Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Certificates and Degrees by Area

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

The University of California has an American Institutions (AI) requirement that is separate from IGETC requirements. Courses indicated by *** will satisfy the AI requirement but may not also satisfy the area in which it is listed. An additional course must be completed to satisfy the general education requirement for that area. See ** below for additional instructions on completing the AI requirement.

Students must file an application for IGETC certification and are urged to apply for the IGETC UC Version Certificate of Achievement with evaluators in the Admissions and Records Office immediately upon completion of IGETC coursework. Evaluators may be reach be selecting “Student Services on the college home page, www.deltacollege.edu and selecting “Evaluators”.

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.

IGETC may not be the best choice to satisfy general education requirements for majors that require extensive lower division major preparation. See a counselor or consult www.universityofcalifornia.edu/admissions/ http://www.universityofcalifornia.edu/admissions/ or www.assist.org for additional IGETC considerations.

** Students using the IGETC pattern for transfer to a UC campus may have satisfied the American Institutions requirement through high school coursework. Satisfactory completion in high school of a one-year course in U.S. History, or a half-year course in American Government, satisfies this requirement at all UC campuses except UC Santa Barbara, which requires a college level course. UCLA requires that the student must have earned a “B” average in these high school courses. Students who did not satisfy the AI requirement through high school coursework may do so by taking any course indicated by *** on the IGETC. Students must take an additional course in the same IGETC area as the AI requirement to satisfy the area general education requirement. It is highly recommended that you consult a Counselor to ensure successful transfer.

*** Courses which satisfy the American Institutions Requirement. These courses may not also be used to satisfy IGETC area.

+ Transfer credit may be limited by UC. Students should consult counselor or visit www.assist.org for additional information.
