Common Course Numbers

All universities and colleges in the North Dakota University System (NDUS) have agreed on Common Course Numbers (CCNs) for many of the courses they have in common. When students transfer from one NDUS institution to another, the CCN transfer courses will fulfill all the same requirements, as would the CCN course at the new school. Course descriptions for each course are found under the individual department sections. The CCN notation in the course description indicates MSU courses that are recognized as common within the North Dakota University System. A complete CCN course listing is located at
