Course Descriptions


To enroll in 100 or 200 level courses with established prerequisites or minimum Accuplacer scores, students must meet the established prerequisites, minimum cutoff Accuplacer scores, be exempt from assessment testing, or successfully complete developmental courses. It is recommended that students enrolled in developmental  courses  should not be concurrently enrolled in 200 level courses.  Non-degree seeking students and those auditing courses are exempt from this requirement but must meet established course prerequisites. Basic skills instruction must be completed with the first 30 credit hours of attendance at  the college. Courses numbered 100–199 are usually for first year students while 200 level courses are generally for sophomores. Students wishing to take 200-level courses should consult their academic advisor or instructor to determine whether taking these courses is appropriate.

Some academic courses may require enrollment in sequential order. For example, students must take English Composition I (ENG 121) before they may enroll in English Composition II (ENG 122). Courses requiring a prescribed sequence will have a prerequisite listed at the end of the course description. Students need not complete both semesters of a sequence to receive credit for the course that a student takes. However, students should be aware that other colleges or universities may require completion of the total sequence for acceptance of any credit. Students should consult the catalog of the institution to which they intend to transfer or ask their academic advisor for assistance. Additionally, some courses may indicate a co-requisite, which means that the students must enroll in another course during the same semester unless the students have already completed it.

Occupational courses must be taken in prescribed sequence. Students must obtain consent of instructor to take any occupational course out of sequence.

How to read these course descriptions

The credit hour breakdown is shown to the right of the course title. Example: ACC 121 Accounting Principles I 4(3-1). The figure outside the parenthesis indicates the total number of semester hours of credit. Inside the parentheses, the first figure indicates the number of credit hours of lecture, and the second figure indicates the number of credit hours of laboratory experience. Actual hours spent in the classroom will vary according to class type. Please see the class schedule for actual class meeting times. An example of credit hour breakdown is:

Total Credits Lecture Credits Lab Credits
4 ( 3   1)

* The vocational/technical laboratory is designed to give the instructor the flexibility to include the proper mixture of theory and skill development and generally consists of 1/3 theory and 2/3 laboratory work. Although the figures after the course title may indicate all laboratory work, the proper amount of theory is covered.

Guaranteed transfer courses are noted with two letters and a number, i.e., AH1, CO2, SC1, after the the course title. They fulfill Common Core General Education Requirements for the Associate of Arts and the Associate of Science degrees. These courses have been articulated with the state four-year colleges and universities in Colorado (except Colorado School of Mines) and are guaranteed to transfer. These gtPathways courses are also common to all community colleges in Colorado and fulfill the same general education requirements at these institutions.  All Guaranteed transfer course have a pre-requisite of college level skills determined by Accuplacer score, ACT or SAT score.  Co-enrollment in CCR 094/ENG 121 courses is possible.

Many of these courses are available via LCC Online or CCCOnline.

Please note that prerequisites, as applicable, are listed with each course.
