Oregon State University

Commonly Numbered Course List

APAA - Academic Programs

Welcome! APAA facilities and coordinates the preparation, oversight, and implementation of academic programs and courses.

House Bill 2913 directed the Oregon University System and Community Colleges to jointly develop, to the extent possible, a common course numbering system for lower-division transfer courses. The "Commonly Numbered Course List" represents a good faith effort to meet the requirements of the legislation. The list of courses is recommended for use by campuses' faculty and administration as they develop or revise academic programs to better facilitate students transferring from community colleges to public four-year institutions. OSU agreed to this list after review of the list by all affected departments.

The "Commonly Numbered Course List" includes course descriptions in addition to the course numbers and titles. Course numbers and title should follow the usage in the list. Descriptions may vary.
