General Education (GE) Options for Transfer

General Education with GlobeWhich GE is for me?

General Education (G.E.) is a pattern of courses determined by a 4-year institution to represent its "general" or "breadth" philosophy of what constitutes a well-educated graduate. Each college has its own philosophy of education; its own G.E. pattern.

  • General Education courses are graduation requirements not admission requirements. However, at some schools, completion of the G.E., or certain portions of it may be used as an admission screening criteria for transfer students.
  • There are several options from which students may choose to satisfy lower division transfer G.E requirements before leaving LATTC. Some campuses may have additional Upper Division G.E requirements that students will have to complete after they transfer.
  • Finally, LATTC has its own G.E pattern for completion of the Associate of Arts/Science degree. With careful planning, students may be able to complete both the LATTC G.E. for the AA/AS degree and their transfer institution's G.E.

NOTE: Admission and graduation requirements are often confused. ADMISSION requirements to colleges and universities are based upon:

  • Completion of certain high school subjects
  • The college grade point average (GPA)
  • The minimum number of transferable units (usually 60, less for private and out-of-state institutions).

While some campuses use G.E. completion, or partial completion, as an additional admission screening criteria, meeting G.E. requirements relates to a student's graduation from the transfer institution.

The best choice of a G.E. Pattern varies, depending on a student's choice of school, major, previous course work and personal preference. Students should make an appointment with a counselor or visit the Transfer center to discuss specific situations and be sure to right the choices are made.
