Colorado Community College Common Courses
CCNS (Common Course Numbering System)
and access guide»
Courses with common content carry the same prefix, number, title, credits, description, competencies and outline. These commonly described courses facilitate transfer and articulation arrangements for Colorado's secondary and community college students and ensure curriculum quality across the colleges.
Introduction for Students
The Colorado Community College Common Courses
include all courses taught both at the community college level and at the area Technical schools. Each course listing includes credit hours, a description, expected competencies and a course outline along with a listing of all schools offering that course.
Once you have found the courses you are interested in, it’s always a good idea to check back with your advisor to be sure it fits in with your educational plan.
Introduction for Faculty and Advisors
We have provided you with all the information you will need to enter new courses into the database. This is the place to find procedures and course guide templates as well as information on AACRAO guidelines and Bloom’s Taxonomy. We have also included a matrix for awarding credit for prior learning.
For those faculty and staff
who need it, the Proposed and the Archived Database can be found here
. Both of these are password protected. If you don’t have the password, it is available from the CCCS Office of Academic and Student Services.
There is also a link here to the ongoing crosswalk. From the time of original entry into the database, many courses have changed number, changed prefix or perhaps been deleted as duplicative. This is where we are recording all of the changes to the courses represented in the database. Please bear in mind that this is a work in progress, and while we have made every effort to be complete some courses may not be represented. If you have any questions about a course that you feel should be in the crosswalk, please contact Lauren Kordupleski
in the CCCS Office of Academic and Student Services.
