Are you Transferring and Ready to be Certified?#
General Education (GE) is one of the key components of earning your Associate degree
or transferring to a four-year institution. A GE certification is an official document
from SDCCD which certifies that a student, who is transferring to a four year institution,
has met the requirements of a particular GE pattern.
Two Types of GE Patterns for Certification#
Requirements for GE Certification:
- A request for certification can only be submitted once a student has been accepted
to a transferring university.
- All transcripts from previous colleges and universities attended must be on file.
See the Transcript section for detailed information.
- Students with AP/IB/CLEP exams must submit scores if they are using them to meet requirements.
Information on the use of Standardized Tests scores for credit and certification requirements
can be found in the catalog.
- If students are using high school coursework to satisfy the UC IGETC Certification
foreign language requirement, the high school transcripts must be on file. Unofficial
hs transcripts can be accepted.
- If students have had two years of formal schooling at the sixth grade level or higher
in an institution where the language of instruction is not English, they may also
satisfy the UC IGETC Certification foreign language requirement by providing official
or unofficial transcripts/diploma from that school.
