The course codes are the basis of EBC's computerized academic records and also give the student specific information. The letters at the beginning indicate the course's place within the various subdivisions of the curriculum as follows:
|BO||Bible: Old Testament||BN||Bible: New Testament||BI||Bible (OT or NT)|
|BT||Biblical Theology||PS||Professional Studies||CM||Christian Ministries|
|GH||History||GL||Language / Communication||GP||Philosophy|
|GR||Religion and Culture||GK||Sciences||GS||Social Science|
The first digit following the letters indicates the year in which the course is ideally taken as follows:
0 - First year or any Non-Degree/Diploma credit course on special topics
1 - First year; foundational and introductory material
2 - Second year; may be foundational or be based on foundational material
3 - Third year; designed for and leads to completion of a degree
4 - Fourth year; advanced courses in specialized areas requiring specific background.
The second and third digits have the function of grouping and ordering courses. An alphabetical letter following the numbers indicates that the course has been updated or succeeds a previous course with the same number, or may denote a variant of a broad course name. The second alphabetical letter, if "A", indicates the course is taught on campus; if "C" or "I", that it is a Distance Education course. Unless otherwise noted, all courses are worth three semester hours of academic credit.
