Course Information

The number preceding each course title is divided into three parts. The first two digits are the administrative code (standing for a faculty or a school), the next three digits are the subject code, and the final three digits are the course code.

Administrative Codes

The following administrative codes are used for the divisions of Rutgers in this catalog. Administrative codes comprise the first two digits in all course numbers.

  01  School of Arts and Sciences–New Brunswick

  05  Graduate School of Education–Undergraduate

  11  School of Environmental and Biological Sciences

  16  Graduate School–New Brunswick

  20  School of Public Affairs and Administration

  21  Newark College of Arts and Sciences

  25  College of Nursing

  26  Graduate School–Newark

  45  College of Nursing–Graduate


Subject Codes

A subject code indicates the subject matter of the course. Subject codes comprise the third through fifth digits in all course numbers. The subject code for nursing is 705.

Course Codes

The last three digits distinguish one course from another and also indicate the educational level of the course. Course codes from 100 to 299 are used for introductory and intermediate courses; 300 to 499 are used for advanced undergraduate courses, some of which may be taken by graduate students toward an advanced degree. Graduate courses carrying codes from 500 to 799 are described in the graduate catalogs of the university.

Two course codes separated by a comma indicate that each semester course may be taken independently of the other. Two course codes separated by a hyphen (25:705:494-495) indicate that satisfactory completion of the first semester course is a prerequisite for the second semester; the first semester may be taken for credit without the second, except if a statement is added to indicate that both semester courses must be completed in order to receive credit.

Credits awarded for the successful completion of each course are indicated in parentheses following the course title. The notation BA indicates that the number of credits is determined by arrangement with the program offering the course.
