The numbers and letters describing each course are explained as follows:
Using the symbol "BI 203 a,b" as the example,
1. The capital letter preceding the numbers indicate the department in which the course is listed.
BI (Bible Interpretation)
BL (Bible Language)
MD (Ministry Development)
2. The numbers represent the year, whether requires or elective, and the unit value of a given subject. For example, the numbers "203" understood as follows:
The first digit "2" indicates that the course is usually taken in the second year. This does not mean that the subject cannot be taken at a later time. For Remedial English, a "0" is noted to indicate it is below institute level and is taken for no credit.
The second digit "0" indicates that the course fulfills an absolute requirement in the particular department. A "5" would indicate that the course is an elective.
The third digit "3" represents the unit value given for the course.
3. The minuscule letters after the number indicate whether the course is taken in the fall of spring semester. For example, "BI 203 a,b":
The letter "a" at the end of the number "203" represents the fall semester of a full-year course.
The letter "b" at the end of the number "203" represents the spring semester of a full-year course.
Thus, the symbol, "BI 203 a" would identify the course as being in the Bible Interpretation department, is usually taken in the second year, fulfills a department requirement, is a 3 unit course, and is the fall semester of a full-year course.
