IGETC (Option 3)



Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum

(IGETC Option 3)

In spring 2008, Orange Coast College converted to a new database as part of the Coast Community College District. As a result, an “A” was added to all the course numbers (i.e., ENGL 100 changed to ENGL A100). The official transcript will show the letter “A” preceding the course number for all courses since 1989, even though the actual change did not occur until spring 2008.
Completion of the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) will satisfy the lower division general education requirements of either the California State University or University of California system. The IGETC should be completed in its entirety before transferring or the student may be subject to the general education requirements of the campus to which they have been admitted.
All courses must be completed with grades of “C” or better. Grades of “pass” may be used if “pass” is equal to a “C” or better, but students must be aware that there are limits to the number of units that can be taken P/NP. Courses used to meet IGETC requirements must be at least 3 semester units or 4 quarter units.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Courses on this list are approved for a specific academic term. Students wishing to use a course to meet an IGETC requirement must be sure that the course is approved for the academic term in which it is taken. Courses which have been added since the original list was published in 1991 are identified with a plus sign (+) in parentheses. For example: a course with (+F95) can only be used if taken in Fall, 1995 or later. Courses which have been deleted from the list are identified with a minus sign (-) and cannot be used unless taken prior to the removal date. For example a course with (-F95) cannot be used unless it is taken before Fall, 1995. THIS LIST IS VALID THROUGH SUMMER, 2022.
