Course Numbering

Course numbers at Trinity University consist of four digits. The first digit indicates the level of the course: 1 or 2 designates lower division, 3 or 4 designates upper division, 5 or 6 designates graduate level. The second digit indicates the value of the course in semester hours (credit hours). The third and fourth digits identify specific courses within the subject area.

Thus, a course numbered 1320 would be defined as follows:

1
(lower division)
3
(3 credit hours)
20
(specific course)

 

Faculty advisers or personnel in the Registrar’s Office can assist with explanation of course number meanings.
