There have been a number of changes to course codes in the 2014-15 Academic Calendar. This does not mean there are any academic program, or course changes, but it means that you will find them in a different section of the calendar that you did in previous years. You can find a table with the new course codes and cross listings here.


Any reference to courses in the Academic Calendar is a statement about courses that are regularly offered as part of the degree programs of the university. A listing in those publications does not guarantee that a particular course will be offered in a particular year or a particular semester. Students are advised to consult specific timetables for information on the class offerings for that semester.
