    8.- Course Numbering System

    Each course offered by the University of Texas at El Paso is identified by a four-digit course number. The first number indicates the semester hour value of the course. The second number indicates the level: 0 = precollege or remedial, 1 = freshman, 2 = sophomore, 3 = junior, 4 = senior, 5 = graduate, and 6 = doctoral. The last two numbers identify the course within its particular department.

    Lower Division Courses are designated by a 1 or 2 as the second digit of the course number (freshman and sophomore level).

    Upper Division/Advanced Courses are designated by a 3 or 4 as the second digit of the course number. Students should refer to the departmental and college requirements for any specific conditions imposed on registration in advanced courses.

    Graduate Courses are designed by a 5 or 6 as the second digit of the course number. These courses are open to graduate students or seniors who have been approved to reserve them for graduate credit. They may be restricted to specific majors.
