Common Course Numbering System

The  Colorado Community College Common Courses (Common Course Numbering System – CCNS) has been developed to facilitate ease of transfer for community college students from one community college to the other and from the community college to the four-year educational institutions, to improve program planning, to increase communication among all of the colleges, and to facilitate articulation arrangements from high schools to the community colleges. The scope includes all courses offered for credit at the community colleges, and the structure is content specific rather than program, department or discipline specific. The goal of the CCNS is to establish consistency in course offerings across the system.

All courses that have the same course learning outcomes shall have the same prefix, course number, course title, course description, credit (or credit range), and where appropriate, GT Pathways course competencies and content criteria.

For discrepancies in course listings between Old CCNS and CourseLeaf, please submit a ticket to the Work Request Form with specific details regarding the course in question.
