CSU General Education
As part of a bachelor's degree, all CSU students must meet the general education requirements which includes 39 semester units of lower-division (GE-Breadth). Meet with a Counselor to receive more information about GE and determine which GE option is best for you.
Students transferring to a CSU are advised to select 1 of the following GE patterns:
IGETC is ideal for students applying for admission to UC, CSU and/or
private institutions, & earning a transfer degree for CSU (ADT or AA-T or AS-T)
GENERAL EDUCATION (GE) CERTIFICATION
Students who plan to transfer in low-unit majors (i.e., non-STEM majors) are encouraged to complete & have certified one of the patterns above.
Make an appointment with a Counselor for GE certification
- when petitioning for a transfer degree (ADT) or
- upon notification of admission from a four-year institution.
Many campuses request GE certification as a requisite to register for classes and graduate in a timely manner.
