The Class Schedules/Timetable is a listing of all the courses being offered during a particular semester. Please refer to the online version (www.uleth.ca/ross/class-schedules-timetables ) for current Class Schedules/Timetable listings. You should check frequently for changes.
The CRN is a unique five-digit number which identifies each course component in the Class Schedules/Timetable. You will need to use the course component’s CRN when attempting to add a section/lab/tutorial to your schedule.
A section is the main lecture component of a course. Everyone in the section meets together at the same time to get instruction from the professor teaching the course. All courses contain a section component.
A lab or tutorial is an additional component of a course and each lab or tutorial may include only a small subset of students from the section. A lab or tutorial is typically taught by an instructor who works in conjunction with the professor and it is a time for you to review concepts covered in the lecture, work on practice assignment problems, ask questions about course content, and put the theoretical concepts covered in the lecture into practice. Not all courses have a lab or tutorial component.
The Bridge enforces lecture/lab/tutorial links. This means that you must register in all the components of a course (section, lab, and/or tutorial) for your registration in that course to be successful.
You will find a blank schedule on page 125 of the registration guide. This illustrates when most University of Lethbridge courses are likely to occur.
A prerequisite must be completed successfully before you are eligible to register in a given course. For example, Statistics 1770 is the prerequisite for Statistics 2780; this means that you must successfully complete Statistics 1770 before you can take Statistics 2780. For most introductory courses in mathematics and the sciences, a high school prerequisite will be listed and it is assumed that you have the appropriate high school background--either that specific Alberta high school course or its equivalent.
A corequisite is a course which must be taken prior to or in conjunction with another course. For example, Drama 1000 is the corequisite for Drama 2310. This means that you should only register in Drama 2310 if you have already completed Drama 1000, or if you are also registered in Drama 1000 during the same semester as Drama 2310.
In unique circumstances, students lacking the prerequisite(s) or corequisite(s) for a course may apply for a prerequisite waiver from the department offering the course. You must submit this waiver to the appropriate advising office before registering in the course. Please note that the Prerequisite Waiver forms for Management and Fine Arts courses are available from the respective advising offices.
If a course is listed under recommended background, successful completion of that course will be an advantage to you, but is not required in order for you to take the course that recommends it. For example, you may take Biochemistry 2000 without having first completed Biology 1010, but it is recommended that you first take Biology 1010.
A cross-listed course is associated with two different Faculties and counts towards both disciplines. For example, Political Science 3420 is cross-listed with Management 3050. The registration details can be found in the Management section of the Class Schedules/Timetable and if you look up Political Science 3420, you will be redirected to the Management 3050 information.
Equivalent courses can be substituted, one for the other, to meet the same course requirement. For example, prior to the 2010/2011 Calendar year, Geography 1000 was known as Geography 1010. These two courses are equivalent, so if you took Geography 1010 prior to 2010 and now take Geography 1000, you will be repeating a course.
The regulations that apply to repeated courses also apply to equivalent courses. Courses that are equivalent to other courses are denoted with an ‘Equivalent’ course element in the course description.
Substantially similar courses contain a high percentage of course content that is the same. Students who complete substantially similar courses must complete more than the minimum number of courses required in their program (see page 75 of the 2013/2014 UofL Calendar ). For example, if you are in a 40-course program (with 120.0 credit hours) and you take two 3.0-credit courses that are considered substantially similar, you would then have to complete an additional course (total of 41 courses or 123.0 credit hours) in order to fulfill your program requirements.
The Faculty of Management offers programs on three campuses: Calgary, Edmonton, and Lethbridge. On the Lethbridge campus, students can pursue all programs and majors offered by the Faculty of Management.
The Calgary and Edmonton campuses offer the B.Mgt., Post-Diploma B.Mgt., second degree in Management, the PDA, and other Management Certificates. Combined Degrees programs (B.A./B.Mgt., B.Sc./B.Mgt., B.F.A. (New Media)/B.Mgt., B.H.Sc./B.Mgt., B.Mgt./B.Ed., and Post-Diploma B.Mgt./B.Ed.) cannot be completed in their entirety on the Calgary or Edmonton campuses, and all Combined Degrees applicants will be assigned to the Lethbridge campus (see Part 11 - Faculty of Management, Section 4, in the 2013/2014 UofL Calendar ). For information on specific majors and minors for the Calgary and Edmonton campuses, please contact the campus offices.
For detailed information regarding courses offered at the University of Lethbridge campuses in Calgary and Edmonton, see the online Class Schedules/Timetable (www.uleth.ca/ross/class-schedules-timetables ).
Sometimes holidays or other scheduling issues will affect the number of hours allocated to a night course component. In these situations, additional meeting times may be scheduled or the class may end at an earlier date. For Fall 2013, the night class adjustments are as follows:
