This general education plan is designed for students planning to obtain an Associate Degree. The general education requirements are only one
component of the Associate Degree. Use this sheet in conjunction with the curriculum guide (located at http://osca.lbcc.edu) for your choice of
major, and in consultation with a counselor.
Please note that completion of an A.A./A.s. degree does not automatically qualify a student to transfer. Students planning to transfer to a CSU
or UC school should refer to the CSUGE-B or IGETC General Education Course Patterns (Plan B or Plan C at http://osca.lbcc.edu/genedplan.cfm) and
consult with a counselor to determine the best general education pattern.

                                                    Since individual plans and circumstances vary,
                                     students should consult with a counselor before beginning a program of study
                                           to ensure the appropriate General Education pattern is followed.
These requirements are designed for students planning to transfer to the California State University (CSU). Courses on this pattern are lower-divi-
sion general education breadth requirements specific to the California State University System and used to obtain full or partial certification.
Students planning to transfer to the University of California should refer to the IGETC General Education Pattern (Plan C). Students planning to earn
an associate degree and NOT transfer should follow Plan A. Both Plans A and C are accessible at http://osca.lbcc.edu/genedplan.cfm.

                    Double-counting of courses listed in more than one area of this general education pattern is NOT allowed.
     For example, PHIL 3 is listed in areas C2 (Humanities) and D7 (Social Sciences ), but it may be used to satisfy only one of these requirements.

                                              to ensure the appropriate General Education pattern is followed.
This general education plan is designed for students planning to obtain an Associate Degree. The general education requirements are only one
component of the Associate Degree. Use this sheet in conjunction with the curriculum guide (located at http://osca.lbcc.edu) for your choice of
major, and in consultation with a counselor.
Please note that completion of an A.A./A.s. degree does not automatically qualify a student to transfer. Students planning to transfer to a CSU
or UC school should refer to the CSUGE-B or IGETC General Education Course Patterns (Plan B or Plan C at http://osca.lbcc.edu/genedplan.cfm) and
consult with a counselor to determine the best general education pattern.
