Understanding Course Requirements
Guilford Technical Community College is committed to student success. The college offers courses for students who need additional academic preparation. GTCC requires that students are proficient in reading, writing, and math or a combination of these basic skills before they can enroll in most college courses.
The following is an alpha-numeric listing of course descriptions for all curriculum programs. A three-letter course prefix identifies the program area in which a course is offered. The three or four digit course number identifies a specific course within a program. The course title introduces the subject matter of a course. The group of numbers to the right of a course title gives, in order of information, the lecture hours per week, laboratory and/or shop hours per week, clinic and/or cooperative work hours per week, and the last digit gives the semester credit hours awarded for successful completion of the course.
Additional verbiage is provided at the end of the course description if a course has been approved for transfer under the CAA as either a UGETC, General Education or a Pre-Major/Elective. A list of the most current transferable courses can be found at https://www.nccommunitycolleges.edu/sites/default/files/basic-pages/academic-programs/attachments/transfer_course_list_appendixg_2020.pdf (Please note, not all courses listed on the transfer course list are offered at GTCC).
