Standing Committee on Course Numbering
The purpose of the Standing Committee on Course
Numbering is to examine policies and procedures for the assignment
of course numbers, the maintenance of course equivalencies, and the
accuracy of course data. The Standing Committee will make recommendations
to the Articulation Coordinating Committee to modify or enact Statewide
Course Numbering System (SCNS) standard operating procedures to increase
the transferability of postsecondary courses.
The primary activities of the Standing Committee on
Course Numbering are:
- Review course numbering issues that appear to contribute
to a decrease in the transferability of postsecondary
courses. These policies may include course equivalency
guidelines, Gordon Rule course identification, differences
in credit among equated courses, course levels, and use
of laboratory designators.
- Review the inclusion of non-regionally accredited institutions
to facilitate course transfer to public institutions.
This may include consideration of faculty credentials
and transfer credits.
- Review of vocational-technical courses on the Statewide
Course Numbering System to recommend policies for accurate
numbering and transferability. This will include both
vocational-technical center and community college vocational-technical
- Create policies to ensure Statewide Course Numbering
System and institution data are matched.
