Course Codes

The course code comprises the sixth, seventh, and eighth digits in all course numbers. Course codes from 100 to 299 indicate introductory and intermediate undergraduate courses. Codes from 300 to 499 indicate advanced undergraduate courses. Courses coded from 500 to 799 are graduate courses and 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 (example: 01:350:219,220). Two course codes separated by a hyphen indicate that satisfactory completion of the first semester course is a prerequisite to the second semester (example: 01:160:315-316); the first semester may be taken for credit without taking 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 department offering the course.

Unless otherwise indicated, a course normally meets each week for a number of lecture hours equal to the number of credits to be earned. Special hours or modes of class, other than lecture, are usually indicated in italics below the course title.
