What can I take at a community college to satisfy GE: D1 at Cal Poly?

We don't recommend taking D1 courses off campus. At Cal Poly, we require only one course and most community colleges require two to three courses to fulfill this requirement.
However, if you want to see the options on ASSIST:

  1. Select the California Community College from the drop down menu.
  2. Make sure you have the correct academic year
  3. Click on the link: CSU US History, Constitution, and American Ideals Courses
  4. Be sure to read all of the information on the page and contact Evaluations with questions.

 


What can I take at a community college to satisfy free electives?

The class must be CSU transferable. Select the community college from the drop down menu, then click on the “CSU Transferable” link. Search for the class by department. If the class appears on the list it is CSU transferable. If the class does not appear on the list, it is NOT transferable and cannot be used for free electives. You must also check the articulation of the class to be sure you are not repeating a class you already have credit for.
