Do I have to complete IGETC (Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum) to be admitted to UC Davis?
No, completion of IGETC is not required for admission to UC Davis. In fact, we do not recommend that you complete IGETC if you plan to enter a major with substantial lower-division requirements, such as those offered in the College of Biological Sciences. In this case, it’s more important to complete courses required for your major than to fulfill all of your general education requirements before transferring. IGETC works well for students planning for Bachelor of Arts majors with few units of lower-division preparation. Students choosing the IGETC pattern should complete it while at community college (with some exceptions). The Web sites assist.org and registrar.ucdavis.edu/UCDWebCatalog provide aditional details.
