Important note regarding when courses are offered

Term notations of Pre-term, Fall, Interterm, Spring, Post-term, or Summer mean that the course is offered during that term every year. When a term notation is followed by odd or even, then the course is offered during that term only in odd or even years, respectively.

Courses that do not have a term notation are not offered on a set rotation.

The number of semester credit hours which a course carries is listed in parentheses following the course title.
