Courses are identified by a six-character alpha numeric code. The first three characters identify the subject code, and the next three numbers identify the particular course per the North Carolina Common Course Library of offerings.

This listing of courses includes prerequisites, corequisites, and fees associated with courses. In addition, the number of lecture, lab, clinic, and credit hours are shown per course. For example:

This course provides an opportunity to enhance acquisition of the fundamental elements of the Spanish language. Emphasis is placed on the progressive development of basic listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills through the use of various supplementary learning media and materials. Upon completion, students should be able to comprehend and respond with grammatical accuracy to spoken and written Spanish and demonstrate cultural awareness. This course has been approved to satisfy the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement for transferability as a pre‑major and/or elective course requirement.

SPA 111, Elementary Spanish I, notes a prerequisite of ENG-002; or satisfactory reading and writing placement scores. This means that a student must have successfully completed ENG-002, or have reading and writing scores on the College Placement Test that indicate college readiness. Prerequisites must be met for a student to enroll in a course.

SPA 111 also notes a corequisite of SPA 181. This means that a student must enroll in SPA 181 during the same term he/she enrolls in SPA 111. Corequisites must be taken together, as the learning experiences in each course complement one another.

SPA 111 has 3 lecture hours; this means that the course will meet for three hours each week in a typical 16-week semester. If the course is offered in an 8-week session, the course will meet for six hours each week.

SPA 111 has no lab hours in addition to the lecture hours, nor does it have clinical hours.

Upon successful completion of the course, a student will receive three credit hours of credit towards the educational goal.

SPA 181 has zero lecture hours and two lab hours. This means the student will be in a lab experience for two hours per week in a 16-week semester, four in an 8-week term, and receive one hour of credit towards the educational goal.

Work-based Learning

Work-based Learning allows students to gain academic credit through work experience related to the program of study. This plan integrates classroom study with employment and is based on the principle that learning does not confine itself to academic achievement but is equally dependent upon practical experience. The student enrolled in the Work-based Learning Program takes a prescribed program of study for an associate degree program. In lieu of elective courses, the student may participate in a supervised work experience. The work experience is planned, progressive, and closely related to the curriculum and career interest of the student. Evaluation of job performance is made jointly by the employer, the student, and the College instructor. The student’s letter grade is based on this evaluation. Work-based Learning is limited to particular programs of study (see Programs of Study). Students must have completed 9 semester hours (6 in the core curriculum), and maintain a Grade Point Average of 2.5. Students should see an advisor for more information about this opportunity.

Online Learning

Craven Community College offers a wide variety of distance learning courses each year. Students may take courses which are “hybrid,” or “online” in nature. Students may access these courses from home, on campus, or wherever they can obtain internet access. Courses are delivered via the Moodle Learning Management System.

Delivery Method Definitions

  • Online Course - An online course is defined as one in which 100% of all face-to-face class meetings are replaced by required instruction completed at a distance and managed online through the Learning Management System. Online courses allow students to take courses from geographically remote locations without the need to come to campus. The tuition for these courses includes a distance learning fee.
  • Hybrid Course - A hybrid course is defined as one where some but not all instruction is conducted and managed online through the Learning Management System. Time traditionally spent in the classroom is reduced but not eliminated. The goal of hybrid courses is to join the best features of a traditional class with the best features of online learning. Tuition for these courses includes a distance learning fee.

Distance Learning Orientation

Students enrolled in any hybrid or online course are required to complete a Distance Learning Orientation. When a student registers for a hybrid or online course, they will have access to the Distance Learning Student Orientation via the Moodle Learning Management System prior to the start of the semester. Students registering during the early registration period should have access within 7 days of registering for the course. Students registering during late registration should have access by 8am the following business day. Students are encouraged to complete the orientation prior to the start of the semester.

Students will be issued a certificate of completion in PDF format upon successful completion of the orientation. Certificates of completion must be presented to their instructor upon request and are valid for three years from the date of completion.

Technology Requirements

Students enrolling in distance learning courses must have Internet access for all distance learning courses. A broadband connection is highly recommended. There are several locations on campus that have computers available for student use:

  • Academic Support Center – New Bern and Havelock Campuses
  • Godwin Memorial Library – New Bern Campus

Hardware Requirements

  • Windows Vista or later/Mac OS X or later
  • 2 GB of RAM minimum

Software Requirements

  • Web Browser – Firefox 3.6 or higher (Internet Explorer is not recommended nor supported for use with distance learning courses).
  • Email – Students are required to use their school issued Gmail account for use with distance learning courses.
  • Plug-ins – The most current version of the following plug-ins are required:
    • Adobe Acrobat Reader
    • Adobe Flash Player
    • Apple QuickTime
    • Windows Media Player
    • Java
  • Antivirus software – Any current brand (e.g., AVG, McAfee or Norton) installed, running, and kept current by promptly installing the upgrades and patches made available by the software manufacturer.
  • Word-processing software – Microsoft Word or other word processing software is required. Students not using Microsoft Word must be able to save their documents in “RTF” (Rich Text Format).

Please note that some programs may have additional hardware and software requirements.

Selecting Courses

Academic, financial and academic considerations preclude the College offering all the courses listed each semester. The College reserves the right to cancel courses offered based upon budgetary, enrollment, or staffing needs.

Students should consult an advisor and the recommended sequence of courses in the Program Description section of this catalog to determine which courses to take which semester to ensure efficient progress through the degree requirements. Registration periods are noted on the Academic Calendar contained in this catalog and also published on the college website.

The schedule of course offerings (Course Schedule) is published twice annually: the Summer and Fall Course Schedule and the Spring Course Schedule. The course schedule is published on the College website.
