More Information: Course Format for DARS

Entering a course in the correct format:

1
Campus Code
2
Course Prefix
3
Course ###
4
XX Course Seq. Number in "Transfer Credit"
  • Field 1 - Enter a campus code: 1 = Bothell course; 2 = Tacoma course; 0 = All other courses
  • Field 2 - Enter the prefix exactly as it appears on the audit:
    				HIST__
    				M_E___
    				FRENCH
    				H_A&S_
    			
  • Field 3 - Enter the course number: 424, 1XX, 4** (any 400-level course)
  • Field 4 - Enter a sequence number—ONLY if the student has identical transfer courses ending in XX
    				MATH  1XX 
    				MATH  1XX  01
    				MATH  1XX  02
    			

    Use the final two digits to tell DARS which course you want to use.

    0 MATH 1XX 01

    Use 00 to indicate the first course.

    0 MATH 1XX 00

    Note: If the student has MATH 1XX at each of two or more schools, write to dars@u.washington.edu. We'll assign different codes.

    Tips:

    • You can do this yourself if the prefix belongs to your department. Just change one of them to, say, MATH 1XX 50 on the SRF 325-->330 screen.
