Course Levels

Remedial and Developmental Courses (001-089)

Students are directed to these courses as the result of skills assessment examinations. Hours and credits are not assigned in the same way as for other courses. Remedial Courses are non-credit courses with precollege content. Developmental Courses have in part college-level and in part precollege-level (remedial) work. They carry college credits only for the portion of the course that is college-level. The Remedial and Developmental courses are graded A, B, C, R, or NC. Students who receive a second grade of R in any remedial or developmental course may be dropped from the College.

Compensatory Courses (090-110)

All courses numbered 090-099 and some courses numbered 100-110 carry more hours than credits for purposes of skills development. These courses are college-level courses offering credits equivalent to that of regular college courses without extended classroom hours. (Compensatory courses numbered below 100 are graded A, B, C, NC, or R. They may be repeated until a grade of C is achieved. They do not count for distribution credit.)

Introductory Courses (100-199)

Intermediate Courses (200-299)

Advanced Courses (300-499)

The prerequisite for courses numbered 300-399 is the satisfactory completion of at least 30 college credits, unless otherwise specified.

The prerequisite for courses numbered 400-499 is the satisfactory completion of at least 60 college credits, unless otherwise specified.

NOTE: These course prerequisites are not repeated with every course description under "Course Offerings, Levels, and Codes;" however, the student is responsible for knowing about them and meeting them. This responsibility holds for all the information on course prerequisites presented in this section.
