Course Types and Topics use filters to look for FDRs, interdisciplinary courses, and other codes

Filters are available in Student Planning to help you narrow down searches for courses in the 'Course Catalog'.

Note: If you select more than one filter, all courses that meet either level, type, or topic, will show. So, if you want something specific, select just one filter at a time.

TERMS: To narrow down to courses that have sections for a given term, filter on the specific term.
