Why Complete the GECC?
Nearly all college degrees require a student to complete some number of general education courses. These are courses that encompass a wide range of disciplines in the Arts and Sciences. The purpose for general education courses is to ensure that all college graduates have some understanding of the scope of disciplines that offer insight into the world in which they live. For students uncertain about choosing a field of study, general education courses offer the opportunity to explore all that college has to offer. Completing the GECC at the Community College earns the Gen Ed Certificate and provides the student with low cost options that transfer smoothly and provide opportunities to move quickly into core course in their chosen field once they do transfer.
To complete the GECC, students must complete courses within five different areas of study. To learn more about the specific courses that qualify for the GECC credential, please see the GECC Courses page.
