General Education Academic Certificate (GEAC) Program at CWI 

At-a-Glance

 

Overview

CWI offers students the opportunity to complete General Education, or core classes, and earn a college certificate in the process. This certificate can transfer to any Idaho public university or college, and the credits earned will fulfill general core classes there. 

 

You can earn the GEAC by itself or along with an AA degree. Transferring is made simpler because there is a designation on the student transcript that the student has completed the General Education program.

 

Note: the GEAC is not a degree program/major that students can select. Courses are completed alongside an AA/AS degree program offered at CWI.

Credits The GEAC consists of 36 credits (12 classes)
Mission Courses in the GEAC program at CWI will engage students to consider other contexts and viewpoints, communicate with clarity and accuracy, and apply solutions and ideas. Students will be prepared to move forward in their academic career with a solid foundation from the GE courses they complete at CWI.
Why take? The CWI GEAC gives students the opportunity to earn credits that will count towards a student’s future whether or not they have already decided their career path. Students receive a high-level education at a fraction of the cost of universities in Idaho.
