How do I request a GE Breadth/IGETC certification?
The GE Breadth/IGETC certification must be initiated by the student (it’s not automatic.) 

  • To request a certification, submit an official transcript request to the Student Records Office and indicate that you need certification with the transcript.
  • Mark the GE Breadth or IGETC certification box on the transcript request form.
  • IGETC certification can only be mailed directly to the transfer school.  
  • Certifications should be requested on the last (final) transcript going to your transfer school.
  • If you’ve completed coursework at other institutions, official transcripts from those schools must be on file at Orange Coast College prior to your request.
  • If you have not completed the CSU Breadth or IGETC transfer patterns, you are not ready to send your transcript with this certification.
