The credit for each course is indicated after the title in the course description. One credit is equivalent to one collegiate semester hour credit.
The number of lecture hours in class each week (including lecture, seminar, and discussion hours) and/or the number of laboratory hours in class each week (including laboratory, shop, supervised practice, and cooperative work experiences) are indicated for each course in the course description. The number of lecture and laboratory hours in class each week are also called “contact” hours because it is time spent under the direct supervision of a faculty member. In addition to the lecture and laboratory hours in class each week as listed in the course description, each student also must spend some time on out-of-class assignments under his or her own direction. Usually each credit per course requires an average of three hours of in-class and out-of-class work each week for 15 weeks.
If any are required before enrolling in a course, these prerequisites will be identified in the course description. Courses in special sequences (usually identified by the numeral I-II-III) require that prior courses or their equivalent be completed before enrolling for a course; usually the corequisites must be taken at the same time. The prerequisites or their equivalent must be completed before enrolling in a course unless special permission is obtained from the Vice President of Instruction, academic dean, and the instructor of the course.
The college reserves the right to change, to delete, or to substitute courses or programs at any time.
