Understand the Timetable

The Timetable allows you to search sections of courses offered at the University of Lethbridge. This tool will help when planning your course selection before registering on the Bridge.

The Registrar's Office Timetable Search functions and displays similarly to the Bridge’s ‘Course Look Up’. Search results from this Timetable provide you with general information about your courses needed course choices. (There are instructions and tips within the Timetable on how to search for classes.)

Search results display in the format of the image below. Read the corresponding letters to better understand all of the course components.

Course Title | The title of the class

CRN | Course Registration Number (CRN) is a unique five-digit code that identifies each course component in the Timetable. You will need this number when registering under the “Add/Drop” option in the Bridge. “Course Look up” does not require the CRN.

Subject & Number | Subject: the abbreviation of the subject area e.g. CHEM = Chemistry. Number: level of the class. e.g. 1XXX = first year course, 4XXX = fourth year course.

Section | there can be multiple sections for a course – each section may have a different time, day, instructor and/or campus. Courses are offered at Lethbridge and Calgary.
Y = Calgary courses (e.g. MGT 1000 – Y)
All other sections = Lethbridge
