The information in this section relates to courses available to SAS students, both within and outside of Rutgers University.

Explanation of Three-Part Course Numbers

A Rutgers course number is divided into three parts. The first two digits are the administrative code (standing for a faculty or a school), the next three digits are the subject code, and the final three digits are the course code.

The following administrative codes are most often used for SAS students, and are positioned as the first two digits in all course numbers.

Subject Codes

A subject code comprises the third through fifth digits in all course numbers and indicates the subject matter of the course.

The subject code T01 signifies a transfer course equivalent for an SAS general elective, liberal arts distribution requirement, or course filling an SAS Core learning goal.

The course code comprises the sixth, seventh, and eighth digits in all course numbers. Course codes from 100 to 299 indicate introductory and intermediate undergraduate courses. Codes from 300 to 499 indicate advanced undergraduate courses. (Courses coded from 500 to 799 are graduate courses.)
