- A ‘6’ is used for 6 credit-hour courses
- KINESIOLOGY activity courses have a value of 1.5 credit hours. The fourth value for these courses contains a letter, e.g. KINE 185A.
- An L at the end of the four numbers represents a lab.
A1 is the section and term.
The letter (A, B, C, etc.) represents the section.
