Course Information

The University operates on the semester plan. The credit value of all courses is stated in terms of semester hours. Ordinarily, a semester hour is assigned for a 50- minute class meeting per week for the semester; therefore, a course valued at three semester hours generally meets three periods weekly. In laboratory courses, at least two 50-minute periods per week are ordinarily required for each semester hour of credit.

Course Availability: Some courses listed in the Undergraduate Catalog may not be available each year. Students should consult the major department or school or the University website for class availability. Questions concerning scheduling of courses should be referred to the department chairperson or college Dean.

Course prerequisites in effect at the time of publication are printed in this catalog. However, prerequisites may change over time and do not depend on catalog year.
