Course attributes are system codes used to categorize sections of courses for two purposes:
- the fulfillment of academic requirements in the University of Notre Dame’s degree audit software known as G.P.S. (the Graduation Progress System), and
- the administrative sorting of courses for purposes such as final exam scheduling and bulletin publishing.
The assignment of course attributes to sections is managed by the Office of the Registrar in coordination with the academic programs at the University. Many course attributes can be used as search criteria in the online Class Search.
