Course Numbering

The numbering system for courses of study at this institution is as follows:

10000-19999   Freshman level
20000-29999   Sophomore level
30000-39999   Junior level
40000-49999   Senior level
50000-59999   Graduate level
60000-69999   Graduate level
70000-79999   Doctoral level
80000-89999   Doctoral level

Undergraduate courses (10000-49999) are generally open to students of a class rank equivalent to the levels indicated. Students participating in the Honors, Early Admissions and Advanced Placement programs, as well as those who otherwise present evidence of qualifications beyond their class rank, may enroll in the appropriate undergraduate courses with the approval of their advisors and the instructors or departments offering the courses.

Most courses are offered in a regular sequence to meet students’ programmatic needs; however, the availability of any specific course in a given semester is subject to sufficient student demand and available resources. Some courses require that a fee be paid in addition to instructional and general fees. These special fees, listed with the Catalog copy for each appropriate course, are subject to change at any time, upon approval by the Board of Trustees.

Undergraduate students may enroll in graduate courses only with prior written approval of their academic deans and the dean of the appropriate graduate school.

Many of the 50000-level courses are also offered at the 40000 level for undergraduates. Students who have already completed 40000-level courses may not repeat the courses at the 50000-level for credit toward a graduate degree. No more than one-half of a graduate student’s coursework may be taken in 50000-level courses.

Students who do not meet the course prerequisite(s) may appeal to the department for approval to register.
