It is imperative to note that the Foothill College general education pattern is only appropriate for students pursuing the Foothill College associate in arts or associate in science degree. However, it is not appropriate for students pursuing an A.A.–T or A.S.–T degree. Students planning to earn an A.A.–T or A.S.–T must complete either the IGETC or CSU GE Breadth general education pattern. Note that completion of the IGETC or CSU GE Breadth pattern may also be used to satisfy the general education requirements for the Foothill A.A./A.S. degree. Because there are significant differences between the three patterns, students are strongly advised to meet with a counselor to determine which pattern will best meet the student’s goals.
