University Parallel Programs

Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College is a comprehensive community college offering University parallel programs that may be transferred for full credit to senior institutions toward satisfaction of requirements for a Bachelor’s degree.

After reviewing the section of suggested studies, students should discuss their choices with a counselor/advisor that will assist in scheduling courses. Final responsibility for this rests with the student.

Numbering of Courses/Student Classification

Courses are identified by name and number. Those numbered from 1001 to 1999 are considered freshman courses and those from 2001 to 2999, sophomore courses. The courses offered in Developmental Studies are not designed for transfer credit (these courses include MAT 0113 , MAT 0123 , MAT 1233 , REA 0113 , and ENG 0113 ). Developmental courses are not considered in calculating GPA and semester hours to meet graduation requirements. A student who has earned less than 24 semester hours is designated a freshman; one who has earned 24 semester hours or more and 48 quality points is considered a sophomore. As a general rule, a student should choose courses in accordance with his/her class designation.
