IGETC / CSU GE CERTIFICATION

If you have been admitted to the UC or CSU for Fall 2016, it is in your best interest to request IGETC or CSU General Education certification. Complete this form and submit to Admissions & Records. Read below for any required attachments.

Is IGETC / CSU GE certification required for admission?

IGETC / CSU GE certification is NOT required unless you have applied to the UC and indicated on your application that you are following/completing the IGETC. Once you are admitted to the UC, IGETC certification becomes part of your conditions of admission.

 What is the benefit of getting IGETC / CSU GE certified?

By completing certification and having the certification on file at your transfer institution, your UC or CSU school will have proof that you have completed all lower division general education requirements, and you will not be required to fulfill the school’s local general education/breadth requirements. This could save you having to take an additional course or two.

Do I need to meet with a Counselor to file for certification?

No. You simply need to complete the form and submit it to A&R. If you’re using high school language courses to fulfill the IGETC Language Other Than English requirement, then you must submit an official high school transcript with the form (unless the transcript is already on file). If you are using non-Peralta coursework to fulfill any of the IGETC or CSU GE courses, then you must attach an official transcript from that school(s) (unless the transcript is already on file at the District).

If I filed for an Associate Degree in Transfer (ADT), should I still file for IGETC or CSU GE certification?

It is in the best interest of a student who will be attending a CSU campus to file for GE certification even if s/he has filed for an ADT. If the student does not fulfill the ADT agreement, such as changing a major while at the CSU, then the certification ensures the student will not have to complete additional lower division general education requirements.

What is the deadline for certification?

The UC campuses generally have a July 15th or 30th deadline for certification. Please refer your admission letter/instructions for the actual date. Certification can take between 4-6 weeks to process.

 

DEADLINE EXTENDED: Scholarship-Faculty Senate-April 11th

The deadline to submit the application for the Faculty Senate Scholarship has been extended to Monday, April 11, 2016. To apply, download the application here.

If you have any questions, please email tilarde@peralta.edu.

And remember…all Peralta colleges are closed on Thursday, March 31st.
