Odd-numbered courses are usually offered in the Fall semester. Even-numbered courses are usually offered in the Spring semester. Courses listed as bi-annual E are normally offered during even-numbered academic years (e.g. 1996-1997). Courses listed as bi-annual O are normally offered during odd-numbered academic years (e.g. 1995-1996). A slash (/) between numbers indicates a course which may be entered in the second semester. A dash (-) between numbers indicates a course whose first term is a prerequisite for the second term. Course credits are for each semester in two-semester courses. Departments may offer experimental courses under the listing 501, 502, etc., prior to faculty review, and these numbers may be repeated by the student. Students may register for Independent Study (481-482) only with approval of the Department and Dean.
Students should be advised that final course offerings for each semester depend on sufficient course registration. Nevertheless, students may be assured that sufficient courses will be offered to enable students to complete associate degree programs in two academic years of full-time study, or their equivalent in part-time study, and to complete baccalaureate degree programs in four academic years of study, or their equivalent in part-time study.
