General Education:

In addition to the courses listed above, students must complete one of the general education options listed on page 71 of the College Catalog.

The IGETC pattern (page 93) is accepted by all CSU campuses and most UC campuses and majors. It is also accepted by some private/independent or out of state universities.

The CSU GE pattern (page 100) is accepted by all CSU campuses and some private/independent or out of state universities. It is not accepted by the
UC system.

The San Diego Community College District General Education pattern (page 76) may be appropriate for students transferring to a private/independent or out of state university or to a high-unit major. Students selecting this option should meet with a counselor to determine the appropriate General Education courses for their individual transfer goals.

It is strongly recommended that students consult with a counselor to determine which general education option is most appropriate for their
individual educational goals.
