Only a few out of state and private schools require general education certification. Check with the institution to see if IGETC or CSU certification is required. A certified IGETC or CSU transcript is the last transcript you will request from Cabrillo prior to transfer. Before submitting a request for general education certification, you should consult with a Cabrillo College counselor to verify that you have completed all the requirements.
Log into Web Advisor, and select Order Official Transcripts. During the order process you may select either a CSU Certification or an IGETC certification. CAUTION: Do not request a GE Certified transcript unless you have met with a counselor to verify that you are eligible. Certifications are sent directly to the Institution - usually after you have accepted an offer of admission from a particular university. Visit the Transcripts page for more information about ordering transcripts.
It is your responsibility to request general education certification in your last semester of attendance at Cabrillo College prior to transfer. The transcript will be sent directly to the university following completion of all your courses. Please make sure Cabrillo Admissions & Records has received ALL official transcripts from all colleges and/or universities attended, AP or IB scores and high school transcripts needed to fulfill certification requirements. If you are unsure, please contact Admissions & Records at 831-479-6201.
When Cabrillo certifies your IGETC or CSU General Ed, we are verifying to the university that you have completed all your lower-division general education requirements. Without the certification you may have to complete additional lower-division general education requirements specific to your transfer university.
