Understand Suggested Classes Webpage
The classes suggested for your first semester will be listed. These classes are based on your intended major and your English and Math ACT scores.
Each class has a corresponding code. These codes are determined by three factors:
- A four-letter code that categorizes the class according to which subject it belongs. (For example, a class labelled "BIBL" belongs to the subject of Bible.)
- A four-digit code organizes classes within each department. The first number indicates the level of the class ("1" marks a freshman level class, while "4" marks a senior level class), and the last (fourth) number indicates the number of credit hours one may earn from this class.
- A two-digit code will appear at the end to indicate the class section only when there are multiple sections available for one course.
(If you are having trouble understanding what the four-letter code for each class means, click here or see the last image on this page for a list of descriptions)

Select Your Class Sections
All of the available sections for the classes you selected will appear. This can be very overwhelming. Here are some suggestions for how to work through the lists:
- For classes with multiple sections try to narrow the search - by a professor that has been recommended, a time that you would prefer, or days that you would prefer
- Set up a schedule for your week and start plugging in classes to see which sections would work best with your other classes.
Narrow Your Search
- Click Narrow my search
- It will appear that you have been taken back to the course schedule search page. This is where you will narrow your results by time, instructor, etc.
