2015-16 Undergraduate Catalog [ARCHIVED CATALOG]

Classification of Courses

Numbering System

The college course-numbering system is as follows:
100–200 freshman- and sophomore-level courses
300–400 junior- and senior-level courses

Courses offered at the 100 level and 200 level are deemed to be introductory in nature, requiring little or no prerequisite disciplinary preparation in terms of skill or knowledge for student entry into and subsequent success in the course. Courses at the 300 level and 400 level are deemed to be more advanced, frequently requiring prerequisite disciplinary or skill preparation for student entry into and subsequent success in the course. Responsibility for recommending appropriate course levels lies with the department offering the course; if initially endorsed by the appropriate school, the recommendations are forwarded through the schools to the Academic Council for approval for inclusion in the College Catalog
