Reading Course Descriptions

Brazosport College uses the Texas Common Course Numbering System in support of efforts to enhance the transferability of credit throughout the state system of colleges and universities. In addition to its descriptive title, each course is identified by a four character prefix (also called a rubric) to identify the department or discipline and a four digit number that is unique to each course within a rubric. The course number should be interpreted as follows:

First digit: level of the course

  0 – transitional  
  1 – freshman  
  2 – sophomore  
  3 – junior  
  4 – senior  
Second digit: number of semester hours of credit
Last two digits: identify a specific course within the rubric or department

For example, ENGL 1301  is a three-hour course in English typically taken the freshman year.

See Directory of Courses by Prefix for a table showing the prefixes associated with commonly used names for the various disciplines of study. There is a brief description of the course content and a list of any prerequisites (courses that must be taken or other conditions that must be met before enrolling in the course) and, in many cases, a tested skill level code in reading, writing, or math that must be met before enrolling in the course. See a counselor for specific information about the skill level testing and requirements.

Required Skill Codes

Some courses offered by Brazosport College require college level skill codes in math, reading and writing.  Students who are certificate seeking, as documented in the student record, are not required to meet these requirements.  Skill codes are enforced for all degree seeking students.
