“IGETC Standards” is the document that describes the pattern of courses overseen by ICAS that allows a student to transfer from a California community college to a CSU or UC campus having completed lower division general education requirements.

ICAS reviews proposed changes or clarification periodically. These changes are the work of the ICAS IGETC Standards subcommittee, which is composed of one representative from each segment as noted in the ICAS bylaws. The chair of the IGETC Standards Review Committee has the authority to invite guests to the committee meetings to inform the discussion and provide input on the recommendations that are presented to ICAS. In the past, the committee chair has requested that the three segment Academic Senates (UC, CSU and CCC) extend invitations to articulation officers to attend and participate in the IGETC Standards Review Committee deliberation.

The IGETC Standards document is a crucial resource on the Transfer Counselor website:
In its own words, “The California Community College Transfer Counselor Website (TCW) was designed to become a one-stop website for California’s community college transfer counselors. TCW contains all California college and university information and some bordering out-of-state (OOS) university information: http://ccctransfer.org/
