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;
  • may be scheduled with all, some, or one of the course prefixes.
    Example: HNRS 141/MATH 141 Calculus I

To propose crosslisting of a course:

  • If the course has never been taught under any of the course prefixes, propose as a New Course. Use the Course Proposal form (Word doc) and get signatures from all participating department chairs and college deans. All participating departments/programs should include a copy of the proposal in their curriculum packages, with the course prefixes appropriately changed (e.g., a proposal for a new CPE course to be cross-listed as a CSC course would be included in both the CPE program's and the CSC department's curriculum packages; the proposal in CPE's package would include it as a CPE course, to be cross-listed as a CSC course, and the proposal in CSC's package (it can be a photocopy from CPE) would include it as a CSC course, to be cross-listed as a CPE course).
  • If the course is an approved course in the catalog and additional department(s) want to crosslist the course, use a Course Modification (Word doc) form and get signatures from all participating department chairs and college deans. Forward the signed Course Modification form to Academic Programs Office.
