Class Schedule Information/Abbreviations

The online Class Schedule lists all courses available. It includes undergraduate, graduate, and extension (off-campus) courses. Classes may be added, cancelled, or changed in this listing. The university reserves the right to limit class enrollment and cancel classes because of insufficient enrollment, budget limitations, lack of an appropriate instructor, or other unforeseen circumstances. Students are responsible for reviewing all information to ensure correct and valid registration.

Each course is designated by a three or four digit number identifying the individual course, a one, two, or three digit number indicating the specific section of that course, and a five digit course reference number (CRN). The three or four digit number that identifies the course indicates the level of complexity.

It is the responsibility of each student to enter the proper course reference number when registering. The course reference number is the key identifier for all registration activities. If you enter the wrong course reference number, your registration for that course may return a "Registration Add Error" message or you may be registered for the wrong course.
