Crosslisted Courses

A crosslisted course is the same course offered by multiple academic units as indicated by the course’s subject prefixes. An example of a crosslisted course is BIO/CHEM 441 Bioinformatics Applications.

Crosslisted courses:

  • are shared by two or more academic units;
  • have identical course elements (number, title, description, units, mode of instruction, prerequisites) except the course prefix which reflects the academic department or program;
  • are interchangeable for degree requirements;
  • cannot be repeated for degree credit under separate prefixes;
  • may be scheduled with the same instructor, room, and meeting pattern;
  • and may be scheduled with one or both of the course prefixes.
