Courses taken at the community college may be used to satisfy general education requirements for graduation from CSU schools. However, such courses must be specifically identified and verified by the community college before they will be recognized by the CSU campus. This process is called certification. Students who complete all of the requirements in Areas A through E of the CSU General Education Certification Pattern are considered to be fully certified by the community college. It should be pointed out that in addition to the community college coursework at least three more general education courses must be completed in the junior/senior years at the CSU campus.
CSU certification must be requested by students when the request for sending their final transcript to the CSU campus is made.
