Subject Abbreviations

UW-Stout uses a subject/number course identification system:

 

  • The alpha-abbreviation identifies the subject, or curricular, area. This is
    based on the taxonomy of instructional programs in higher education 
    designating the primary disciplinary area in which the course is being 
    offered within a department. 
  • The second three numerals refer in part to the level of the courses.
    Courses at the 100 to 400 level may be taken for undergraduate
    credit only; 500 to 600 level are graduate credit only and have a
    "paired" undergraduate course identification at the 300 to 400 level;
    700-800 level courses are graduate level only. An alpha character,
    assigned by the Provost's Office,  may be used in the fourth position
    to differentiate between specific courses.
