Course Numbering System
Each course is represented by four capital letters followed by a four-digit numeral (e.g., FINC 3311).
The letters form an abbreviation for the instructional area while the numeral is interpreted as follows:
First Digit: The first digit indicates academic level and provides information regarding restrictions as to undergraduate and/or graduate student enrollment:
1000 and 2000 series -- undergraduate lower division
3000 and 4000 series -- undergraduate upper division (normally for undergraduate students but with
advisor approval for graduate students).
6000 series -- graduate courses (for graduate students only except for undergraduates with
an approved mixed load petition).
Second Digit : The second digit indicates the amount of credit awarded. For example, a course numbered 4331, carries three semester hours of credit.
Third and Fourth Digits: The third and fourth digits are used to distinguish between courses within an instructional area.
