Use, Effectiveness, and Awareness of the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) An Evaluation

Intersegmental Issues

This study was undertaken by the Intersegmental Committee of Academic Senates (ICAS) to assess the degree of use, effectiveness, and awareness of IGETC eight years after its adoption, and to identify the extent to which community college transfer students and counseling faculty are satisfied with the option. Responses to the study reveal that the IGETC pattern of lower-division general education requirements is both well-known and preferred among community college transfer students who used it, and would be so to even more students with a concerted and recurrent effort to inform them of this option.
