Course Numbering

Courses are numbered as follows:

Lower Division

000 level
100 level
200 level

Upper Division

300 level
400 level


500-600 level   Graduate

The number in parentheses that follows each course title indicates the number of credits that may be earned in the course. Class hours, if different from credits, are indicated at the end of the course description. Where there are two numbers, the first represents hours of lecture, the second, hours of laboratory.

*Credits earned in remedial courses (000 level) will not apply toward the credits required for graduation. However, they will count toward determining “full load” for students receiving financial aid.
