PACC Course Development

The courses developed and reviewed in the new PACC process fall into the following general categories:        

  1. Transfer courses, which are intended to transfer to four-year institutions, and include general education courses, majors courses and electives
  2. Occupational​ courses, which are intended to support career objectives and may or may not transfer to four-year institutions as electives.
  3. Remedial/pre-credit courses, which are not intended for transfer, but are aligned with transfer courses.
The new PACC process does not oversee courses in adult education, continuing education and basic courses.​

Questions to be considered about course purpose include, but are not limited to:        

  • ​How will the course fit within a curriculum (Is it a general education core or elective course, a non-general education elective and is it a stand-alone or sequential course?)
  • In what ways is the course unique from other courses?
  • Why is the course valuable for students?
  • What is the student population the course is expected to serve?
  • What knowledge or skills will the students gain from the course?
  • Does the course require special resources and funding?
