Course Descriptions


SLCC Prefix Key

Following is an alphabetical list of descriptions of courses offered by South Louisiana Community College. Each course is listed alphabetically, by a four-letter prefix and course number, followed by four numbers (x-x-x-x). These four numbers in parentheses indicate lecture hours per week, lab hours per week, equivalent internship/clinical/work experience per week and total credit hours, for a 15 week semester as shown below. If the semester length is reduced the number of hours will be proportionately increased (i.e. In a 12 week semester these hours are increased by a third, in an 8 week semester they will double and in a 4 week semester they will quadrupled). When enrolling, be careful of mixing semester lengths as the hour requirements for courses may overlap each other and not allow you to complete any course. Remember you are required to complete all the instructional activities and meet course class attendance requirements. Work with your advisor if you required enrolling in differing semester lengths to ensure there are no time clashes.

Course Prefix Course Number Course Title Hrs. of Lecture per wk. Hrs. of Lab per wk. Equivalent Hrs. of Internship/ Clinical/Work Experience per wk. * Credit hours
ENGL 1010 Rhet & Comp 3 0 0 3


* The hours that are required for Internship/ Clinical/ Work Experience have been expressed as if they occur each week in a typical 15 week semester. This may not be case and this experience may be full-time over several weeks of the semester. Please work with an Advisor to understand the commitment required to complete such activities and how they will influence your scheduling of other classes.

Classification of Courses; D, UN, UT

  • Those courses labeled with a “D” and numbered 0-0999 are developmental, and credits earned may not be used to satisfy degree requirements.
  • Courses numbered 1000-1999 are freshman-level courses designed primarily for students of this classification.
  • Courses numbered 2000-2999 are sophomore-level courses designed primarily for students of this classification
  • Courses labeled with “UN” are undergraduate courses that are nontransferable credits
  • Courses labeled “UT” are undergraduate transferable credits.

Pre-requisites, Concurrency, Co-requisites

Some courses have pre-requisites, concurrency, or co-requisites listed.

A Prerequisite is an academic requirement that must be satisfied prior to enrolling in a course. A student requesting a course must have completed all pre-requisites listed for that course or must otherwise demonstrate to the instructor and appropriate Divisional Dean that s/he has had the equivalent preparation.

The statement of Concurrency in the course description describes a student’s ability to take a course and its pre-requisites(s) in the same term. A statement of “none” means there is no ability to take the courses pre-requisites at the same time as the required course. In this case you must have must have completed the required pre-requisites in an earlier semester. If course codes appear are listed after the Concurrency requirement it indicates that these pre-requisites can be taken at the same time as the course.

A Co-requisite is an academic requirement that a course must be taken together with another course(s) in the same semester. This requires that a student must enroll in theses co-requisite courses in addition to the required course. Failure to do so will not allow you to enroll. A student who believes they have satisfied the pre requisite requirements must demonstrate this to the appropriate Divisional Dean that s/he has either had the prior or equivalent preparation or is currently satisfying the requirement. Descriptions of courses should be read in order to determine if there are required pre-requisites or co-requisites that must be satisfied.

Course Description and Louisiana Board of Regents Common Course Matrix equivalency
A short description of the course content will be made in the paragraphs below the course title. If the course has equivalency in the common course matrix of the Louisiana Board of Regents, the equivalent code will be stated along with the short course description.

    SURG 1321 Surgical Technology Scrub Role

    (5-2-0) 6 Credits UN
    This course introduces the student to the practice of surgical technology regarding patient care in the surgical setting. The focus of this course is on skills that are specifically those of the first scrub role. It is designed to teach the principles and practice of the scrub role in an active hands-on manner, as well as in the traditional classroom setting. This course demonstrates how the principles are integrated with the practices at all times and allows the student to transfer information learned in the classroom into the skills needed in the operating room. The student will, by the end of this course, demonstrate mastery of a CLINICAL SKILLS PRACTICUM to test the students’ ability to scrub, gown, glove, and set-up and perform a routine procedure, and break down a room properly in the prescribed amount of time. The CLINICAL SKILLS PRACTICUM must be successful completed before the student scrubs any procedures at a clinical site.
