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.

Primary Activities

The primary activities of the Standing Committee on Course Numbering are:
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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 courses.
  4. Create policies to ensure Statewide Course Numbering System and institution data are matched.
