Course Credits are Expressed in Semester Hours of Credit

Courses are generally numbered to correspond to the class level for which they are intended. Courses numbered below 100 are intended for freshmen. They do not count toward graduation, although they are included in the course load for the semester. 100-level courses are intended for freshmen, 200-level courses are intended for sophomores, 300-level courses are intended for juniors, and 400-level courses are intended for seniors. The 100- and 200-level courses are considered lower division, while the 300- and 400-level courses are considered upper division. Lower-level transfer elective credit is numbered 195, and upper-level transfer elective credit is numbered 395. Graduate courses are numbered 500 to 699.
