However, you can infer from the course title, instructor, and description that they are the same course. You may include one or the other on your contract but not both.
Schedule Type: Can be used to separate general topics/seminar courses from laboratory and thesis-related courses.
Part of Term: Can be used to filter courses based on when the course takes place within the semester. You may also filter by full term – mod credit equivalent courses that run the full length of the semester but only carry 0.5 unit. You can also see the set of dates during which a course takes place by looking at the “Date Range” listed at the bottom of the course listing (see highlights in the above images.)
Attribute Type: Think of an attribute as an identification tag on a course. Can be used to search for classes that fulfill LAC requirements or are designated as being part of an interdisciplinary program. For more information see Attribute Types.
Start Time, End Time, and Days: Select days of the week and/or start and end times to find classes that fit your schedule needs. Please see the Uniform Class Schedule for specific class meeting time blocks.
(Note: Not all classes conform to a time block in the Uniform Class Schedule.)
After you have selected your search criteria, click the “Class Search” button at the bottom of the page.
To access and view the course description and other details about each course section, click the “View Catalog Entry” at the end of each course listed.
Each entry will include information about the meeting times, course attributes, instructor, and classroom assignment (see note).
Beginning with fall 2017, course listings also include new course subject codes and numbers that provide more information about the courses. A subject code is a letter combination that corresponds to an academic discipline. For example, ANTH stands for Anthropology. The numbers reveal the course level:
Examples are highlighted below.
Please note that when asked to include the Course Request Numbers on your contract you will still provide the 5-digit number to the left of the course subject code. For example, the Neurobiology course listed above has a course request number (CRN) of 80008.
