Upper-Division Coursework Policy PDFDownload to print

Most undergraduate specialization is pursued through upper-division coursework. Upper-division courses are numbered 30000-49999. These courses require both greater familiarity with the subject matter and greater intellectual sophistication. Students are required to have completed the appropriate prerequisites in specified lower-division courses before entering upper-division courses. All degree programs in the College of Arts and Sciences require the successful completion of at least 42 upper-division hours of coursework. Transfer coursework is considered upper-division only if the coursework was taken as upper-division at the transfer institution. Community college coursework is classified as lower-division.
