The first digit of the course indicates the general level. Those in the 1000 series are introductory degree level. Courses at the 2000, 3000, 4000 series are typically available to students in the second, third, and fourth year. Courses numbered at the 5000 level or above are graduate level. Courses listed at the 0100 or 0200 series are technology level courses. Courses below the 0100 level are generally non credit courses.

Some courses are listed as exclusionary to one another. This means that students may not obtain credit for both courses as designated.
