IGETC for STEM
The Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) is a series of courses that California community college students may complete to satisfy the lower-division breadth/general education requirements before transfer to the California State University and some colleges and majors at UC campuses.
IGETC for STEM is a separate IGETC track available for students planning to major in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics. UC will accept IGETC for STEM only if:
- you’re earning an associate degree for transfer (ADT) at a California community college that offers IGETC for STEM as an option for those degrees AND
- the UC major program or college you’re applying to accepts partial IGETC certification.
Although IGETC for STEM is an option, you should prioritize completing major-preparation courses for the specific campuses and programs you’re considering.
