  6. The letters following the course name give important information about the class' format, meeting times, and location. For example, "Writing and Inquiry D1" has a "D," which means it meets during the day. Refer to our Course Section Identifiers webpage for a full list of what these letters indicate.


Class Search Tips

You can narrow search results based on the Course Section Identifiers used in the third segment of the course code (e.g. ENG-111-D1). To do this enter asterisk(*) + Course Section Identifier Code + asterisk(*) in the "Section (optional)" box of the search page. For example, if you wish to find a 100% online minimester section, you would enter *OM* in the "Section (optional)" box.
