Four Alpha/Four Numeric History

Since 1995, the Nebraska Transfer Initiative has involved all six state community colleges establishing common learning objectives for 30 transfer courses. In addition, all six community colleges have jointly developed associate degrees in Electronics, Criminal Justice and Early Childhood Education with potential common curricula being examined in Library Assistant, Nursing, Business and online courses. This large-scale collaboration has created enhanced visibility for the community colleges, seamless articulation among them, leverage for the six colleges to expand articulation with four-year institutions and greater accessibility for students. 

These new prefixes and course numbers became effective with the fall of 2005.

Examples of the new course numbering format include:

ACC 101 – Bookkeeping will change to ACCT 1050

MAT 132 – College Algebra will change to MATH 1420
