Please refer to the Equivalency Guide Manual for important information regarding abbreviations and definitions of terms.

Common Courses taught at the Washington state community colleges have an ampersand (“&”) symbol appended to the course prefix. To avoid confusion between courses, pay careful attention to the ampersand as some courses that look similar are actually different courses (e.g., ENGL& 101 and ENGL 101) and may have very different UW equivalencies.

Key to symbols:

* Foreign-language courses or programs. See Foreign Language Graduation Requirement for more information.
§ Courses or programs equivalencies that are obsolete.
(LC) Limited credit within specified disciplines. For details, click the (LC) link within individual equivalency entries.
