Quarter to Semester Conversion Guide

"HOW TO READ THIS TRANSFER GUIDE"

With the start of the Fall, 2005 term College of DuPage will switch from a quarter to semester system. All the transfer guides will contain both quarter and semester course articulation information to assist students and faculty advisors during this transition phase. Quarter term classes have three digit course numbers, while semester course have BOLDED four digit course numbers: For example, ENGLI 101 is a quarter course and ENGLI 1101 is a semester course. In the transfer guides, articulation tables will show a number of course articulation arrangements, for example:

Speec 100, 1100
In the above case the Speech 100 course or 1100 can be used to meet a requirement.
 
Engli 102 + 103, 1102
In above case, English 102 plus 103 or English 1102 can be used to meet the requirement.
 
Math 115, 1115 and 116 and 117, 1116
This case describes two situations: 1.) Math 115 equals 1115 and Math 116 + 117 equals 1116
2.) Math 115 + 116 + 117 equals Math 1115 + 1116

The transfer guides are a valuable tool to assist students and faculty advisors with the transfer process. Given the complex nature of the articulation process should you have any questions regarding course equivalencies contact the College Articulation Office at 630/942.2500.
