This certificate is designed for the student who intends to transfer to a California State University (CSU). 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. Students completing the CSU general education pattern will also 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 Services>Admissions, Records & Registration>Evaluations.
The CSU system has an American Institutions (AI) graduation requirement that is separate from CSU GE requirements and is not required for CSU GE certification. It is recommended that students complete this requirement prior to transfer. See information below about how to satisfy this requirement.
Students are encouraged to consult with a counselor to develop a Student Education Plan. Counseling appointments may be scheduled online from the Delta College Homepage, www.deltacollege.edu by selecting Services>Counseling & Special Services. 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.
