General education requirements are indicated to the far right of the course subject heading and number. An attribute code in brackets [ ], indicates a course that will fulfill one of the general education Liberal Arts Distribution Requirements (LADR) that became effective Fall 2011. Attribute codes in parentheses ( ) indicate that the course fulfills one of the requirements for students in effect prior to Fall 2011.

Please see the current Liberal Arts Distribution Requirements and the appropriate catalog for previous requirements.
When a course has a special fee (for laboratory materials, etc.), the fee is listed at the end of the course description. The fees are subject to change. Consult the course schedule for the fee in effect when a course is taught.
If a course requires special preparation or background, the prerequisite will be listed in the course description. Any prerequisite may be waived at the discretion of the instructor. Students are encouraged to consult faculty directly to determine preparedness.
Schedule of Courses
Most courses are taught at least once a year. Others are offered in alternate years. Some are offered only upon sufficient demand, by independent contract, or on off-campus programs.
A course schedule for the current term is available online or can be viewed on the bulletin board outside the Registrar’s Office. A tentative course schedule for the following term is also available.
The college reserves the right to add, remove, or modify the courses in its curriculum.
