Keeping your options open? The Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) is designed to satisfy the lower-division general education requirements for both the UC and CSU systems.

Completion of all the requirements in the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) will permit a student to transfer from a community 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 campus general education requirements.

Note: In many cases there are other face-to-face courses that can also be used to fulfill requirements. Refer to the current MPC Catalog for complete information about the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) requirements. 

The course requirements for all areas must be completed before IGETC can be certified. All courses must be completed with graces of ‘C’ or better. (A grade of ‘C-‘ is not acceptable.)

Refer to the MPC Class Schedule to see which courses are offered online for a given semester.
