Course Descriptions

Course Abbreviations

Elizabeth City State University has established a set of standardized abbreviations for its Schools and Courses. These abbreviations should be used in making out class schedule forms and at all times when referring to specific course offerings.

System of Course Numbers

Each course is defined by a Course Abbreviation and a number. The number of each course has three digits. The first digit indicates the classification level. The second and the third digit distinguish the course from other courses in the classification. The parentheses following the course name represent the number of credits being given for the course and the term(s) when it is offered. Courses marked with an asterisk (*) are required courses.

Example:

GE (General Education) 106 (First Level Classification): College Reading (Title of Course) (2) (Credits) (F;S;SS) (Course offered Fall, Spring, Summer).

Prerequisite Courses — Courses beyond the freshman year usually have "prerequisites." This means that certain courses must be taken before the student can register for the advanced course. The prerequisite may also require "consent of the Department Chairperson." The student must secure the permission from the above person(s) before he or she registers for the advanced course. "Consent of the Department Chairperson" is usually required for courses in which there is limited laboratory space and/or equipment, or in which specific skills and aptitudes are required.

Corequisite Courses — This means that certain courses must be taken at the same time.

Each student is advised to obtain a copy of the Handbook from the Department in which his/her intended major is found. This Handbook will provide information about the courses he/she must take and the entrance and exit requirements for them.
