Certification of CSU GE or IGETC is an important step in the transfer process.
GE Certification is the official notice that verifies a transfer student has completed courses that satisfy lower-division course requirements. The certification is separate from a student transcript.
The request for certification of CSU GE or IGETC is best done at the time you request that your final transcripts be sent to the transfer school.
IGETC, or Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum, is a General Education program that community college transfer students can use to fulfill lower-division course requirements for either the CSU or UC system.
You must complete the entire IGETC and have it certified at Mission College in order to have it accepted as meeting the lower-division General Education requirements at your transfer institution. The IGETC General Education pattern may not be right for all UC campuses.
