Common Course Number System
The common course number system is helpful to students who are looking to transfer to other colleges or universities by making the transfer process easier within the community college system and allowing for an easier course comparison and transcript evaluation for students transferring within the community college system or from Gateway to a Connecticut baccalaureate institution. The common course number system is also helpful to students who are transferring into programs within the State University system, the University of Connecticut, and independent institutions.
