Course Descriptions

Courses Related in Content

Active participatory courses not approved as repeatable, that share a similar primary educational objective in physical education, visual arts, and performing arts are grouped together. Students are allowed four enrollments within each group of courses related in content (CRC), but each course in the group may be taken only once. This limitation applies even if a student receives a substandard grade or is approved to repeat a course due to extenuating circumstances.

In addition, all evaluative and non-evaluative grades count toward the four enrollment limitation and all grades and credits received count in computing the students GPA. The one and only exception is when a course is repeated pursuant to a significant lapse of time, the District may allow the previous grade and credit to be disregarded in computing the student’s GPA.

Course Numbering System at College of the Sequoias

The Course Number System provided below is to help students easily identify those courses needed as they plan their studies at College of the Sequoias.

All courses numbered 299 or lower are associate degree credit courses. They can be applied toward the 60-unit AA/AS graduation requirement and for vocational certificates.

Course Numbers Explanation

Course Numbers Explanation
001-099 Courses accepted by the University of California System (See UC Transfer Course List for unit limitations). For specific course articulation (equivalency), consult www.assist.org, the Counseling Office or the Transfer Center.
001-199 Courses accepted by the California State University system and most other four-year colleges and universities. For specific course-to-course articulation (equivalency), consult www.assist.org, the Counseling Office or the Transfer Center.
200-299 Associate degree applicable. Although not intended for university transfer, these courses may be accepted by some colleges in certain majors, especially if provided for in an articulation agreement.
300-399 College credit, non-degree applicable and basic skill courses. Effective Summer Semester, 2008, students enrolled in the 300 series (course number) of classes will be graded on an “A,” “B,” “C,” and “Pass/No Pass” basis.
400 Non-credit, general courses

Course Identification Numbering System (C-ID)

The California Course Identification Numbering System (C-ID) is a statewide numbering system independent from the course numbers assigned by individual California Community Colleges. Courses approved for the C-ID program are given a C-ID designation. College of the Sequoias courses with a C-ID designation will articulate with any other California Community College with the same C-ID designation. For example, ECON 040 has been approved for C-ID ECON 202 so ECON 040 is indirectly articulated with all other California Community College courses approved for C-ID ECON 202. In addition to the community college to community college articulation, a course with a C-ID course designation will articulate with California State Universities that have approved articulation with that C-ID designation. To access the CSU courses that have been identified by CSU campuses as comparable to C-ID descriptors visit the C-ID Web Site at www.c-id.net. You can search for courses by discipline or CSU campus.

Course requirements vary between colleges and universities and students are encouraged to consult the ASSIST database at www.assist.org and a COS counselor for program planning and course selection. Students may also consult the ASSIST database for specific information on C-ID course designations for all California Community Colleges. College of the Sequoias lists all C-ID course designations parenthetically after each course description in this catalog.
