Course Prefix Guide by Department Code


FIND THE THREE-LETTER PREFIX FOR THE CLASS YOU WANT.

Classes are listed in the order of their three-letter course prefix (or subject code). Three-letter prefixes are determined by the state education authority and apply to all state institutions of higher education.

PLEASE READ: Some academic areas list classes in more than one three-letter prefix (subject code), and some prefixes do not relate in an obvious manner to the subjects of study. For example, Accounting classes may be listed under ACG, APA or TAX prefixes.

Music classes can be found in 10 prefixes. On the other hand, some subjects, such as Sociology (listed under the prefix SYG) are found by a single three-letter prefix that directly corresponds to the subject.
