Below are some of the commonly used abbreviations on class schedules.

Days of the Week
M = Monday
T = Tuesday
W = Wednesday
R = Thursday
F = Friday
S = Saturday

Abbreviations can be combined. For example:
TR means the class meets on Tuesday and Thursday every week.
MWF means the class meets every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.


Section codes

The 2- or 3-digit number after the course code is the section number or code for the course.

EXAMPLES of some common special section codes:
ART 1045 - 03N: the N at the end of the code indicates this is a course that meets on campus in the evening (night).
HIST 1010 - N03: the N at the beginning of the code indicates this is a course that only meets online in eLearn.
BIOL 2010 - R50: Section numbers that begin with R followed by a number indicate TN eCampus online classes (formerly called RODP). These classes do NOT use Chattanooga State's eLearn site. For more information, go here.

For help with unusual codes such as RP1 or PT2, please see your advisor or call the department.
