes.

For transfer purposes, UC will grant 8 quarter (5.3 semester) units for each IB exam completed with a score of 5, 6, or 7 on HL exams.

CSU also grants unit credit for transfer purposes of IB HL exams. See the “International Baccalaureate (IB) Exam in CSU GE” chart (Figure 2-5) for details.

Students who have earned credit for an IB exam should not take a comparable college course because transfer credit will NOT be granted for both.

See the “International Baccalaureate (IB) Exam on IGETC” chart (Figure 2-6) for a list of the IB exams that may be used on the IGETC pattern.

Applying Advanced Placement (AP) Credit to IGETC

   •   AP credit for the following exams—with a score of 3 or higher—may be applied to IGETC. Each exam satisfies one course.

   •   An acceptable AP score in Biology, Chemistry, or Physics B equates to 4 semester or 5 quarter units for certification purposes. UC or CSU may award more units toward the minimum needed to transfer. For details, see a counselor or UC/CSU Outreach representative.

   •   *Students who use AP Environmental Science, Physics C: Mechanics, or Physics C: Electricity/Magnetism will receive 3 semester units toward Area 5A. Therefore, student will need to complete 5B and a total of 7 semester/9 quarter units to satisfy Area 5.

   •   College courses, including SMC courses, with similar content to an AP exam may yield transfer credit. Unit and subject credit is determined by each transfer institution. For details, see a counselor or UC/CSU Outreach representative.

   •   Official transcripts/scores and Advanced Placement (AP) scores must be on file with SMC’s Admissions Office.

See the “Advanced Placement (AP) Examination on IGETC” chart (Figure 2-6) at the end of this chapter for a list of the AP exams that may be used on the IGETC pattern.

UC Unit Limitations

   •   A maximum of 4 Physical Education units are UC transferable.

   •   Students who complete any part of their education between 9th and 12th grade at an institution where the language of instruction is other than English, will not receive UC unit credit for courses taken at SMC or an AP exam in that same language.

Courses with UC Unit Limitations

   •   Some courses offered at SMC have transfer unit limitations, which are noted beneath the course descriptions listed in this catalog, as well as in the Schedule of Classes and online (go to www.assist.org).
