Transcript of Academic Record: Course Numbering on the Transcript

Prior to September 2002, course numbers had seven-character designations beginning with a three-number code indicating the teaching unit/department. The next three digits specified the course, with the first of these indicating its level. The final character was a letter indicating the term, or terms, during which the course was offered. For example:

107-200A = Philosophy (107) course (200) in Fall term (A);

301-202B = Architecture (301) course (202) in Winter term (B);

154-230D = Economics (154) course (230) extending for two terms, Fall and Winter (D).

A list of the former Teaching Unit Codes and their Subject Code equivalents is available at www.mcgill.ca/student/records/transcripts/key.

For information on our current course numbering, see Programs, Courses and University Regulations > University Regulations and Resources > Undergraduate > Registration > Course Information and Regulations > Course Numbering.

Note for Continuing Studies: Examples of course numbers displaying on transcripts prior to September 2002 are:
  • 280-211X = Intro. to Financial Accounting in Fall term (X);
  • 629-202Y = Micro Economics in Winter term (Y);
  • 660-221Z = Project Management extending for two terms, Fall and Winter (Z).
