Note on courses offered through LPS (College of Liberal and Professional Studies):

Courses with section suffixes between .600 and .699 (e.g., LATN 101.601) are open to College students but are offered through the College of Liberal and Professional Studies (LPS) and most of the seats in these courses are reserved for LPS students until the second day of the semester. The Classical Studies Department cannot provide permits for LPS courses; LPS manages these permits. For details about a particular course offered by LPS, please visit the LPS page for Course Registration and Permit Queries.
