  • Course numbers in parentheses are undergraduate numbers for the CTS program.

  • The Fall and Summer terms have 10 weeks; the Winter and Spring terms contain 11 weeks to give some leeway for Christmas Holidays and Spring Break.  Scheduling for assignments in the courses will be determined by the professor.

  • Because the college as a whole is on the semester system, so-called “winter” courses are actually logged with the registrar as courses in the spring semester.
