7 California Independent Colleges and Universities In addition to the public colleges and universities in California, there are many outstanding independent institutions in the state. There are also many private and public colleges located throughout the United States to which GWC students can transfer. Each of these institutions has it own unique requirements for admission. Students may check with a counselor or the Transfer Center for the latest articulation information. Specific information about the requirements and educational opportunities available at most California independent college is available on the AICCU website at General Education: Although admission requirements vary and are listed in the catalogs of the various colleges and universities, students who transfer to independent colleges and universities are given credit for most, if not all, of their community college work. Virtually all colleges and universities give full credit for general education courses and for most other courses designated by the community college for transfer. Many independent colleges and universities accept total CSU General Education-Breath or IGETC certification as partial or total completion of their own campus general education requirements. See a listing of California independent colleges and universities that accept either IGETC or CSU General Education at: docs/articulation.pdf Minimum Entrance equirements: Most independent colleges have admissions requirements similar to the UC or CSU system, but vary by university. For instance, some private colleges may require as little as units for transfer admissions and many require essays and/or letters of recommendation, and some even interviews. Application Filing Periods: Filing periods will vary by campus. Please refer to individual college catalogs for more information.

ASGWC ASGWC stands for Associated Students, Golden West College. This student governing body provides ways for students to become involved on campus.

The scores are used to assist the student in selecting appropriate courses. BA or BS Degree A Bachelor s degree (BA = Bachelor of Arts and BS = Bachelor of Science) is a degree awarded by a four year college or university after the completion of an organized program of study consisting of approximately 120 semester units. Certificate Program A certificate program is an occupational program that offers career training and courses in a selected vocational area e.g. Accounting, Cosmetology, Criminal Justice, Nursing, or Computer Business Applications. CSU System CSU stands for the California State University system. It includes twenty three campuses which give incoming community college students priority registration.

Deadlines and instructions for withdrawal are listed in the Class Schedule. Elective A course that is neither required for your major, for general education, nor degree requirements is an elective. General Education General education refers to a broad range of courses taken to increase a student s knowledge of a variety of subjects. They are courses other than your major and are required of all students receiving an Associate of Arts or Bachelor s degree. Lower Division Lower division refers to students or courses at the freshmen (1st year) and sophomore (2nd year) level of college study. All coursework at GWC is considered lower division.

18 FAQ S What is General Education? The University of California and California State University G.E. Breadth agreements indicate a series of lower division coursework that a student can complete at GWC to satisfy the lower division general education requirements at the transfer campus. What is the CSU General Education Breadth equirements? This agreement describes the coursework that students must take to fulfill the lower division G.E. requirements for the CSU campuses. What is IGETC? It is a program which community college students can use to satisfy lower division general education requirements at any CSU or UC campus. (Note: On some UC campuses, IGETC is not recommended for some majors.) What is a Major? It is the principal field of study for a University student. All students are required to designate a major when transferring to the University. This lower division/prerequisite coursework can be completed at the community college prior to transfer. What is an Articulation agreement? It is a formal agreement between two campuses. They define how courses taken at one college or university campus can be used to satisfy a subject matter requirement at another college or university campus. What is General Education Certification? Certification is an indication of the completion of the entire pattern of general education for the California State University, (CSU GE Breadth), and/ or University of California, (IGETC), campuses. Certification allows students to satisfy their lower division GE requirements by following the approved community college curriculum rather than the university s lower division GE pattern. Is completion of IGETC/CSU Breadth required for admission to the UC or CSU? No. Students are not guaranteed admission to any campus on the basis of completing general education coursework. Completion of the lowerdivision breadth requirements may improve a transfer applicant s chances of admission to a competitive campus and/or program. Can a course be used to satisfy both General Education and Major requirements? Yes. A single course can meet the requirement for both general education and major requirements. See a Counselor for exceptions. Can a course be used to satisfy more than one GE Category? No. While a course may appear in more than one general education category, it can only be used to satisfy the requirement in one area. Is there a GPA requirement for the IGETC Pattern? Yes. IGETC coursework must be completed with a grade of C or better. Grades of Pass or Credit will be accepted when a passing grade is equivalent to a C or better. C- and D grades are not acceptable. What about the CSU Breadth Pattern? The CSU GE Breadth requirements stipulate that grades of C or better must be achieved in areas A and B4, as well as coursework in 30 of the 39 units of the general education pattern. Grades of Pass or Credit will be accepted when a passing grade is equivalent to a C or better. Can I use Advanced Placement scores for IGETC or CSU Breadth? Yes. Official Advanced Placement scores must be received from College Board for these to be used in either general education pattern. In most instances, scores of 3 or better will be granted course/subject or unit credit. See GWC Catalog for a listing of AP tests, scores, and approved credit. Which General Education Pattern should I choose? It depends. If you are planning on applying to both the UC and CSU, then the IGETC is an appropriate pattern as it meets the requirements for both systems. If you are only seeking transfer to the CSU, then you can follow the CSU GE Breadth requirements. Are there exceptions to who will accept IGETC? Yes. UC Berkeley s Hass School of Business, and UC San Diego s evelle and oosevelt Colleges will not accept IGETC. It is also often not advisable to use IGETC for most high-unit majors. Please see a Counselor regarding the general education requirements for these campuses. Can I use coursework from any college to meet the IGETC or CSU GE Breadth requirements? Yes. A community college can include courses from regionally accredited colleges and universities to meet IGETC requirements if the coursework is evaluated and deemed to be equivalent to that of the community college course. Is IGETC Certification or CSU GE Breadth Certification automatic? No. A student must request certification. At Golden West College, this request for certification is located on the transcript request form in the Admissions and ecords office. Can any student complete IGETC or CSU Breadth at the Community College? Not all students can use IGETC or CSU GE Breadth to satisfy their general education requirements. A student who entered a UC or CSU as a freshman, is now attending the community college, and plans to return to that same institution may not be eligible for the IGETC or CSU GE Breadth. 16
