Course Codes

The course code comprises the sixth, seventh, and eighth digits in all course numbers.

When two course codes are separated by a comma, each term course may be taken independently of the other. If two course codes are separated by a hyphen, students must complete satisfactorily the first course before taking the second one. Students may take the first course for credit without taking the second course unless a statement is added to indicate that both term credits must be taken in order to receive credit.
