Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum for STEM 2017-2018


Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum for STEM

Completion of the IGETC permits a student to transfer from Merced College to a campus in either the California State University or the University of California system without the need after transfer to take additional, lower division, general education courses to satisfy the campus GE requirements. IGETC is not recommended for majors that require extensive lower division preparation. All courses must be completed with a grade of C or better. Consult with your counselor. Students may also fulfill the general education requirements by completing the specific lower division breadth and general education requirements of the school or college of the campus to which the student intends to transfer. Students intending to transfer to the California State University System may also complete the requirement by fulfilling the CSU’s general education requirement.

Completion of the IGETC will not satisfy the American Institutions requirement. Courses used to satisfy the American Institutions requirement may not be counted to satisfy either a Humanities or a Social and Behavioral Science requirement.
