Course Numbers:

Courses numbered 01-09 are Developmental Studies Courses (Preparatory). The credits earned in these courses are not applicable toward associate degree programs; however, upon approval of the Vice President of Instruction, some developmental courses may provide credit applicable in basic occupational certificate programs. Students may re-register for these courses in subsequent semesters as necessary (special permission required after the first repeat) until the course objectives are completed.

Courses numbered 10-99 are courses for certificate programs. The credits earned in these courses are applicable toward certificate programs, but are not applicable toward an associate degree.

Courses numbered 100-199 are courses applicable toward an associate degree and/or certificate and diploma programs.

Courses numbered 200-299 are sophomore level courses applicable toward an associate degree and/or certificate and diploma programs.

 

Course Credits:

The credit for each course is indicated after the title in the course description. One credit is equivalent to one collegiate semester hour credit.

 

Course Hours:

The number of lecture hours in class each week (lecture, seminar and discussion hours) and/or the number of laboratory hours in class each week (including laboratory, shop, supervised practice, and cooperative work experience) are indicated for each course in the course description. The number of lecture and laboratory hours in class each week are also called “contact” hours because this is time spent under the direct supervision of a faculty member. In addition to the lecture and laboratory hours in class each week, as listed in the course description, each student also must spend some time on out-of-class assignments under his/her own direction. Usually, each credit per course requires an average of three hours of in-class and out-of-class study each week.

 

Course Prerequisites:

If any prerequisites are required before enrolling in a course, they will be identified in the course description. Courses in special sequences (usually identified by the numerals I-II) require that prior courses or their equivalent be completed before enrolling in the advanced courses in the sequence. When co requisites are required for a course, usually the co requisites must be taken at the same time. The prerequisites or their equivalent must be completed satisfactorily before enrolling in a course unless special permission is obtained from the VP of Instruction and instructional department.
