How to Read the Programs of Study

LDCC programs of study are designed to create pathways to success for our students.  In each you will find a listing of courses that often have prerequisites and corequisites.  Through advising you will understand the sequential manner in which the courses are listed.  In many of our programs you will find additional exit points such as Certificate of General Studies (CGS), Career and Technical Certificates (CTC), Certificates of Technical Studies (CTS), Technical Diplomas (TD), and our highest level of credential - Associate Degrees.  Students may take the option to complete any or all credentials listed under any program of study.  However, many credentials are stackable.  Often accomplishing a higher level credential requires the completion of a combination of lower level credentials.  Also in each program of study you will find a listing of lecture, lab, total credit hours, and total clock hours for each course.  LDCC adheres to a “collegiate hour” in regard to clock hours.  Therefore the time spent in lecture or lab equals a minimum of 750 minutes for each credit pursued.
