Course Numbering System
Courses Numbered 000–099 = Noncredit courses.
Courses Numbered 100–299 = Introductory and foundational knowledge courses normally
taken in the undergraduate student’s initial years at the college.
Courses Numbered 300–399 = More advanced courses taken by undergraduate students.
These courses are not accepted for credit toward graduate degrees.
Courses Numbered 400–499 = Most advanced courses, typically taken by seniors, and
open to graduate students for credit toward graduate degrees. The number of credits
acceptable in a graduate program is limited by graduate program policies.
Courses Numbered 500–599 = Courses open to graduate students. Normally these
courses require a bachelor’s degree as a prerequisite. In certain circumstances, qualified
undergraduate students who have earned at least 90 credit hours may be admitted, with
documented consent of the instructor and the appropriate dean.
Courses Numbered 600–699 = Courses open to graduate and doctoral students only.
Courses Numbered 700–799 = Courses open to graduate and doctoral students only.
* Courses numbered 300 and above must have a prerequisite.
* In general, when the middle digit of a course number is 6, the course is a seminar or a
General Education Core course; 8, a workshop; 9, directed study.
* Courses ending with an E are only open to Early Enrollment Program high school students.
