A General Education (GE) Certification is an official document from SDCCD which certifies that a student has met the requirements for CSU GE or IGETC.

  • A request for certification can only be submitted once a student has been accepted to a transferring institution.
  • All transcripts from previous colleges and universities attended must be on file with the SDCCD.
  • Students with AP/IB/CLEP exams may want to submit scores if they plan to use it to meet requirements.
  • If the UC IGETC Certification foreign language requirement has been met through the completion of two years or more of a language in High School, the High School transcripts must be on file with the SDCCD. Review the information on submitting transcripts.
  • Only one certification may be processed per student, one time only.
  • Once the certification is processed, the original is sent to the University indicated on the request form and a copy is sent to the student.
  • Requests may take up to 10 business days to process.
  • Plan ahead to ensure you submit your GE Certification request two weeks prior to the deadline. See the Evaluations website for more information.
