Guide to Course Abbreviations
College-level Credit Courses
Courses numbered 1100-4399 are college-level credit courses. A credit course is a part of an approved educational program or major. The credit awarded by Midland College for completion of most courses is accepted as a completion of a portion of an appropriate educational sequence leading to a Certificate, Associate Degree, or Baccalaureate Degree. 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.
Key to Course Codes
Some subjects may have more than one course code.
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.
