Course Numbers, Credits, Descriptions


Course Numbers

Generally, courses with letter prefixes apply toward degrees and certificates, and courses with 100 and 200 numbers are college transfer courses; those numbered 200 to 299 are considered sophomore-level courses. Be sure to check the degree requirements for the certificate or degree you are seeking to ensure that the course you are taking will be counted.

Course Credits

In order to earn an associate’s degree in two years, students should enroll for an average of 16 college-level credits in fall, winter, and spring terms. If college preparatory courses are required, the number of credits each term would increase accordingly. Curriculum and program requirements described in this catalog provide more information on the program or degree of your choice.

Students participating in intercollegiate athletics, must complete and pass at least 12 credit hours each term for eligibility purposes. Students are encouraged to visit with BMCC’s athletic director and/or our coaches for detailed eligibility requirements.

Reading Course Descriptions

Courses offered at BMCC are listed in this section of the catalog. Not every course is offered every term. Use the schedule of classes to determine quarterly course offerings. Students who plan to transfer should consult with their program advisor to ensure course transferability.
