At the end of the course description, a semester notation informs the reader of the semester in which the course is usually taught. For example, fall (f) means that the course is usually only taught in the fall semester; fall, summer (f,sum) means the course is taught fall and summer only; a fall, spring, summer designation (f,s,sum) means that the course is usually available every semester. A course offered only in alternate fall or spring semesters would be designated with af or as. A course offered only alternate years would be designated with ay. If the course is offered on an irregular basis at the discretion of the department or school, irregular (ir) follows the description. Although circumstances may cause a unit to deviate occasionally from these notations, students should use this information to plan their programs of study.
First number: semester credit hours for the course
Second number: hours of lecture/seminar per week for the course
Third number: hours of laboratory/studio per week for the course
