Level 2 Courses

All the old Level 2 4-credit courses have been phased out. If you still require one of the old Level 2 courses listed on the left-hand side of Table 2, you should register for the equivalent new 3-credit course listed on the right-hand side, in the semester it is offered.

You should note that the equivalent courses are all 3 credits so you will have to register for one or more additional courses to make up the credit requirements for your degree. The additional courses should be COMP or INFO courses (Level 2 or Level 3).
