The following information can be located under each course title in the catalog: the academic number (usually preceded by the letter X), the discipline in which credit is granted, and the quarter-unit value of the course.
Course numbers are classified as follows
|300-399:||Professional courses in Education|
|400-499:||Professional courses in other departments|
|800 Series or non-numbered courses:||Noncredit or Continuing Education Units issued. (Academic credit and letter grade not applicable.)|
All credit is offered in quarter-system units. Semester equivalents are:
|Semester:||2/3||1||1 1/3||2||2 2/3||3 1/3|
Some courses bear the designation "credit approval pending" after the X-number listed under the course title. When this catalog went to press, these courses were in the review process leading to approval for academic credit.
Continuing Education Units (CEUS)
Continuing Education Units were established by a national task force of educational associations and are intended for use where employers, relicensing agencies, or others require a specified number of hours of study, and noncredit study is acceptable for fulfillment of those requirements. One CEU is awarded for each 10 hours of contact partici pation. Because CEUs are related to contact time, grading is not appropriate.
