Key to Course Numbering System

100-299 Lower division courses not open to graduate students for credit.

300-699 Upper division courses that may, if so designated, carry graduate credit. Courses with level "U" are offered for undergraduate credit only; courses with level "U/G" may be offered for undergraduate and/or graduate credit. Insofar as a course approved for graduate credit may not be offered for graduate credit in a given semester, the current schedule of classses should be consulted. Junior standing is normally a minimum prerequisite for 300-699 courses that carry graduate credit.
