What are jointly offered courses?

Some UW courses are “jointly offered”, which means one course is offered under two names. An example is COM 440/POL S 461: Mass Media Law. COM 440 and POL S 461 are the same course, same times and places, same instructor. In the time schedule these courses have the notation “J”, and if you click on the SLN you’ll see the other name that the course is offered under. You can enroll in a jointly offered course under either title, and the tip is that there may be registration restrictions under one title but not under the other, or one may be full while the other is still open. Always check under both titles!
