Courses to be identified by new 5-digit numbering system

by William G. Gilroy

Beginning this week, University of Notre Dame students logging on toinsideNDto search for summer and fall course offerings will discover a new course numbering system.

All Notre Dame courses now will be identified by a five-digit numbering system. The first digit of the new course numbers indicates the course level, and the second digit indicates the type of course: lab, tutorial, seminar or some other kind of course. A letter suffix previously was used to indicate the type of course. The last three digits are created by each academic department. Some departments will use the last three digits in a way that specifically fits their curricula, while others have added the last three digits from the old course numbers as part of the new five-digit numbering system.

The Office of the Registrar has developed an online tool to enable a person who knows the old course number to find the matching new number. The tool, along with additional information, can be found at the Registrar Resource Central page at http://registrar.nd.edu/rrc.shtml on the Office of the Registrars Web site: http//registrar.nd.edu.
