At North Arkansas College all courses carry identifying department prefixes and numbers that designate the level of the course, whether it is a part of a sequence or a one-semester course.
The numbering system aids students in planning programs. The digits in a course number also indicate the level of the course and whether it will carry college credit. Explanation of that system is as follows:
|College Preparatory classes that do not count toward associate degree requirements nor are they intended for transfer.
|Freshmen level courses designed for the associate degree at North Arkansas College or for transfer to other institutions of higher education.
|Advanced or sophomore level courses required in the associate degree program at North Arkansas College or for transfer to institutions of higher education.
|Special project courses, which may carry 1-5 hours credit which may or may not transfer to other institutions.
The college reserves the right to cancel courses each semester for which adequate enrollment cannot be maintained.
The last digit of each four-digit number indicates the number of credit hours for the course.
Courses are alphabetized according to their prefix, not department.
In order for pre-requisite courses to be considered complete, a “C” or better must be obtained.
