Courses numbered 1100-4399 are college-level credit courses. A credit course is a part of an approved educational program or major. The second number in the four-digit sequence represents the number of semester credit hours (SCH) awarded for a particular course. For example, COMM 1307 is a 3 semester credit hour course in Communication, and ACNT 2401 is a 4 semester credit hour course in Accounting.
Developmental Education Courses
Courses numbered 0100-0499 are offered for credit but do not count toward completion of a program or major. These are designed for students who score lower than college-level on English, Math, and Reading placement exams. For each student who fails to meet passing standards on placement exams, Midland College has established a program to advise the student and determine a plan regarding the sequence of development education courses necessary to assure the readiness of that student in performing freshman-level academic course work.
Numbers in parentheses identify the number of classroom and lab hours per week. For example, (3-2) indicates three hours in the classroom plus two hours in the lab.
When present, a third number indicates clinical, practicum or internship hours.
Kinesiology/Physical Education activity classes at Midland College are designed to supplement the overall education experience through the development and measurement of the skills involved. Classes also include strategies and concepts as they relate to those activities. Students are allowed a maximum of 4 semester credit hours in activity courses toward their degree. Students are allowed a maximum of 8 semester credit hours toward their degree. Each course number may be taken twice for credit but the 1100 numbers must be taken first.
The “Physical Fitness” course offerings are designed to develop a holistic approach to living. Specifically the courses cover the components of cardio-respiratory conditioning, muscular strength/endurance training, flexibility development, nutrition and weight control, and other related topics.
Courses in the 1170 and 2170 series may only be taken by students who are members of the respective varsity athletic teams.
