Course Catalog Descriptions

Course descriptions are used for the Bulletin, Axess, data-mining, transfer credit, searching, and accreditation. A good description is short, to-the-point, and focused on the content of the course.

Probably the most important part of the Bulletin are the course descriptions. They guide students to the courses they need in Axess and through the Bulletin, but they also live on for a long time afterwards for purposes of data-mining, transfer credit, searching, and accreditation.
