Explanation of Course References
This Guide lists courses available in each college, school, division, and department. Consult the index for the general fields under which specific courses may be found.
Course Numbering System
001-099 Courses which do not earn graduation credit, but which do earn semester credit; grades in these courses are factored into the student’s grade point average (such as courses needed to make up entrance deficiencies, scheduled tutorials, etc.).
100-199 Lower division undergraduate; freshman level.
200-299 Lower division undergraduate; sophomore level.
300-399 Upper division undergraduate; junior level.
400-499 Upper division undergraduate; senior level.
500-599 Combined graduate/undergraduate; suitable for upper division undergraduates.
Under normal circumstances, undergraduates are concerned only with courses numbered be-low 600. Students interested in the university’s program of graduate studies (courses numbered from 600 to 899) should consult the Graduate School Bulletin. In the few instances in which courses numbered above 599 are included in this catalog, the offering department has specified that undergraduate students may take the course.
