2016-2017 Undergraduate Catalog > University Requirements > Course Numbers
Course descriptions are arranged by departments or by program. The course numbers are used to indicate the year in which courses are usually taken by students and/or the minimum number of prerequisite course(s) the student ought to have completed to gain admission in to the course. The student should read the catalog description of each course for more detailed information regarding the prerequisite(s) for that course.
In cases where students have not completed the prerequisites for a particular course, they may request a waiver of the prerequisites from the course instructor.
Note: Students who transfer courses to the university that do not have an exact ESU course equivalent will have these transfer courses recorded on their permanent record (transcript) to either satisfy a general education requirement or a department elective. No course descriptions will appear in this catalog for each of these courses. However, these cases will meet a degree requirement in the following ways:
