Los Angeles Southwest College Passport Block

The Passport Block listed here is for general information only. Students must see the institution's website for access to its official block.

PASSPORT BLOCK OVERVIEW

The Interstate Passport can be earned by passing with a grade of C or P or higher a minimum of 30 units in courses approved to meet the Interstate Passport learning outcomes for each of the nine knowledge and skills areas. A course may be used any number of times to meet the outcomes of any knowledge and skills area for which it is approved. As a result of this and variations in course unit values, the total number of courses required is likely to be at least nine or ten. Furthermore, because the knowledge and skills areas of the Interstate Passport align with those of the California State University General Education Breadth Pattern (CSUGE) and the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC), the above requirements will have been met by any student who completes either the CSUGE or IGETC plan. Consult the college catalog for the most current requirements and other details.
