Course/Credit Types

Lower Division Collegiate Transfer (LDC) courses are those that will transfer to four-year schools in Oregon, four-year public institutions, and apply towards a bachelor’s degree. Generally, transfer courses will have a departmental prefix and a three-digit number 100 through 299.

Developmental Education (DEV) courses are designed to help a student gain skill and knowledge before taking college-level courses. These courses will generally have a departmental prefix and a two- or four-digit number.

Career Technical Education (CTE) courses will vary, but will have a departmental prefix and a two-, three-, or four-digit number. Because course numbers vary, students planning to transfer to four-year institutions should follow the course selections shown under the Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer (AA/OT) requirements, as well as consult with their advisor.  Career Technical Education courses may have limitations in degrees.

Non-credit courses are generally offered for community interest, personal enrichment, and professional development. The content is generally not applicable toward a certificate, diploma, or degree, and courses are not always transcribed.

Continuing Education Units (CEU) are a nationally recognized unit granted for educational experiences to upgrade a person’s skills in a particular profession or occupation. Courses developed to meet these needs are often approved through a professional licensing agency or a state or regional board. The units are not convertible to college credit.

Professional Development Units (PDU) activities may include a program, course, workshop, seminar, or other pre-approved learning experience. For a course to be eligible for PDU credit and for the activity to be transcribed by the College, it must meet specific criteria.

Foreign Language Requirement effective for everyone graduating from high school in 1997 (and thereafter).  All Oregon four-year public institutions require two years of high school second language for admission. This admission requirement can also be satisfied by two quarters (or semesters) of a college-level second language or demonstrated proficiency in a second language. For additional information, contact an advisor.
