Summary

A study of various forms of credit or non-credit used in Florida colleges and universities examines their relationship to traditional college credit, courses, and programs. An expansion in the kinds of credit and their usage is a focus of concern of Florida's Statewide Course Numbering System (SCNS). The practices of Florida postsecondary institutions as they created all forms of credit are reported, and the results of a search for the formal authority and constraints on the uses of the different kinds of credit are outlined. The creation and maintenance of a reliable statewide inventory of courses at the 37 state-supported two- and four-year colleges has raised a number of large and small issues, including the integrity of data collection, inconsistencies in catalog listings, general education patterns, authority and potential changes, developmental-remedial courses, and conversion of occupational courses to the SCNS classification system. Appendices contain a variety of documents from the SCNS and its study, and charts of program and award data from Florida's 28 community colleges. (MSE)
