Explanation of Course

Not all of the courses listed in this catalog are offered every year. A class schedule, published before the registration period begins for each term or semester, indicates the courses to be available in that term or semester and the hours at which they will meet. The University reserves the right, however, to cancel any scheduled course, as well as to withdraw any program from the list of graduate offerings, if the best interests of the institution require such action.

Indication of Credit. The number of semester hours of credit for each course is shown immediately following its title, usually in this form: (3:2:3). The first digit in parenthesis indicates the credit in semester hours for the course; the second, the number of lecture hours per week; and the third, the number of laboratory hours per week. If the third digit is zero, the course requires no laboratory work. A single number in parenthesis indicates the credit in semester hours. The letter V precedes the numbers in variable credit courses (as V1-12). Such courses are ordinarily research courses and permit enrollment for any number of hours up to the limit indicated by the second number in the parenthesis.

Designation of Semester Courses Offered. To assist students in planning their sequence of courses, some course descriptions indicate when they are normally taught. The designations used are F­fall, S­spring, SSI­first summer term, SSII­second summer term.

Prerequisites for Courses. Certain general prerequisites apply to all courses listed in this catalog. For example, all courses in this bulletin are numbered in the 5000 series or above and are for graduate students. Graduate standing is a prerequisite for enrollment in such courses (except for seniors within 12 hours of graduation, whose enrollment may be authorized by the Graduate Dean).

Graduate Credit. Although graduate students occasionally enroll in undergraduate courses to fill out deficiencies in their preparation for graduate work, course work credited toward a graduate degree must, except in rare instances, be of graduate level (5000 or above).
