Course Descriptions & Numbering

The catalog menu item Courses A-Z has all Kettering's courses listed with their descriptions for all university courses; the descriptions appear in alphabetical order according to their course letter designations.  These descriptions include any prerequisites (requirements student must satisfy before registering for the course), corequisites (requirements students must satisfy while taking the course), the number of credit hours applied for each course, and, where relevant, the hours devoted to lecture, recitation, and laboratory (see applicable department sections for the total credits required for each major or program). 

The course numbers 591 and 691 shall be used to describe special topics courses.  Special topics courses are one-time offerings whose content is determined by current faculty interest. These courses may be repeated for credit when the course is run with different content.

The course numbers 597 and 697 shall be used to admit credit for transfer or guest courses that are not equivalent to existing Kettering courses within a discipline. These course numbers are not used for study abroad transfer credit.

The course numbers 598 and 698 shall be used to describe transfer courses taken as part of a Kettering University International Studies Program.

The course numbers 599 and 699 shall be used to describe an independent study course. Independent study is student-directed exploration with faculty guidance at an advanced level.  This course may be repeated for credit when the course is run with different content.
