The Omnibus is not a term understood by colleges on transcripts.
Consequently, we have developed course language that colleges understand and accept.
The chart below provides the names we recommend if a student has taken both the Primary and Secondary courses in a 12-month period.
|Omnibus I||World Ancient History I||Doctrine & Theology I||World Ancient Literature I|
|Omnibus II||World Medieval History I||Doctrine and Theology II||World Medieval Literature I|
|Omnibus III||U.S., British & Modern History I||Doctrine & Theology III||U.S., British & Modern Literature I|
|Omnibus IV||World Ancient History II||Doctrine & Theology IV||World Ancient Literature II|
|Omnibus V||World Medieval History II||Doctrine and Theology V||World Medieval Literature II|
|Omnibus VI||U.S., British & Modern History II||Doctrine & Theology VI||U.S., British & Modern Literature II|
Students are required to take both Primary and Secondary of the same Omnibus level within the same 12-month period
in order to receive three credits. Primary courses are weighted 60% and Secondary courses 40% for a final combined grade
using the formula below. This grade is applied to each course credit.
(Primary course grade x 0.6) + (Secondary course grade x 0.4)
Students who complete either a Primary or a Secondary Omnibus course, but not both, within 12 months, should be given one credit.
The following chart provides the recommended course names for transcripts.
