Common Course Numbering System

Common Course Numbering System (CCNS)

The Wyoming Common Course Numbering System (CCNS) was developed in cooperation with the community colleges and the University of Wyoming to develop and maintain a common transfer process system that uses common course numbering for all undergraduate courses provided at the community colleges and the University of Wyoming. 

The development and ongoing maintenance of the statewide course numbering system, including determining course equivalencies, shall be accomplished with the assistance of appropriate committees that shall include faculty members and staff of the community colleges and the University of Wyoming.

80% Rule Explained

Course content and principles need to be at least 80% similar to be considered an equivalent course. These courses are considered an equivalent.
