The IGE program offers first-time freshmen an integrated approach to learning about literature, humanities, social sciences, and the arts. The program satisfies 32 units of lower-division general education requirements.
Students exempt from or who have a score of at least 147 on the EPT qualify to enroll in IGE 120 in the Fall. Students who score less than 147 on the EPT may take the recommended English stretch courses and enroll in IGE 120 in the Winter and IGE 122 in the Spring. Those students will receive their A2 credit from English and any two from C1, C2, or C3 from IGE.
The IGE Program is open to any qualified student or undergraduate department wishing to adopt it as an option, and is the recommended GE pattern for Engineering, Architecture, and Liberal Studies majors. Students may substitute AP credit or major support courses for one course in an IGE yearly sequence, with a maximum of two substitutions in the IGE Program. For more information, contact the IGE Department Office.
Students must complete at least an IGE yearly sequence to earn general education credit. Students who wish to leave IGE and move to the University General Education pattern are advised to do so at the end of a yearly sequence, e.g. after IGE 122 or IGE 222 . Single IGE classes do not fulfill GE requirements. Students who choose to leave IGE and move to the University General Education pattern should seek advisement on how to fulfill remaining general education requirements.
