Courses are listed in alphabetical order by general subject and in numerical order within each general subject. Courses at the first-year level are numbered 111 to 199 or 1000 to 1999; those at the second-year level are numbered 200 to 299 or 2000 to 2999. All courses at SFCC numbered 100 through 110 are developmental in content and will not be counted toward graduation requirements.
Prerequisites represent the minimum skill level necessary for success in a course. If a student has the prerequisite skills but has gained them outside the classroom, they may see a faculty adviser for permission to enroll.
Prerequisites must be completed with a grade of C or better before a student may enroll in a course that requires them. Students may be stopped from enrolling or may be disenrolled if pre- or corequisites are not met.
A math course taken more than three years ago cannot fulfill a prerequisite for a subsequent math course unless a student can demonstrate proficiency. A math or science course taken more than five years ago cannot be used to fulfill a prerequisite for another course. Students may fulfill math prerequisites by scoring at the appropriate level on the college’s math placement test.
For college-level courses, there is an assumption of college-level reading and writing skills, whether or not prerequisites are stated for a particular course.
