About the Course Descriptions

Prerequisites and Corequisites

If a course lists a prerequisite, that course must be successfully completed before a student can enroll in the next course.

For example: The course description for BMG* 220 lists BMG* 202 as a prerequisite. Thus, BMG* 202 must be completed successfully before the student may register for BBG* 220.

Certain courses in the Nursing program require a specified minimum grade in order to progress in the program.

If a course lists a corequisite, that course must be taken EITHER before this course OR during the same semester.

For example: ESL* 143 lists ESL* 147A as a corequisite. Thus, ESL* 147A must either have been successfully completed prior to registration in ESL* 143, or the student should be registered for both courses in the same semester. 

Course Numbering

The Community Colleges have moved to common course numbers and titles at all campuses. Because of this conversion, many courses have new titles and numbers. It is important for students to note any “Formerly listed as …” information in the course descriptions to ensure that they have not previously enrolled in a course for which the title has changed.

NOTE: The number in the upper right corner of each course description indicates the number of credits the college grants for that course. NC indicates a course which does not earn college credit.

While every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the information provided in this catalog, the College reserves the right to make changes at any time without prior notice.

Definitions of Distance Learning Course Delivery

  • HYBR Online and Classroom (reduces seat time not interactive instructional time): Hybrid courses combine face-to-face classroom instruction with interactive online facilitated instruction. In a Hybrid course, a portion of the course learning is online and as a result, the amount of classroom seat-time is reduced.
  • OLCR Online with Campus Requirement (such as orientation or assessment): In an OLCR course, all of the instruction takes place online; however, there may be some “in-person” non-instructional component, such as an initial orientation or final proctored exams.
  • ONLN Fully Online: Online courses, also known as “Distance Learning Courses” use Blackboard as virtual classrooms. The entire course is conducted electronically and has no scheduled on-campus meetings or assessments.
  • LRON Live/Remote Online Courses: These courses are delivered fully online with LIVE (synchronous) instruction at specified times listed on the class schedule.
