The Senate Enrolled Act 182 (2012) initiated the Statewide Transfer General Education Core (TGEC). Now known as the Indiana College Core, the college-ready core/STGEC consists of 30 semester hours of credit that is state-mandated to transfer as a student’s first year of college to any public university in the state of Indiana. A student must fulfill the STGEC requirements with a minimum of 30 credit hours and a grade point average (GPA) no lower than 2.0.
By fulfilling at least three credit hours in each of the following competencies as well as an additional 12 “elective” credit hours from the same competencies, your student will fulfill the core requirements that are equivalent to their first year of college - an estimated savings of $20,000.
- Quantitative Reasoning
- Speaking and Listening
- Written Communication
- Humanistic and Artistic Ways of Knowing
- Scientific Ways of Knowing
- Social and Behavioral Ways of Knowing
