Course Numbering and Credit Hour Information
Courses are numbered so as to indicate the degree of advancement. In general, courses numbered lowest are those which should be completed first. Zero-level courses (i.e., MATH 0123) are remedial and do not count as college credit hours in meeting academic/degree requirements. Courses with numbers beginning in the 1000 and 2000 series are lower-division and considered designed for freshman and sophomore students. Courses with numbers in the 3000 and 4000 series are upper-division level to be taken by junior and senior students. Courses numbered in the 5000 series are for graduate students only. Students should also be aware that the last digit of the course number indicates the amount of semester-credit-hours awarded for the course completion. For example, ENG 1113 is a three-hour course while EDUC 4332 is a two-hour course.
