Course Descriptions


Numeric Values

001 to 099 are non-baccalaureate developmental courses
100 to 299 are lower-division courses
300 to 499 are upper-division courses
500 to 699 are graduate-level courses

Course Numbering System

The first digit in each course designation is intended to indicate the level of the course. In addition, the first digit also roughly indexes the student’s year of study at the University.

Courses numbered 001 to 099 are non-baccalaureate developmental courses.

Courses numbered 100 to 299 are lower-division.

Courses numbered 300 to 499 are upper-division.

Courses numbered 500 to 599 are graduate level, and may be taken by advanced upper-division, post-baccalaureate, or graduate students for undergraduate or graduate credit.

Courses numbered 600 to 699 are graduate level. These courses may be taken by undergraduate students only on an individual basis, and only with prior, case-by-case approval of the program director of the program offering the course (or his/her designee).

Courses numbered 700 to 799 are doctoral level.

Courses numbered 1000 and above not listed in this catalog because these are professional-level courses carrying University credit, which do not typically apply to credentials or degrees offered by the University. These courses are recorded on student transcripts.

Students should consult relevant sections of this catalog, as well as college and program advising staff, in order to determine which courses are appropriate for their level of study, and which courses satisfy degree requirements for various programs of study.

 

Accounting

Note:
Students who have remained in any ACCT course past the add/drop deadline three times may not register a fourth time for that course.

Transfer credit for Upper-Division Accounting courses will not be accepted from any institution outside of CSUSM.

Upper-Division Accounting courses can only be attempted a total of 2 times (W’s included). Exceptions can be made on a case-by-case basis if a student submits a petition which explains what happened.
