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 includes 11 courses (34 semester units) in the following subjects:
- English communication
- Mathematical concepts and quantitative reasoning
- Arts and humanities
- Social and behavioral sciences
- Physical and biological sciences
- Language other than English
IGETC is not an admission requirement, and not all UC campuses recommend fulfilling IGETC for all majors. Consult the major-preparation paths and assist.org to determine whether IGETC is a good option for you and what courses at your community college fulfill IGETC requirements. Learn more about IGETC.
