CSU GE (California State University General Education)

Specific courses which satisfy certain areas of lower division general education and required for admission and/or graduation from a California State University. You may obtain a GE sheet at the Transfer Center, Counseling, or from your counselor.

GE certification is done by Admissions and Records and can be requested when you request your official transcripts on the Transcript Request form.

Golden Four 

Four specific areas (area A, sections 1,2, and 3 AND area B, section 3) on the CSU GE sheet that must be fulfilled before you will be accepted by a California State University.

IGETC (Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum)

Specific courses which satisfy certain areas of lower division general education, in certain majors, required for admission and/or graduation from a University of California campus. IGETC certification requires a counseling appointment ( it is NOT automatic) and is usually done the semester prior to transfer.

After it is written, the IGETC certification is processed and sent to Admissions and Records where it can be requested when you request your official transcript on the Transcript Request form. Please remember that IGETC certification is not for all majors at UC. Ask your counselor if IGETC is the correct pattern for you to follow.
