Abbreviations and Codings

Each course is identified by a department code, term number, course number, and a section letter (if two or more sections of the course are offered in the same term). These identifiers are used to register for the course on the enrollment card. Some courses are listed as Term 0. Many of the Term 0 courses may be scheduled into any one of the nine terms if arrangements have been made in advance with the instructor; others are available during either the Fall or the Spring (this is noted in the title). Parallel courses have a two-digit prefix and are offered over two terms (eg. ART 45-233-1 is offered terms 4 and 5 and must be paired with a course that has a number 2 suffix to avoid scheduling conflicts; in this case, the student could pair it with ART 45-202-2). The amount of credit is shown for each course; if the course is available for less than a full credit, a different section is listed for the course that earns partial credit (eg. WST 0-390 earns one credit and WST 0-390-B earns one-half credit). Courses preceded by an asterisk (*) have no collegiate prerequisite and are especially recommended for first-year students. However, the following courses are asterisked even though they have prerequisites because many students satisfy the prerequisites in high school: MAT 141; FRE, GER, JPN, SPA 102 AND 103. Courses without asterisks have prerequisites (consult the Catalogue or the instructor) and are not open to first-year students until the prerequisite is met or the instructor has granted permission to register for the course. Courses numbered in the 500s or 700s are adjunct courses that are taken along with principle or concurrent courses (see deTERMinations and the Catalogue for a complete description and guidelines). This year students may register for Music Fine Arts Activity (FAA) courses during spring registration. Courses are listed on the department side of this document. To register for FAA courses, list them on the back side of your enrollment card. Although participation spans across terms 1-4 and 5-9, only terms 4 and 9 are listed here (to coincide with the terms that grades are posted for these courses) and registrants need only to write terms 4 and 9. A sample form is available in the Registrar's Office.
