The three digits after the hyphen designate the specific course. The first of these digits represents the year in school (1 through 4) during which a student normally takes this course. Ensembles may be repeated for credit. The third digit is odd or even depending on whether the course is normally offered during the first or second semester, respectively.

Level-5 courses

Courses at level 5 are graduate courses for which qualified seniors may enroll under certain circumstances. Seniors may take level-5 courses for either graduate or undergraduate credit provided they: (1) have completed 90 or more hours in an undergraduate degree program; (2) have a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or higher; and (3) secure the approval of the instructor, undergraduate adviser, graduate chair, dean of the school, and dean of graduate studies. Such courses taken for graduate credit cannot be applied toward an undergraduate degree; those taken for undergraduate credit cannot be applied toward a master's degree.
