Courses


Common Course Numbering System

In addition to the LSU Eunice course number, some courses are identified by a four-character “rubric” and a four-digit number, ex. “MATH1021 (CMAT1213) College Algebra”. These courses are part of the Statewide Course Catalog published by the Louisiana Board of Regents. The Statewide Course Catalog lists those courses for which there is statewide agreement to minimum course content to be covered to prepare the student for subsequent course work. Courses with matching common course numbers will be accepted for transfer as indicated on the Louisiana Board of Regents Master Course Articulation Matrix. For additional explanation of the Statewide Course Catalog and Common Course Numbers, consult www.regents.state.la.us.
