Course Numbering System

Courses are described by a subject prefix (e.g., ACC for Accounting) followed by a three-digit number.  This constitutes the official designation of the course for the purposes of registration and official records.  The official course title also appears following the course number, along with a brief description of the course.  The number of semester hours of credit for the course and information about pre- or corequisites is also provided.  The following numbering system determines the level of the course and availability to students.
