Suffixes

Starting in Fall 2005, the only use of suffixes for undergraduate courses is to identify a course or section of a course that meets one or more of the General Education Communication and Reasoning requirements: Writing Intensive, Oral Discourse, and Information Literacy. Beginning Fall 2012 – The suffix "E" = Community Engagement Course.

Z = Writing Intensive

Y = Oral Discourse

X = Information Literacy

W = Writing Intensive AND Oral Discourse

V = Writing Intensive AND Information Literacy

U = Information Literacy AND Oral Discourse

T = Writing Intensive AND Information Literacy AND Oral Discourse

To determine whether a specific course meets any additional General Education requirements, use the Gen Ed Lookup and follow the instructions at 2. The most recent class schedule search allows you to search on the general education status of courses offered in a specific term.
