Faculty Certification Parameters


It is understood that various prefixes may be utilized to designate equivalent course content. Determining equivalency will be based on course content as opposed to relying on course prefixes.

Courses ending in L may be coordinated by Instructional and/or Lab Assistants who have no authority over final grades. Therefore, no in-field certification is necessary.

  • UT = Undergraduate Transferable
  • UN = Undergraduate Nontransferabl
