Special Designations

Special designations may be requested for courses that meet criteria developed by interested faculty from across the district and refined locally for Seattle Central.

These designations meet requirements for students seeking an AA degree.

Courses may be considered for up to two designations; however, the content related to the designation must be a significant and substantial part of the course.

Many courses have only one designation although they address some outcomes for other designations as well. 

The following designations, or tags, may be requested:

In addition, guidelines were developed to describe courses that cover Information Literacy/Technology Literacy, although the current AA degree does not have special course designations for Information Literacy/Technology.

There is currently no textbox in the Automated Course Approval System form in which to place your support statements for special designations.  Until a textbox becomes available, please input your support statement(s) (explain how the course meets the criteria) for each special designation request within the College Supplemental section: Explain why this course is being revised
