About these Course Descriptions
This list of course descriptions reflects the diversity and scope of the many credit courses Chemeketa currently offers. Some of our current courses may not be included here as the college may add classes after this catalog is published. The courses are listed alphabetically by prefix.
You will find prerequisites specified in many of these course descriptions. You must meet these conditions before you enroll in a course. It is your responsibility as a student to fulfill the prerequisite.
Some prerequisites indicate that you must complete certain preparatory courses or must have the consent of the course instructor. To gain consent, meet with the instructor. Consent is based on the instructor’s assessment of your readiness to enroll in the course.
Consult with Chemeketa’s Advising and First Year Programs department or a faculty program advisor for transfer information.
Note 1: The letters, F, W, Sp, and Su near the end of a course description indicate the term (fall, winter, spring, summer) the course is usually offered. For information on when and where classes meet, consult the Schedule of Classes available each term at chemeketa.edu/programs-classes/classes, or access through your MyChemeketa account if you are a registered student.
