Course Selection & Add/Drop

Course Code are made up of 2 components, i.e. Subject Area Code and Catalog Number. For example, for course MATH5001, “MATH” is “Subject Area Code” and “5001” is “Catalog Number”.



Class Section

Class Section refers to the class opened under a specific course. For example, there can be two sections of classes, A & B, opened under the course HIST5010. These class sections can be scheduled in different time slots and taught by different instructors. Students are not allowed to take more than 1 class section of the same course in the same term.



Class Number is a number assigned by the system to indicate a specific class opened in a term. It is NOT equivalent to Catalog Number. For example, RELS5001A and RELS5001B, both offered in 2011-12 Term 1 may have class numbers “1234” and “5432” respectively.
