General Course Information

Course descriptions can be found under the "Courses" link at the top of the Catalog Home Page. Courses are listed alphabetically by subject prefixes and 4-digit numbers that indicate the course level. Generally numbers that begin with a 0 are non-credit or developmental courses and do not apply to a degree. Those that begin with a 1 are freshmen or first-year level courses; a 2 indicates a sophomore or second-year level course and usually has a prerequisite. See the program pages for program specific requirements. When a prerequisite is indicated, students who believe they have knowledge similar to the prerequisite may consult with the course instructor about registration.

New courses are continuously being added and some courses are being deleted from the curricula, so if a course is not listed in this catalog, students should consult the appropriate division to find a description. For more detailed information about a course, the course outline (syllabus) is available from the division secretary. Help in locating information about courses is also available from counselors, advisers, or the Enrollment Advisement Center.

Please note also that not every course is offered every semester. Fall and Spring are used to indicate when courses are normally offered. “ASN” identifies those courses not offered on a regular basis.
