IGETC Plus Requirements for Transfer Students to Revelle College:
Revelle College welcomes students who transfer to UCSD with IGETC Certification, but Revelle does not accept IGETC as satisfaction of all its general education requirements. Students must complete the following additional general education requirements, either before transfer or while enrolled at UCSD:
Calculus Requirement: IGETC requires one semester of math. Revelle requires 2 semesters (or 3 quarters) of calculus. Science and engineering majors complete these as prerequisite to any science or engineering major. Non-science majors can take a calculus track for non-science majors.
Science Requirement: IGETC requires two semesters (or 3 quarters) of science. Revelle requires a minimum of five quarters specifically in chemistry, physics and biology (see articulation agreements on http://www.assist.org for details). Science and engineering majors usually complete these as prerequisites to their majors. These may be additional requirements for non-science majors.
Language Proficiency Requirement: Revelle requires a 3rd semester or 4th quarter of college level language to meet this requirement. In some cases, bilingual students can pass proficiency by taking a proficiency test. AP scores of 3, 4, or 5 in Foreign Literature or of 4 or 5 in Foreign Language will meet this requirement. A score of 700 or higher on the SAT Subject Test in a foreign language will also meet this requirement.
In addition, you must complete a major, earn at least 60 upper-division units and have a total of 184 units to graduate from Revelle College UCSD.
