Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum - CSU Version (IGETC-CSU), Certificate of Achievement Pattern

This certificate is designed for the student who intends to transfer to the California State University (CSU) System and chooses to complete IGETC to satisfy lower division general education requirements. Completion and certification of the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) CSU version, permits students to transfer from San Joaquin Delta College to a campus of the California State University (CSU) without the need to take additional courses after transfer to satisfy the lower division general education requirements.

The California State University has an American Institutions (AI) requirement that is separate from IGETC requirements. Courses indicated by *** will satisfy the AI requirement. Courses used to satisfy this requirement are listed in IGETC Area 3 and 4. CSU campuses have the discretion whether to allow courses used to satisfy the CSU AI graduation requirement to count in both IGETC areas and to also meet the AI graduation requirement. Students are strongly advised to consult with a counselor or visit assist.org to determine which courses to complete to satisfy the CSU AI requirement. Failure to do so may lead to incorrect course selection and may delay transfer.

Students must file an application for IGETC certification and are urged to also request evaluation for the IGETC CSU Version, Certificate of Achievement with evaluators in the Admissions and Records Office immediately upon completion of IGETC coursework. The Evaluators may be reached by selecting “Student Services” at www.deltacollege.edu and then selecting “Evaluations”.

Selection of courses from this list may be affected by one or more factors, including choice of major, university transfer requirements, or prerequisite or sequencing requirements. Failure to plan appropriately will adversely affect timely graduation and/or transfer. Students are encouraged to consult with a counselor to develop an Student Education Plan. Counseling appointments may be scheduled online by selecting “Counseling Center”, “Make a Counseling Appointment” under “Student Services” on the Delta College Home Page, www.deltacollege.edu. Counseling appointments are not available by phone. The Counseling Center may be reached at (209) 954-5151, ext. 6276 for information regarding other Counseling and support services.
