Courses are numbered as follows: 100’s – freshman-level; 200’s – sophomore-level; 300’s – junior-level; 400’s – senior-level. Students should not enroll in courses in the upper division (numbered 300 and above) without having taken the prerequisite lower-division courses. Students wishing to take courses numbered higher than their current classification should consult the chairperson of the department concerned.

Courses are also designated as sequential-double numbered year courses. (See course listings section.) As far as possible, enrollment in these courses should maintain the sequence. Students who have failed a course in such a sequence will not be permitted to enroll in the more advanced course without the express permission of the instructor and the Provost. Students who have received an Incomplete grade in a course may, with the permission of the instructor, enroll in the more advanced course.
