General Education

General Education

Gavilan’s general education (GE) requirements introduce students to a variety of disciplines through which they comprehend and interact with the modern world. The GE requirements are central both to the college’s mission and to its associate degrees.

Completion of the GE requirements will develop students’ abilities to think and communicate clearly, both orally and in writing; to use mathematics and employ the scientific method; to understand the modes of inquiry in major disciplines; to be aware of other cultures and other eras; to apply critical thinking to ethical and social issues; and to develop the capacity for self-understanding and improvement. The student will also develop a depth of knowledge in a specific field of interest. In completing the requirements, students will come to understand basic principles, concepts and methodologies that may be unique to a specific discipline or universal in the quest for knowledge.   

General Education Learning Outcomes

Additional Associate Degrees

An Associate of Arts or an Associate of Science degree will be awarded to those currently possessing an associate degree provided:

  1. The second degree major includes a minimum of 18 new units,
  2. Courses used to satisfy major requirements for the previous degree(s) are not used to satisfy any of the new 18 major units, and
  3. The student completes the last 12 units or has completed a total of 48 units at Gavilan College.

   
For continuing students, the general education and major requirements for the additional degree are those listed in the college catalog for the academic year in which the student first takes courses for the first degree or any subsequent catalog thereafter. (Continuous attendance is defined as enrollment in at least one regularly transcripted course per year, including summer.)

For returning students, the requirements are those listed in the college catalog for the year in which the student returns or any subsequent catalog thereafter.  

Articulation Agreements

Gavilan College has completed lower division course-to-course, major-to-major, and general education agreements with all Cali- fornia State University (CSU), University of California (UC) and a number of private university campuses. These agreements ensure that participating universities will accept certain courses taken at Gavilan College to satisfy general education, major, or elective university requirements. The articulation officer, counselors and the Career/Transfer Re- source Center staff have lists of participating institutions. Articulation agreements are also available online. See information on www.assist.org.


   
Baccalaureate Degree Graduates

Gavilan College will accept the general education used to complete a Baccalaureate degree to satisfy the General Education requirements for an Associate degree at Gavilan College, under the following parameters:

  • The student has been granted a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited university in the United States.
  • The student presents official transcripts that verify completion of the baccalaureate degree.
  • The cumulative grade point average of the university work must be 2.00 or better.
  • Major courses required for the desired Gavilan College degree must be completed at Gavilan College with a grade of “C” or better in each course.
  • All Gavilan residency and graduation requirements, including math and English requirements in effect at the time of graduation, must be satisfied.


Double Counting Rule   Reference: Title V, Section 55063 C

While a course might satisfy more than one general education requirement, it may not be counted more than once for these purposes. A course may be used to satisfy both a general education requirement and a major or area of emphasis requirement.

Whether it may be counted again for a different degree requirement is a matter for each college to determine. Students may use the same course to meet a general education requirement for the associate degree and to partially satisfy a general education requirement at the California State University, if such course is accepted by that system to satisfy a general education requirement.
   

Gavilan College Graduation Requirements

FOR AN ASSOCIATE DEGREE: An associate degree (A.A. or A.S.) at Gavilan College can be achieved by completing a combination of general education courses and a specific major selected from the Gavilan Catalog. A minimum of 60 degree-applicable units (courses numbered 1-299) are required to earn a degree at Gavilan College. To be eligible for graduation a student must:

Complete a minimum of 60 overall units, to include major course requirements, general education, and electives when necessary to add up to 60 total units. A student may select any of the options below to satisfy the general education requirements:

  • Gavilan College A.A./A.S. General Education Pattern
  • The California State University (CSU-GE Breadth) Pattern
  • The Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) Pattern

All three patterns lead to an associate degree. Two are transfer-level patterns (CSU-GE Breadth and IGETC), and one designed for those students who may not be interested in transferring to a university. It is possible to complete an A.A./A.S. degree while also preparing for transfer. Consult a counselor for details.
     

FOR A CERTIFICATE: Complete course requirements for the major.

FOR BOTH OPTIONS, YOU MUST ALSO:

  • Complete all major/certificate requirement courses with a grade of "C" or better in each course.
  • Maintain a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 (“C”) or higher for all work attempted. A grade of “C” or better is also required in each course in Area A and Area B-4 (mathematics), of the general education pattern.*
  • Complete the last 12 units or have completed 48 units at Gavilan College.
  • Complete a graduation petition for each associate degree, Certificate of Achievement, Certificate of Proficiency and award of achievement they wish to receive. These petitions must be filed with the Admissions and Records office by mid-April for spring or summer graduation and mid-October for fall graduation.

General Education Reciprocity Agreement

The Gavilan Community College District has entered into a mutual agreement with seven other community Colleges to accept the general education of these colleges. The participating colleges are: Chabot College (Hayward), De Anza College (Cupertino), Evergreen Valley College (San Jose), Foothill College (Los Altos Hills), Gavilan College (Gilroy), Las Positas (Livermore), Mission College (San Jose), Ohlone College (Fremont), San Jose City College (San Jose), West Valley College (Saratoga). Only the colleges listed participate in this agreement and these agreements are subject to change. Check with a counselor.

Students who obtain a Certification of Completion of Associate Degree General Education or complete an associate degree at any of the participating colleges will have both their general education course work and graduation proficiencies accepted as completed at any one of the participating campuses. No additional general education course work will be required if the certification is officially presented. Students will still be required to complete all major courses and prerequisites needed for a degree.   

To obtain a Certification of Gavilan College General Education:

  • Request a General Education Certification from the Gavilan College Admissions and Records Office.
  • If transcripts are to be used from other colleges, official copies must be on file with the Records Office.
  • A copy of the certification will be given to the student.
  • Gavilan College will honor the certification presented from the participating colleges only if it is transmitted in the same manner as an official transcript. Student copies will not be honored.
