Cross-listed courses may be offered under different identifiers (e.g. COMM and CINE), but they have the same description and syllabus. These courses are listed in the catalog as "cross-listed", and no student may receive credit for the course under one identifier if they have already received credit for the course on the same topic under the other identifier. These courses are treated as equivalent for all purposed including graduation requirements, G.P.A. calculations, and earned credits.
