Course Naming System:

Course content areas at Tulsa Community College are categorized in “disciplines,” a related group of courses in a specified subject area, such as English (ENGL) or Physics (PHYS). Each course is first assigned a specific discipline name and then a specific four-digit course number, as in ENGL 1113, and a course name, as in Composition I. A brief description of the course content follows the course name and number. If a course is offered as part of a required sequence of courses, the prerequisite requirements for that course are also listed within the catalog course description. Not all courses listed in the catalog are offered each term, and certain courses may be offered on only one campus. Please check the current term class schedule for this information.

Course Numbering System:

  • First digit - The year in which the course is usually taken.*

*Exception: Zero-level (non-credit) courses which may be taken in any term, but usually within the first two semesters.

Credit Hour:

A credit hour consists of a one-hour class period per week for 16 weeks per semester, with the exception of laboratories, practicums, or physical education activity classes in which generally two one-hour periods per week for 16 weeks equals one credit hour. The number of class hours and laboratory hours doubles for a class in an eight-week term.  Note: The time required each week for laboratory may vary from course to course. Please refer to the course syllabus for more information.
