COURSE NUMBERING SYSTEM
The course numbering system at Stephen F. Austin State University is assigned an alphabetic prefix and a three digit number. The first of these numeric digits identifies the academic level of the course. Freshman or first year courses are designated by a "1", sophomore or second year courses are designated by a "2", junior or third year courses are designated by a "3", senior or fourth year courses are designated by a "4", graduate level courses are designated by a "5" and doctoral level courses are designated by a "6". Prior to Fall 2010, certain 400 level courses may be approved for graduate level credit. These courses will appear on the graduate transcript. Certain other 100 - 400 level courses may appear on the graduate transcript with zero attempted and earned hours.
ACADEMIC STANDING IS CONSIDERED "GOOD" UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED
Information concerning grades and quality points may be found in SFA Policy 5.5 Course Grades.

Students who make an F in a course can get credit only by repeating the course. Undergraduate students who want to repeat courses to improve their GPA at SFA must repeat those courses at SFA.
