Course Classification

All credit courses offered by CF are designated in one of the following classifications:

Gordon Rule classes are noted within the course description.

Developmental Education courses do not count toward either an A.A. or an A.S. degree and receive institutional credit only. They may be used in calculating full-time status for athletic team participation, financial aid and veterans benefits.

Occupational (Career) courses may not count toward the A.A. degree. They count in full toward the appropriate A.S. degree.

Parallel courses count toward the A.A. degree and should transfer readily to any college or university.

Dual courses count toward the A.A. degree as part of the 60 hours only if they are appropriate for the student’s program of study or area of interest. Students should consult with a counselor prior to enrolling in a designated dual course.

PSAV courses only apply to Postsecondary Adult Vocational Certificate programs and do not count toward either an A.A. or A.S. degree.

Baccalaureate level courses are 3000 and 4000 level courses open only to students in specific baccalaureate degree programs. They count in full toward designated baccalaureate degrees.

Students are cautioned against taking excessive electives or courses out of their major field of study at the expense of required prerequisites.
