This certificate is designed for the student who intends to transfer to a California State University. Certification of completion of this certificate of achievement will fulfill lower division General Education Requirements at all CSU campuses and eliminate the need to complete additional lower division general education requirements at the transfer campus. Each candidate for the bachelor’s degree from a California State University (CSU) institution shall complete a pattern of forty-eight (48) semester units of general education courses in addition to courses in American History and Institutions. A student may complete a maximum of thirty-nine (39) of the forty-eight (48) units at San Joaquin Delta College. The San Joaquin Delta College forty-three (43) unit requirement allows students to meet both the CSU General Education pattern and the CSU’s 40404 requirement for American History and Institutions. Students completing the CSU general education pattern will meet the general education requirements of San Joaquin Delta College’s Associate Degree.

Students must file an application for CSU-GE certification and are urged to apply for the CSU-GE Certificate of Achievement with Evaluators at the end of the semester in which all courses have been completed. Contact evaluators from the Delta College homepage, www.deltacollege.edu by selecting “Student Services” and “Evaluations”.
Students are encouraged to consult with a counselor to develop a 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.
Failure to consult with a counselor may unnecessarily delay progress toward transfer.
