Course Descriptions

FTC Middletown’s course identification code consists of a three-letter prefix, a three-digit number, and, in some cases, a one-letter suffix. The prefix indicates a subject, program, or department in which the course is offered.

Courses described in this section are listed in alphabetical order.

Read the description of the course carefully before you register for it, noting any prerequisite, corequisite, and the number of class hours. Each description lists the required number of student contact hours per week for a 15 week semester. For example, BSC 101 General Biology 1, 3 lect., 3 lab., 4 cr., meets for three lecture hours and three laboratory hours each week, over a semester of 15 weeks. Four credits are received on successful completion of the course. Consult your faculty advisor if you have any questions about the level or the content of a course.

Due to academic and fiscal considerations, not all courses can be offered each semester of every year. Courses taught only in the fall or spring semesters are so identified; otherwise, courses may be taught both semesters. Therefore, this catalog should not be considered a contractual offer from the college to any prospective student.

Frequency and Timing of Course Offerings

Unless specific semesters are listed, courses are offered on an occasional basis. The college reserves the right to not offer a course when scheduled, based upon budgetary or staffing needs.

Course Grading

Students may take the option of the pass/fail grade instead of the A-F letter grading for courses that are not part of the college-wide requirement, degree program core requirement or electives requirement. For more information on grading options, including for transfer students, please refer to Sections 6.2 Grading Systems and 6.3 Transfer Credits.
