HOW TO READ THE ON-LINE CLASS SCHEDULE

Please refer to the example below:

  • The first line of the listing, in this case, "BAKING, PROFESSIONAL - 111 Baking Procedures, Safety and Sanitation," is the name of the course. Note that it is blue with a line under it. This means it will link to another screen. When you click on this link you will be taken to the On-line LATTC Catalog Course Descriptions. From this page you will need to navigate your way to the Class Description page. It is here in the on-line catalog, you will find information about the number of units, prerequisites, repeatability, transferability of the class, the number of lab and lecture hours and the description of the class. Remember in the case of a discrepancy between the printed and on-line versions of any entry, you should contact the appropriate campus office for clarification.

  • Under "Section", you will find a number, which is also a link. This will take you to another screen, which will give you more specific information about that section number. The remainder of the listing should be pretty self explanatory.

  • Section number: Be sure the page you are looking at is for the proper section number since some classes are given under more than one section number.

  • Course name and number.

  • Course Description: There will be a brief course description followed by a more detailed description.

  • Information Bar: This table will give you up to date information about the status of the class. You will be able to tell if the class is open and when and where it meets. This should help you in planning your class schedule.
  • Section Number: This is a second chance to confirm that you are looking at the correct information. This Section Number should agree with the number at the top of the page.

  • Subject: This is the Course name and number presented in the shorthand version used in the catalog.

  • Status: Open=the class is open and accepting students. You will be guaranteed a seat, provided you are in attendance the first day of classes. Closed=the class is closed. You may still register for the class but you will be placed on a waiting list. If the demand for the class is such that another class can be formed and an instructor and room can be found, you will be contacted with information about meeting times and location.

  • Ln: Length of class. S=short term. F=full term. All Summer and Winter classes are considered short term classes. This is a class that meets less than a full 18 week semester. Most Spring and Fall classes are full term. Certain of these classes fall under the category of short term classes.

  • Limit: This number indicates the maximum number of students accepted into a class. The instructor, at his or her descression may allow additional students to enroll provided the meeting room can accomadate the extra load.

  • Active: The number of students currently enrolled in the class. As long as this number is less than the limit number, you will be guaranteed a seat, provided you are in attendance the first day of classes.

  • Hours: The number of hours the class is scheduled to meet each week.

  • Wait: The number of students on the waiting list.

  • Room: The room number the class is scheduled to meet. Since meeting rooms are occasionally changed, it is advisable to arrive early the first day of class. Any room changes will be posted.

  • Instructor: The name of the primary instuctor. Some classes are taught by several instructors who "team teach".

  • Begin Date: The date the class begins. Students who are preregistered in a class and miss the first meeting may lose their right to a place in the class, but the instructor may consider special circumstances.

  • End Date: The last day the class meets.

  • Last updated: The above information is data base driven and is automatically updated as needed to insure you are looking at the most current information. The date and time you see here reflect the latest update.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PREREQUISITES

Many courses listed in the class schedule will indicate prerequisite, co-requisite/concurrent enrollment or recommended preparation/advisory listed after the name of the course. These requirements were made after careful consideration by the faculty of that discipline. The Los Angeles Community College District has adopted a policy based upon a model developed by the State Chancellor's Task Force in conjunction with the State Academic Senate and Chief Instructional Officers and based upon Title V Article 2.5 Section 55200 and Article 4 Section 55530 of the Matriculation Regulations. In other words, your success is our primary goal.

Terminology

Challenge Process:
Prerequisites, co-requisites/concurrent enrollment requirements must be followed. If you do not agree with the requirement made by the faculty, you have the right to challenge. Contact the Matriculation Department in "R-100" for the challenge process procedures and form (see "Draft" on page 18). Once a challenge form is submitted, the committee will review your request and documentation. You will be notified within five (5) working days of the final decision.

Recommended Preparation/Advisories:
Recommended preparation advisories are classes or skills you are advised to have.

CO-requisite/Concurrent Enrollment:
This is a faculty requirement of a class that must be taken simultaneously with another class to maximize your success.

Prerequisites:
These are classes or skills you must have completed with a grade of "C" or better prior to enrolling in the class. The faculty of that discipline made these requirements because they feel it is necessary for your successful completion of the course.

Conditional enrollment:
Students may conditionally enroll in a course for the following semester/term while currently enrolled in the prerequisite course. Those students who do not successfully pass (with a "C" or better) the prerequisite course will be administratively excluded/dropped, from the advanced course.
