The Jacksonville University catalog lists all academic courses alphabetically by discipline, then numerically within each discipline, with complete descriptions including credit hours, terms offered, contact hours per week, and required prerequisites. Example:
ACCT 202. Principles of Accounting II (3; F/S)
Three hours per week. Prerequisite: ACCT 201 and MATH 112 or MATH 140 with a "C" or better in the Math course. A “C”
or better must be earned in ACCT 201 and in ACCT 202 as a prerequisite for all upper-level accounting courses except
ACCT 310. In addition, a “C” (2.0) or better is required in order to use this course as part of the core requirement for any
business major. A continuation of ACCT 201. Topics covered include accounting for long-term liabilities, stockholders
equity, the cash flow statement, job order costing systems, cost behavior analysis, cost-volume-profit analysis,
budgeting, standard costs, differential analysis and variable costing. A spreadsheet project must be satisfactorily
completed to pass this course.
ACCT = Accounting discipline
202 = sophomore level
Principles of Accounting II = course title
3 = three hours credit
F/S = offered fall and spring terms
Courses numbered 100 – 299 are considered lower division courses (i.e., should be taken in freshman and sophomore years). Courses numbered 300- 499 are considered upper division courses, typically taken by juniors and seniors, or advanced sophomores who have the required prerequisites. Courses numbered 500 and above are graduate courses.
A remedial class does not earn college credit when successfully completed and is designated with an "N" at the end of its course number, i.e. ENGL 100N. Courses that earn college credit, but do not fulfill the core requirement in the area, have a statement in the course description, i.e. MATH 100.
Courses offered in a given semester are indicated, using the following codes:
- F = fall semester
- S = spring semester
- F/S = fall and spring semester
- EVEN or ODD = May be listed after F or S to indicate a specific fall or spring semester.
Courses listed with no semester code may be those courses usually, but not always, offered in fall and/or spring semesters, or may be those courses offered on an occasional or infrequent basis as dictated by the resources of the individual departments.
Courses offered in summer generally include those that will satisfy the University Core Curriculum requirements, specific undergraduate and graduate major or program cohort courses, various study abroad courses, and elective courses.
Courses shown in brackets refer to prior course codes that have been changed; e.g. BUS 301 is now DSIM 301.
