Crosslisted courses have an antirequisite in the enrollment requirements to prevent students from getting credit in more than one course that has the same or similar content. Antirequisites are coded inside an Enrollment Requirement Group in PeopleSoft and attached at the course level with the format, "Credit is allowed for only THIS COURSE or ANOTHER COURSE".
A student may choose to audit a course, in which case the student attends regularly scheduled class sessions, but no credit is earned. The student should obtain the instructor's approval before registering and paying the fees for the course. Selected courses may not be audited.
An undergraduate certificate is a programmatic or linked series of courses from a single field or one that crosses disciplinary boundaries. It may be freestanding or affiliated with a degree program. The certificate provides a structured and focused set of courses that can be used to enhance a student's baccalaureate experience or professional development. See Minors and Undergraduate Certificates.
A course that must be taken while taking another course at the same time is a corequisite. An example might be a lab required to be taken with a lecture course. Corequisites are coded inside an Enrollment Requirement Group in PeopleSoft and attached at the course level. See also "Prerequisite" in this section.
A course offering (sometimes referred to as a campus offering) is a single course offered on one or more campuses by one or more academic units. See Course Offering for more information.
Crosslisted courses are offered under more than one subject and may be offered by more than one academic unit. Some units may require students to enroll in a course under a certain subject to properly receive credit.
See Crosslisted Courses for more information.
A student who has earned 24 or fewer credit hours is a freshman. See Class Standing.
All students enrolled in a baccalaureate degree program must satisfy a university requirement of a minimum of 35 credit hours of approved coursework. General Studies core and awareness areas are approved in a separate process, first by each applicable subcommittee, and then by the General Studies Council. Once approved, the General Studies designations are attached to the courses in the PeopleSoft course catalog. See University Undergraduate General Studies Requirement.
Courses numbered from 500 to 799 are designed for graduate students. See Graduate-Level Courses.
A student who has earned from 56 to 86 credit hours is a junior. See Class Standing.
Courses numbered from 100 to 299 are designed primarily for freshmen and sophomores. See Lower-division courses.
A major is a formalized group of courses contained within the program of study. See Undergraduate Degree Programs (Baccalaureate) and Graduate Programs.
A minor is an approved, coherent concentration of academic study in a single discipline, involving substantially fewer hours of credit than a corresponding major. See Minors and Undergraduate Certificates.
An omnibus course is offered on an experimental or tutorial basis when the course content is new or periodically changes. Omnibus courses are often offered with special topics, which are requested by proposing changes to an existing omnibus course in Kuali Curriculum Management. Topics are housed under omnibus courses in the catalog and cannot have different prerequisites than the course itself. See Omnibus Courses.
New permanent courses must either be required for a degree program, minor, or certificate, or have been offered at least twice as an omnibus topic, with a minimum of 10 enrolled students each time, and at least one of the offerings within the last three years.
A plan code is a unique set of characters used in PeopleSoft to identify an approved major, minor, certificate, or concentration. Plan codes can be found in the detail pages in Degree Search.
To query plan codes, use the search pages for Undergraduate Degree Search or Graduate Degree & Certificate Search. Once you refine your search, click on the detail page for each program to find the plan code in the right sidebar.
See "Subject Code".
A requirement to be met before registering for a course, such as completing another particular course, is a prerequisite. Prerequisites are coded inside an Enrollment Requirement Group in PeopleSoft and attached at the course level. See also "Corequisite" in this section.
Every Kuali Curriculum Management user is assigned at least one role. Roles determine the level of permission to complete certain actions, which might include the ability to begin new proposals or approve forms forward in the workflow.
If a user is assigned multiple roles with different permissions, the highest level of permission will be respected for that user. See the Kuali Manual for more information on each role.
A student who has earned 87 or more credit hours is a senior. See Class Standing.
A student who has earned from 25 to 55 credit hours is a sophomore. See Class Standing.
The most common grading option attached to courses. Students may receive an A-E grade in the course, a "Y" grade (pass/fail), or audit the course.
The Shared Unique Number (SUN) system is a state-wide system that identifies some of the transferable lower-division courses commonly offered at the three Arizona public universities and at least two Arizona community colleges, one of which is urban. The system ensures that a SUN course at a participating institution will be accepted as a direct equivalent to the comparable SUN course at the other participating institution.
If a university is making changes to an existing SUN course, the universities have agreed to notify the other two universities and the statewide Academic Program Articulation Steering Committee (APASC) of the change in advance of making the change to determine if the changes are substantive and would put the course at risk of losing its SUN designation. To determine if a course is currently designated a SUN course, refer to the SUN Matrix Report. More information about the Shared Unique Number System can be found on at aztransfer.com/sun.
Questions regarding ASU’s participation in this system can be sent to email@example.com or Lisa McIntyre.
A subject code (formerly known as "prefix") is a three-letter designation assigned to a group of courses. A comprehensive list can be found by clicking on the "Advanced search" link from the class search/course catalog page, then "Browse by Subject".
A topic ID is a unique number used in PeopleSoft to identify a specific topic taught under an omnibus course. Please consult with your college classroom scheduler to obtain this number, as it is essential for repeat rules to be enforced.
Courses numbered from 300 to 499 are designed primarily for juniors and seniors. Upper-division courses should have at least a generic prerequisite (e.g., "56 minimum hours" or "junior standing" for a 300-level course). See Upper-Division Courses.
A class with all components delivered via the Internet to students enrolled in campus-based programs. Faculty have regular, on-campus office hours posted on the syllabus.
A class with all components delivered via the Internet to students enrolled in ASU Online. No face-to-face components are allowed. Faculty have regular, online office hours posted on the syllabus.
A class that meets on a regular weekly schedule in a physical classroom with students enrolled in campus-based programs. Such a course may include Internet-delivered components, which do not significantly alter the regular in-class schedule. Faculty have regular, on-campus office hours posted on the syllabus.
A class taught using both face-to-face and Internet-delivered components, where the Internet-delivered components result in a reduction in regularly scheduled face-to-face meeting times. A hybrid class balances the components, with between 33% and 66% of the course activities occurring in a face-to-face context; or with all components delivered via the Internet, except for mandatory face-to-face assessments. Faculty have regular, on-campus office hours posted on the syllabus.
