The Certificate of Achievement in CSU General Education (CSU-GE-Breadth) is a program designed for students planning to transfer to either the California State University (CSU) system. It offers students a program of study which meets CSU general education transfer requirements. Although the certificate recognizes the completion of CSU general education requirements, it does not guarantee admission to a specific campus within the CSU system nor does it guarantee admission to a specific major. Some majors and colleges may require a different lower division preparation and/or a higher GPA than is necessary for this certificate.

Students who intend to transfer must meet all current CSU general education transfer requirements including minimum GPA and eligibility for certification. Students are strongly advised to meet with a counselor to discuss transfer requirements and lower division major preparation that is needed for their intended transfer school.
