Course Abbreviations

Each course is assigned a five-digit number. The first digit indicates the level (year) at which the course is offered; the second, third and fourth digits distinguish one course from another within the same department; the fifth digit reflects the amount of semester-hour credit assigned to the course. In indicating the level or year of the course, 0 is used for sub-freshman; 1 for freshman; 2 for sophomore; 3 for junior; 4 for senior; 5 for senior-graduate; and 6, 7, 8 and 9 for graduate.

The fifth digit shows semester-hour credit with one exception—zero is assigned to those courses that include one or more of the following features: non-credit, credit value that includes a fraction, or the course has a variable credit value that is determined at the time of enrollment on an individual basis.

Thus the course, "English 10803" (or ENGL 10803) is a freshman- level course (first digit) that carries three semester hours of credit (fifth digit). The three middle digits (second, third and fourth) identify it as a specific course in the Department of English.

When the term "advanced courses" is used, it refers to those of junior rank (30000 level) or higher.

In designating courses, departments use the four-letter subject code (such as "ENGL" for English) that has been devised for Web-based registration.

The codes are to be interpreted as follows:
