The System of Course Numbering
Four figures appear for each course listed in the calendar. The first figure indicates the year of attendance in which the course is normally taken. '0' indicates a course which may not be offered for credit towards a degree program. '1', '2', '3' and '4' indicate the year of attendance in which the course is normally taken. '4' also indicates a course taken in a post-baccalaureate professional program. '5', '6' and '7' indicate courses taken at the graduate level. '8' indicates courses offered at the post-baccalaureate level for purposes of professional improvement. '9' indicates courses taken elsewhere and accepted for transfer credit but without an Acadia equivalent.
The second and third figures provide a serial listing, from 00 to 99, of the various courses given by a department or school in each year of attendance.
In the fourth place, the digit '1' indicates a one credit hour course, the digit '3' indicates a three credit hour (3h) course, '6' indicates a six credit hour (6h) course, and '0' a non-credit course. An alpha character indicates a non-standard credit value. Laboratory hours are additional.
On the timetable, and in the fifth place, letters of the alphabet indicate different sections of the same course, 'X' indicating an unsectioned course. In the sixth place, digits indicate the session in which a given course is offered: '0' fall and winter semesters, '1' fall semester only, '2' winter semester only, '3' intersession-first six weeks, '4' intersession-second six weeks, and '5' intersession.
