Course numbering is nominally as follows
|500-599||Entry-level graduate courses. Upper level undergraduates, in good standing, can enroll in 500 level courses, except for courses with MGT and TM prefixes, without special permission. MGT and TM prefixed courses require special permission.|
|600-799||Core level graduate courses. Upper level undergraduates, in good standing, can enroll in 600 level courses only with the permission of the instructor or advisor.|
|800-899||Special Problems graduate courses|
|900-999||Research Level graduate courses|
Prior to September 1985, two digit course numbers were used to denote undergraduate level courses and three digit numbers were used to denote graduate level courses.
Section coding, generically, is as follows
|Single letter||On-campus or open enrollment off-campus section|
|CA||Course by Application|
|CE||Course by Examination (Undergraduate Only)|
|WS, W1, W2, W3, W4, W5 or WP||Web Campus (On-line course)|
|Double letter/digit starting with E||Evening undergraduate section|
|Double letter starting with L||On-campus undergraduate lab section|
|Double letter starting with R||On-campus undergraduate recitation section|
|Other two letter sections||Restricted enrollment on-campus or off-campus section|
|P||Pass (P/F graded courses only)|
|IP||In Progress (800 & 900 level courses only)|
|WN||Withdrawn – Never Attended|
|WU||Withdrawn - Unofficially|
|NG||No Grade (Used by the Registrar when a grade is expected but not available)|
|S||Satisfactory (S/U graded courses only)|
|U||Unsatisfactory (S/U graded courses only)|
|EXC||Excused (PE Courses only)|
The grades of “C-”, “D+” and “D” are applicable to undergraduate courses only. Instructors cannot assign a final course grade of “C-“, “D+” or “D” in graduate courses.
When a student retakes a course, the new grade replaces the old grade for purposes of calculating the GPA. However, the earlier attempt of the course remains on the transcript with the grade earned as well as a note indicating that the course was repeated.
Prior to 2009 Spring, +/- grading was not applicable to Graduate courses. Also, the grades of "D+" and "D" are not applicable to Graduate courses. Credit basis is Semester-Hours.
Pursuant to the Family Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, transcript information shall not be released to a third party without the written authorization of the student.
