Course Credit Value

Following the course designator are two numbers in parentheses separated by a hyphen, which indicate the hours of instruction per week in the classroom and in the laboratory, respectively. When calculating quarter-hours for the credit value of the course, laboratory hours are assigned half the value shown. Thus a (3-2) course, having three hours lecture and two hours of laboratory, will be assigned a credit value of four-quarter-hours.

Courses are assigned numbers in accordance with their level of academic credit:

0001-0999 No credit
1000-1999 Lower division college credit
(Freshman - Sophomore Level)
2000-2999 Upper division college credit
(Junior - Senior level)
3000-3999 Graduate credit
4000-4999 Graduate credit
5000-5999 Doctoral (dissertation-related)
