2017-2018 Graduate Catalog

Course Information


Course Numbering System
Consult the section of the Graduate Catalog entitled “Course Definitions” for a comprehensive summary of the course numbering system. Consult the section of the Graduate Catalog entitled “Graduate Study Options for EIU Seniors” for courses open to undergraduates. Consult the section of the Graduate Catalog entitled “Graduate Credit and Grading Policies” for a definition of credits.

Course Numbers
Numbers in parenthesis following the course title indicate the number of class hours per week, laboratory or studio hours per week, and credit hours. For example (3-2-4) indicates three hours of classroom work each week, 2 laboratory hours per week, and four semester hours of credit. Students enrolled in courses whose meeting times are noted as “arranged” (Arr.) should contact the instructor by the beginning of the semester to conclude course arrangements.

Prerequisites
Prerequisites are predicated upon the assumption that students require certain knowledge and/or skills gained in one or more previous courses. Prerequisites for courses are printed immediately following the course description.

A student may not enroll in a course serving as a prerequisite for another course he or she has already completed. A student may not enroll in a lower level course which substantially duplicates a higher level course already successfully completed. Students who violate these prescriptions may not receive credit for the course toward graduation.

Graduate Courses
(Courses numbered 5000-5499 inclusive may be taken by a senior whose grade point average is 2.75 or higher, with permission of the instructor and the Dean of the Graduate School. Courses numbered 5500 and above are open only to students who have been admitted to the Graduate School.)
