Course numbers appear before the course titles. Courses numbered 1 – 9 are developmental courses. The credits earned in these courses cannot be applied toward a degree, certificate or diploma. Courses numbered 10 – 99 are first level courses for certificate programs. The credits earned cannot be applied toward an associate degree program. Courses numbered 100 – 299 can be applied to an appropriate associate degree program, and they may also be used in certificate programs.
Course credits are provided after the course titles. One credit is equivalent to one collegiate semester hour credit.
The number of lecture and laboratory hours is shown at the end of each course description. The total number of lecture and laboratory hours is referred to as “contact” hours since it reflects the time spent each week under the supervision of a faculty member.
Prerequisites are identified in the course description and must normally be met prior to enrollment. If a co-requisite is identified, it means the two courses should be taken at the same time.
