General Education Core Curriculum (GECC) Certificate

General Education Core Curriculum (GECC) Certificate

DACC also offers the General Education Core Curriculum (GECC) Certificate as an option for transfer-oriented students. The GECC Certificate represents completion of the General Education Core Curriculum as a part of a transferable degree. DACC is a participant in the Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI), a statewide agreement that allows transfer of the completed Illinois General Education Core Curriculum between participating institutions.

A list of participating institutions can be found at https://www.itransfer.org/courses/participatingschools.php

Completion of the GECC assures transferring students that lower-division general education requirements for an associate or bachelor’s degree have been satisfied. Completion of the 37-41 credit hours also meets the general education requirements for all of DACC’s transfer associate degrees. The credential is not a workforce certificate nor industry-recognized credential. Please note, education, science, technology, engineering, and mathematics majors will be directed to take specific general education courses for their majors. DACC Academic Advisors (Lincoln Hall, Room 104) can help students select the courses that meet their education and certificate/degree goals.
