    • 1 space (will not use hypens, dashes, underlines or other delineators)
    • 5 digit numeric suffix identifying the course
      • 1st character - course level
      • 2nd and 3rd characters - course identifier
      • 4th character - multipurpose
        • 1 or 2 will be used for courses with credit hours greater than 9, 3-9 will be used if if additional characters are needed for the course identifier due to size of catalog, 0 will be the default placeholder if not used for credit hours or course identifier
