Curriculum Policy details
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 include a specific requirement to meet this outcome.
To designate a course with one or more tags, check the applicable tags on the course establishment form and include an explanation of how the course meets the criteria.
