Course Descriptions


Course Codes

Prerequisites

This section of the catalog identifies what the specific prerequisites, if any, are for each course. Course prerequisites are requirements that students must meet before they can enroll in a particular course. A student must earn a grade of C (2.0) or higher in prerequisite courses, unless otherwise noted, or unless the student receives the department chair’s written approval for the class or program.

Students must complete the prerequisites for a course before they can enroll in that class. As students register for classes, the system will check their student records for prerequisite requirements. If these requirements are found in the record, the student will be registered in the class, but if they are not found, the system will not allow registration for that course.

For information about departmental policies regarding prerequisites, contact the appropriate dean’s office.

Course Numbering

The numbers from 0-99 designate developmental courses and certain professional/technical classes. These classes are not college level. Classes numbered from 100-299 are college-level and generally transferable to baccalaureate degree programs.

Courses numbered 099, 199, or 299 designate independent study and field experience classes. Courses numbered 098, 198, or 298 designate experimental or exploratory classes. Cooperative field experience (co-op) courses are assigned the 190 and 290 numbered series. Community service courses are numbered with 076 and are not awarded credit.

Courses listed in this catalog constitute the most recent record of the total academic program of the college. Listing does not mean that all courses are offered every quarter or every year. Consult the class schedule for specific course offerings.

Common Course Numbering

Washington’s community and technical colleges want to make it easier for students to transfer credits among the state’s 34 community and technical colleges. YVC has moved to a common course numbering system, which will mean that the same course will be titled and numbered in a similar way at every community and technical college in the state.

There are several changes in course names and numbers for YVC. The changes should help you know that a course you have taken at one Washington College is the same at another, and the course will transfer easily.

Common courses are identified by an “&” following the department abbreviation. Transfer courses not identified as common will still transfer under the Direct Transfer Agreement as in the past. Please direct questions to the Registrar in the Enrollment Services Office at the phone number listed in the directory.

Definitions and Codes

Co-requisite: These are one or more courses that must be taken together in the same quarter. For example, a lecture and lab in Chemistry.

Cross-disciplined courses: Courses in two different disciplines with the same course description and credits. Credit cannot be given for both courses.
