IGETC/CSU GE

APU accepts the completed IGETC or CSU GE as fulfilling the lower-division General Education requirements.

All APU traditional undergraduate students will be required to complete the requisite number of biblical studies and upper-division elective courses. In the cases of both the CSU GE and the IGETC, the certificate must be complete and obtained from the respective community college before the student matriculates to APU. Students who do not receive certification of completion will be evaluated by standard course-to-course articulation and will follow the APU General Education program. Undergraduate students who have completed minimum of 60 units and the IGETC or CSU Breadth will satisfy nine units of biblical studies at APU and nine units of upper-division General Education course.
