Classification of Courses

The following classification of courses is furnished for clarification to assist students in choosing appropriate courses:

  1. Courses numbered lower than 1000 are designated as learning support courses. These may not be used to satisfy degree or certificate requirements. Enrollment in these courses is limited to students who are placed in them according to the college’s placement procedure.
  2. Courses numbered 1000 – 1999 are freshman level and those numbered 2000 – 2999 are sophomore level. However, students having necessary prerequisites may take any course.

Course Descriptions

Two types of courses are offered: institutional credit non-transfer courses not applicable to a degree or certificate and regular college credit courses.

Regular College Credit Courses

The following abbreviations indicate the term in which the course is offered:

F — Fall

S — Spring

Su — Summer

UD — Upon Demand

♦ — Courses which fulfill minimum degree requirements. For more information, see General Education Course Requirements for Associate of Arts, Associate of Fine Arts, Associate of Science and Associate of Applied Science, under » Academic Information .

 — Not part of a Tennessee Transfer Path.

 

English

Prior to enrollment in any college-level English course, students must first complete any applicable learning support writing and/or reading requirements indicated by placement testing assessment. (See Admission Requirements .)

Composition courses (ENGL 1010 , 1020 ) must be taken in sequence. No composition courses may be taken simultaneously and no literature courses (ENGL 2310 , 2320 2210 2220 2110 2120 ) may be taken before the composition sequence has been completed. Literature courses may be taken out of sequence.

Mathematics

Learning Support mathematics corequisite courses, MATH 0100  and 0530 , are taught in a computer classroom for one hour each week and students are expected to work in the Math Lab for additional out of class time each week (two hours each week if taking MATH 0100  or one hour each week if taking MATH 0530 ).

Placement into a corequisite learning support course is indicated by ACT or placement test assessment; students will be required to enroll in the appropriate corequisite course, along with their college-level math course. Students who have completed all SAILS requirements during high school are not required to take the required corequisite course. Two years of high school algebra or the equivalent are required to satisfy graduation requirements for any degree program (see Admissions Requirements ).

MATH 1000 , 1130 , 1530  and 1630  are taught in a 1+2 format, with students meeting in class one hour each week and working in the Math Lab for a minimum of two hours each week outside of class. MATH 1200 , 1710 , 1720  and 1830  are taught in a 2+1 format, with students meeting in class two hours each week and working in the Math Lab a minimum of one hour each week outside of class. Most courses require the student to have a graphing calculator. Students should refer to the course syllabus to determine the recommended calculator for a particular course.
