Credit Course Subjects

Course descriptions are presented alphabetically by course prefix. The three-letter prefix identifies subject area; the three digits that follow identify the particular course. Generally, courses numbered 100 or lower are academic foundation courses; courses numbered from 101 to 199 are first-year offerings; and 200-level courses are second-year offerings.

Each description specifies the course’s credit value, which determines the tuition charge and the extent to which the course contributes toward the credit requirements for a degree.

General Education course
Throughout the course descriptions, the indicator at left identifies approved General Education courses.

All courses require college-level competence in reading, writing, and basic mathematics unless otherwise specified. Minimum proficiency is determined by one of the following: college skills placement test; completion of required academic foundations courses in reading, writing, and computation; or evidence of equivalent academic preparation. Specific skill requirements and additional course prerequisites are noted in individual course descriptions.

Prerequisites and Corequisites
Some courses require specific prerequisites or corequisites.
  • A prerequisite is a course that must be completed before a student is permitted to register for the more advanced course.
  • A corequisite is a course that a student must take either prior to or while enrolled in the related course.
