** Please note that once the course schedule has been returned to the School with rooms department, we will likely not be able to move classrooms. Specific course needs for space should be submitted to the course scheduler prior to the Data Entry Deadline for that semester (see above).

Course Numbering

Lower-Division Courses – Lower-division courses, numbered from 100 to 299, are designed primarily for freshmen and sophomores

Upper-Division Courses – Upper-division courses, numbered from 300 to 499, are designed primarily for juniors and seniors. Prerequisites and
other restrictions should be noted before registration.
