Undergraduate courses are numbered from 100-499. Courses numbered 100 through 199 are ordinarily elementary or introductory. Courses numbered 200 through 299 may assume prior study or competence in the subject, acquired in secondary school or in college. Courses numbered 300 through 498 assume either previous course work or special competence in the field. Courses numbered 499 are internships. Individual study courses offer learning opportunities in areas or subjects not covered by regular courses.
Courses numbered 500 through 599 are for graduate students. Courses numbered in the 800s and 900s are non-degree professional development courses at the pre- or post-baccalaureate level. These courses cannot be used toward the completion of degree programs at the University. Courses numbered below 100 do not carry credit that may be applied to a degree.
Prerequisite courses must be taken in the appropriate sequence to count toward graduation. A prerequisite for a course is the required preparation for that course. If course 101 is specified as a prerequisite for course 102, then course 101 must be successfully completed (passed) before the student takes course 102. Course prerequisites are listed in the course descriptions published in this Catalog, and are also available in the online Schedule of Courses. Students are responsible for checking their courses before registering.
As a general rule, no course may be taken for credit that is a prerequisite for, or introductory to, a course already completed successfully. In rare instances, and in the event of compelling reasons, a student may need to take a course out of sequence (e.g., take a course that is a higher-numbered course before or concurrently taking the lower-numbered, prerequisite course). Students seeking permission to take a course out of sequence MUST obtain the permission of the course instructor and the department chair. Students will need to complete and submit a Course Out of Sequence form available on the Office of the Registrar’s web page during registration.
A corequisite is a course to be taken at the same time as another specified course, or courses, as designated by the department. A co-requisite course may also be completed before taking the course or courses with which it is paired.
