Course Numbering Scheme Course Numbering Scheme 4 character subject code 4 digit course number 1. First digit indicates level or professional program as listed below a. 1-Freshman undergrad (UG) b. 2-Sophomore UG c. 3-Junior UG d. 4-Senior UG e. 5- Master’s level/Physician Assistant/Doctorate of Audiology f. 6-Doctoral level g. 7-Pharmacy/Doctor of Nursing Practice h. 8-Medicine i. 9-“pseudo” courses-these will be used for transfer credit 2. Second digit indicate year in program that course traditionally taken if full time 3. Last 2 digits will be assigned with the guidance that courses are numbered with sequencing or pre-requisite courses having the lowest number. Special topics and independent study courses will also have specific course numbers associated with them that we will define later. An example of a course using this new scheme is below: 1st year Biochemistry course for MS students offered in the first semester: BIOC5101 where BIOC indicates the department/program, 5 indicates Master’s level, 1 indicates 1st year, and 01 indicates it is a course needed to be taken early in the curriculum.
