Course Description Requests

A course description is a written explanation of a course that includes topics covered, credit hours and lecture/lab hours. This information is taken directly from the course catalog. Course descriptions are most often used when transferring your COD credits to another college or university. The school may need this information regarding the courses you completed when evaluating your transcript.
