Course numbering:

Courses with a number such as 2-FL-N or 1-SC-N represent a subject and if the course counts toward the major and/or meets a foundation and distribution requirement. Example: CHEM 1-SC-N = Chemistry elective, 100-level, meets FDR-SC, non-major course. A second example: SPAN 2-FL-M = Spanish elective, 200-level, meets FDR-FL, may be used for the major.

Mathematics Note

  • Note #1: Students may opt to enroll in MATH 102 (3) as an advanced-standing student, instead of MATH 101 for the fall term. Upon completing MATH 102 with a grade of C or better in the fall term, credit for MATH 101 (3) also will be awarded.

Advanced Standing

For some math courses (currently MATH 332), qualified first-year students may take a University-administered examination no later than four weeks into fall term to qualify for college credit in lower-level courses. Students must be pursuing and must pass, with a C (2.0) or better the higher-level course noted in the registration recommendation. Students must contact the appropriate department head to indicate an interest in this option.
