Course Descriptions


Course Numbering Information:
Courses at SLCC are identified by an alphabetic prefix (two to four letters) followed by a four-digit number. Numbers beginning with a “1” generally indicate a course designed primarily for freshmen (such as ENGL 1010 ); numbers beginning with a “2” generally indicate courses designed primarily for sophomores (such as MATH 2010 ); numbers beginning with a “0” generally indicate preparatory courses that are non-transferable (such as WRTG 0990 ).
