Courses are listed numerically by subject area.
The Course Numbering System Key designates courses by six digits. The first three numbers refer to an internal university numbering system that designates the department/subject area and subdiscipline within that area. The second set of three numbers refers to the specific course within the subject area. For example, in the designation 150-143, the 150 refers to the subject area, Music, and 143 refers to the specific course, Survey of American Jazz.
In any reference to a specific course, the full set of six numbers should always be used.
Course numbers 000-099 are courses that carry no credit towards the degree requirements; courses numbered 100-299 are lower division courses. Courses numbered 300-499 are upper division courses which may be dual listed as 500-699 for graduate credit. It is recommended that entering freshmen not enroll in any of these courses without specific department approval. Courses at the 700 level are open only to graduate students. A course number may occasionally have a letter suffix to designate that it is open only to students with a specific educational background preparation.
The letter "G" appearing after the course title identifies the course as one that can be used in satisfying the University General Education requirement. The second letter following the "G" identifies the category within General Education in which the course applies. Proficiency and diversity courses are identified with the appropriate symbol after the course title.
These courses are available on a selected basis through most of the academic departments. The course descriptions are common to all departments. However, the prerequisites and the number of credits permitted in certain programs may differ. Note the limitation of credits for degree/programs identified in the Bulletin.

Information about auxiliary aids and academic course adjustments for qualified disabled individuals are available through the department chairperson.
SUBJECT AREA NUMBERING SYSTEM
The first three numbers of the course designate both the department involved and any subdiscipline subject area within the department. Because students will need to refer to courses by subject area, the numbering system is listed below, first alphabetically by subject area, and then numerically.
The 100 series represent work in the College of Arts and Communication; the 200 series the College of Business and Economics; the 400-500 series the College of Education; the 600-800 series the College of Letters and Sciences; the 900 series interdisciplinary courses.
