Course Descriptions


Course Numbering, Credit/Contact Hours, and Course Rotation

UAFS courses are identified by a four-digit number. The first digit indicates the course level; “0” indicates courses which do not apply toward graduation, “1” indicates first-year or freshman-level courses, “2” indicates second-year or sophomore-level courses, “3” indicates third-year or junior-level courses, and “4” indicates fourth-year or senior-level courses. The second and third digits indicate course sequencing. The final digit indicates the number of semester hours of credit: 1 = 1 hour, 2 = 2 hours, etc. For courses offering more than nine hours of credit, a letter will replace the final digit: A = 10, B = 11, C = 12, etc. 

The number of semester hours of credit for the course are shown after Credit Hours. The number after Contact Hours indicates the number of hours each week spent in the instructional activities noted. Offered lists the typical course rotation. This rotation is not guaranteed; course offerings can change due to low enrollment, instructor availability, or other extenuating circumstances.

University of Arkansas System Common Course Numbering

In fall 2025, UAFS will adopt the common courses numbering system (CCN) of the University of Arkansas System. The CCN will bring all System institutions under a common course numbering schema and index to support Arkansas students in transfer, remove barriers to higher education, and ease administrative overhead of determining course equivalency in the processing of transcripts.

The CCN is noted for those courses with an assigned number. Courses without a CCN are pending number assignment or will not be taught after the 2024-2025 academic year.

Arkansas Course Transfer System

The Arkansas Course Transfer System (ACTS) contains information about the transferability of courses within Arkansas public colleges and universities. Students are guaranteed the transfer of applicable credits and the equitable treatment in the application of credits for the admissions and degree requirements. Course transferability is not guaranteed for courses listed in ACTS as “No Comparable Course.” Additionally, courses with a D frequently do not transfer and institutional policies may vary. ACTS may be accessed at the Arkansas Department of Higher Education ACTS webpage.
