        WHICH CLASSES SHOULD I TAKE? IGETC or Certificate?

        What is IGETC?

        • IGETC is the pattern of courses you take to graduate with an Associate’s Degree and transfer to a 4-year university. 
        • Most Common Course Load is 4-6 classes each semester for a total of 12-18 units. 
        • 12-18 units = 12-18 hours of class per week
        • Classes may be online, hybrid of online and in person, or in person
        • Want to graduate in 2 years? You need 15 or more units every semester (not including summer.) 
        • Summer classes help to make sure you graduate on time. 
        • Example of Fall Semester: English (4 units) + Math (5 units) + Film (3 units) + Public Speaking (3 units) = 4 classes and 15 units

        In addition to IGETC, you need to complete classes in your MajorGoogle “Name of College + Name of Major” Example: Moorpark College Business Major

        What’s a Certificate?

        • For students who want to step into the work force after Moorpark College. 
        • Takes about 18 months to earn your Certificate.
        • You can receive a Certificate in any subject area: Arts. Media & Entertainment, Business & Technology, Communication & Languages, Education & Teaching, Health & Wellness, Human Behavior & Society, Science & Math.

        PRE-REQUISITE CLEARANCE FOR YOUR COURSE

        • What is a Pre-Requisite? A class you must take first before taking a more challenging class
        • How do I know if my class has a Pre-Requisite? When you are looking at a class schedule, there is a column labeled “Pre/Coreq” If the words “Pre/Coreq” are in blue under that column, click on it. The description of the class will tell you the pre-requisite class you need to register for that class. 

        Example: CHEM M01A = Prerequisites: CHEM M11 or CHEM M12 or one year of high school chemistry, or equivalent and MATH M03 or two years of high school algebra (equivalent to Intermediate Algebra), or equivalent.

        Step #1 Fill out the Clearance Form and insert your transcript.

        Step #2 Wait up to 72 hours for an email to your MyVCCCD Portal that states your Pre-Requisite has been cleared. Then go and register for the class.

        AP/IB CREDIT

        Did you take AP/IB exams and pass?! Make sure to log into your AP/IB scores (once released) and send official scores to your college.

        Now you will receive credit for that class & you do not have to take it.

        • Ask them for more scholarships, grants, and work study that you can apply for
        • Confirm your Financial Aid and tuition bill
        • Specifically, ask about jobs in HOUSING. These jobs can give Free room & board (food) = you may not get it Freshman year but it can come in handy for the years after.
        • For out-of-state public colleges, ask them about obtaining in-state residency, what is required? You may switch to in-state tuition if you become a resident.

        * Lookup the Dean or Notable Professor on your intended Major’s webpage

        • Email or Call them asking for opportunities for incoming Freshman
        • Do not miss any deadlines or cool opportunities like study abroad, internships, research, jobs, grants, and more money.

        *College ROTC

        • Join the ROTC program at your college for Freshman year. Typically, you take 1 leadership class a semester/quarter, workout once a week with friends, and you do not sign a contract to become an Officer until Sophomore year.
        • If you decide the ROTC program is not right for you, you do not have to continue (no penalties because you are not under contract.) If you decide it is right for you, they will pay your tuition, earn a stipend each month, and help pay for your room & board and books.
        • There are deadlines for this, don’t miss them.

        Most often, your Freshman year is the most expensive!
