The following document is designed to simplify your course selection and facilitate fulfillment of the General Education requirements for traditional undergraduate students at Azusa Pacific University. The guidelines are a general overview of what types of courses will satisfy APU’s General Education requirements. It is in your best interest to follow and complete these guidelines of suggested courses. If you have any questions, please contact One Stop.
Note: Non-traditional students interested in bachelor's degree programs through APU's School of Adult and Professional Studies should contact Non-Traditional Enrollment Services for transfer guidelines for those programs.
The following are NOT articulation agreements, but are tools to aid traditional undergraduate students in knowing which courses APU will accept to fulfill General Education requirements.
Select a California community college to view a General Education transfer plan:
APU accepts the completed IGETC or CSU GE as fulfilling the lower-division General Education requirements. However, the student will need complete these provisions as part of or in addition to their completed IGETC or CSU GE.
- Students will need to meet the foreign language requirement: two semesters of the same language at the college level.
- Students will need to meet the Health Education and Fitness for Life requirements.
- Students will need to complete a math course with at least a prerequisite of Intermediate Algebra (course must be from school’s math department).
All APU traditional undergraduate students will be required to complete the requisite number of biblical studies and upper-division elective courses. In the cases of both the CSU GE and the IGETC, the certificate must be complete and obtained from the respective community college before the student matriculates to APU. Students who do not receive certification of completion will be evaluated by standard course-to-course articulation and will follow the APU General Education program. Undergraduate students who have completed minimum of 60 units and the IGETC will satisfy nine units of biblical studies at APU and 9 units of upper-division General Education course.
