Choosing the Right Courses

With careful course planning, you can meet your transfer goal in a reasonable amount of time. Students should meet with a counselor soon after beginning courses at Foothill College to develop your educational plan.

The most important courses to complete prior to transfer are:

  1. the lower division courses required for your major preparation and,
  2. the General Education pattern that most closely fits your needs.

Information about lower division major course preparation for UCs and CSUs may be obtained at http://www.assist.org.

Information about lower division major course preparation for some private colleges in California may be obtained at http://isap.dagsoft.com. Some independent institutions accept either the CSU GE or the CSU/UC IGETC General Education pattern as a substitute for their own general education requirements. For more information, click here.
