Courses of Instruction
The lettered prefix before each course number represents an abbreviation of the course’s discipline.
The first digit of the course number represents the level of the course. The following course numbering system is used:
100 – 199 Freshman
200 – 299 Sophomore
300 – 399 Junior
400 – 499 Senior
Freshman and sophomore students should not enroll in courses more than one level above their academic classification without consulting their advisor (e.g., Freshmen may not enroll in 300 level courses without permission; sophomores may not enroll in 400 level courses without permission).
Each course description is followed by a 3-number sequence providing the following information: first digit, number of lecture hours per week; second digit, number of laboratory hours per week; third digit, number of credit hours granted for the course. For example, a class described as 3:1:4 would have three lecture hours, one lab hour, and four hours of total credit.
