This number is the identifier used by the Registration system. It changes each semester.
This consists of the department/discipline abbreviation, a three digit number, an optional one letter suffix, and the section number.
The suffixes "A", "B", "C" are to be used to distinguish different sections of a single classwhen the approach, content or credit hours differ. The suffix "D" indicates a drill or demonstration class; "L" indicates a lab class; "R" is for research classes; "S" is for studio classes; "T" is for tutorial classes. All classes must have a section number. "01" should be used for the first (or only) section of a class. "02", "03", etc., should be used for subsequent sections.
Use the complete title as it appears in the current "Bulletin of Information." If it is longer than thirty characters, please abbreviate it as you would like it to appear.
Class Hours (CR)

"C"for classes without a departmental final exam "D"for upperclass classes having departmental final exams (Deans' approval required) "N"for classes with no final examination The default code is "C". If no final exam will be given (primarily graduate courses) please be sure the class is coded "N". Otherwise we will assume that it will require a classroom for the final exam.
