Each course at Rutgers University is given a unique eight-digit number, which precedes the course name in the following listing. The first two digits are the administrative code (standing for the faculty or school offering the course), the next three digits are the subject code for the course, and the final three digits are the actual course number.
Administrative Codes. The administrative code for the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences is 11. For a complete list of administrative codes, see the beginning of the Programs of Study and Courses for Liberal Arts and Sciences Students section in this catalog.
Subject Codes. A subject code comprises the third through fifth digits in all course numbers and indicates the subject matter of the course. Courses with the following subject codes are listed in this chapter. (Subject codes are not necessarily major programs of study and do not always have the same code numbers as the curricula.)

Course Numbers. The sixth, seventh, and eighth digits comprise the course code in all course numbers. Two course codes separated by a comma indicate that each semester may be taken independently of the other (example: 11:015:483,484). Two course codes separated by a hyphen indicate that satisfactory completion of the first semester is a prerequisite to the second semester (example: 01:119:101-102); however, credit may be earned for the first semester without registration for the second. In general, course numbers beginning with "1" or "2" (e.g., 101; 210) are intended for students in their first or second year of study at the university, while course numbers beginning with "3" or "4" (e.g., 325; 432) are more advanced courses intended for students in their third or fourth year of study at the university.
Course Credits. Credits awarded for the successful completion of each course are indicated in parentheses following the course title. The credit-prefix E indicates that the credits are not included in the calculation of credits required for graduation ("degree credits"). The notation BA indicates that the number of credits is determined by arrangement with the department offering the course. The notation P/NC indicates that the course is graded on only a Pass/No Credit basis.
Hours of Attendance. Unless otherwise indicated, a course normally meets for a number of lecture hours per week equal to the number of credits to be earned. Special hours or modes of class other than lecture (e.g., recitation; laboratory), are usually indicated below the course description.
Consult the Schedule of Classes for the name(s) of the faculty member(s) currently offering each course.
