General Notes

  • Workshops and special programs may not follow the normal calendar or daily schedule. Dates and times can be found in the course listing.
  • The Pass/D+/D/Fail option is not available for distribution courses, except for those courses given only on that basis.
  • An asterisk in the course offerings indicates that either the instructor or location is yet to be determined. (See legend below.)
  • Students who are registering for a course that requires separate enrollment in a lecture and a lab section must register for both courses.
  • Students enrolling in courses requiring computer time should be aware of the Computer Center’s hours when selecting courses to ensure sufficient time for completion of assignments.

Distribution Courses

A number of Hofstra University bachelor⬔s degree programs include distribution requirements among their general degree requirements. Courses that are designated as distribution courses have a two-letter prefix prefacing the course title. The following is a key to determine the distribution category into which a course may fall. For detailed information about distribution courses, see pages 63-64 of the 2007-2008 Undergraduate Bulletin. For a listing of all distribution courses offered, see pages 68-72 of the same publication.
