Fall 2012 – Summer 2013
Each McGill course is assigned a unique seven-character course “number.”
The first four characters (Subject Code) refer to the unit offering the course.
These codes were implemented in September 2002, replacing the three-number Teaching Unit Codes previously used. A complete list of Teaching Unit Codes and their Subject Code equivalents can be found at www.mcgill.ca/students/records/transcripts/key in the section Grading and pre-2002 course numbering.
The three numbers following the Subject Code refer to the course itself, with the first of these indicating the level of the course.
Two additional characters (D1, D2, N1, N2, J1, J2, J3) at the end of the seven-character course number identifies multi-term courses.
