Course Numbering System
Courses are listed alphabetically by course symbol. Each department entry contains a description of the courses.
System of Course Numbers
All course numbers consist of four digits, of which the first (left) digit indicates the level of preparation required and the fourth (right) digit indicates the number of semester hours. The two middle digits are reserved for the departments to distinguish one course from another. A fourth digit of zero (0) means that credit is variable to be fixed in consultation with the professor: example, ACC 4000, Directed Individual Study.
