Course Numbering

In the sample above, the first capital letters (BADM) indicate the subject area (see course abbreviations). The three numbers (162) following the four capital letters are the numbers assigned to a particular course within the subject area. In this case, BADM represents the subject area, business, and 162 is the number assigned to this course. Within this listing of course descriptions, courses are listed in numerical order within each subject area. Courses numbered 099 are designed to provide students with basic skills preparatory to first-year studies. If a course number starts with zero, no certificate or degree credit is offered. Courses numbered 100 through 199 are usually introductory or first-year courses. Courses numbered 200 through 299 are usually second-year courses. Course numbers do not indicate whether or not a course will be accepted for transfer to other institutions. Students must consult with advisors/counselors regarding transfer of courses and credits to other institutions.

A course that is determined to have at least 30 percent of its content from material or resources found outside the United States is considered an international or global course. International or global courses are identified in the class schedule with a G following the course number (e.g. BADM 281G, International Business).

Credit Hours and Contact Hours

The number of semester credits for each course described in the Catalog is indicated after the course title. The number of contact hours (actual hours of class time per week) for each course described in the Catalog is indicated in parentheses after the credit hours. For example, 3(3) indicates three credit hours and three contact hours per week.

Prerequisites/Corequisites/Concurrently

Prerequisites indicate courses that must be successfully completed before entering in a more advanced or subsequent course. Prerequisites, if any, are listed in italics at the end of each course description. In the example, BADM 161 is the prerequisite and must be taken before enrolling in BADM 162. Prerequisites are established to assure that the student has an adequate and sufficient background to enroll in the course. Because technology changes so frequently, the prerequisite(s) for certain courses may change. If the listed prerequisite(s) are not met, a previous course or combination of courses (not listed or taught currently) may be substituted for the current prerequisite(s). Contact a counselor for further information. Corequisites indicate courses that must be taken during the same term. Concurrent enrollment indicates prerequisites that may be taken during the same term.

Division approval is required to have a prerequisite waived. It is the responsibility of the student to contact the proper division to obtain permission to enroll in a course in which the prerequisite has not been met.

Courses are subject to cancellation based on enrollment, staffing or other factors.
