Texas Common Course Numbering System


The University of Houston-Downtown is a participant in the Texas Common Course Numbering System (TCCNS). This system ensures that if a student takes a course bearing a common course number at another college or university, UH-Downtown will accept the course in transfer as equivalent to the corresponding UH-Downtown course. Common course numbers have a four-letter prefix followed by a four-digit number. The four-letter prefix identifies the subject area. For example, ENGL is the common prefix for English courses, and COSC is the common prefix for computer science courses. The four-digit number following the prefix identifies a specific course with the subject area.

Each digit in the four-digit sequence gives additional information about the course. The first digit identifies the course as either freshman level (1) or sophomore level (2). The second digit identifies the number of credit hours students earn upon completing the course. The final two digits indicate the sequence in which courses are generally taken. Thus, French I (FREN 1311) is taken before French II (FREN 1312).

In this Catalog, for courses corresponding to those in the TCCNS, the common course number is indicated in parentheses at the end of the course description. The preceding page lists all UH-Downtown courses for which a common course number exists. More information about the Texas Common Course Numbering System is available from the Office of Admissions (Room 326-South; 713-221-8533).
