General Education:
In addition to the courses listed above, students must complete one of the general education options listed on page 87 of the College Catalog.
The IGETC pattern (page 107) is accepted by all CSU campuses and most UC campuses and majors. It is also accepted by some private/independent or out of state universities.
The CSU GE pattern (page 115) is accepted by all CSU campuses and some private/independent or out of state universities. It is not accepted by the UC system.
The San Diego Community College District General Education pattern (page 92) may be appropriate for students transferring to a private/independent or out of state university or to a highunit major. Students selecting this option should meet with a counselor to determine the appropriate General Education courses for their individual transfer goals.
It is strongly recommended that students consult with a counselor to determine which general education option is most appropriate for their individual educational goals.
Associate in Science Degree:
Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer Degree
The Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer Degree is intended for students who plan to complete a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics or a related major in the California State University (CSU) system. Students who complete this degree and transfer to a participating CSU campus will be required to complete no more than 60 units after transfer to earn a bachelor’s degree. It may not be appropriate preparation for students transferring to a CSU campus that does not accept the degree. Students who plan to complete this degree should consult a counselor for additional information about participating CSU campuses as well as university admission, degree, and transfer requirements.
Because admission and major preparation requirements vary at each transfer institution, courses used to complete this degree should be selected with the assistance of a Miramar College counselor.
