Alias Courses

(page 1 of course request)


An alias course is another subject/number combination for this course that it was known by in the past. An alias course may be a prior version of a course, which may be identified by a different course subject and/or course number. The alias information will be automatically populated by CRS upon approval of the course by Academic Programs.

The information will appear in the course catalog as:

“Previously listed as EECS 170.”


  1. AAST 201           
    Explanation: AAST 201 is being renumbered to AAST 102. Therefore, AAST 201 will be listed as an alias of AAST 102.

    “Previously listed as AAST 201.”

  2. EECS 170
    Explanation: EECS 170 is being assigned the new subject ECE. EECS 170 is the prior subject designation for this course, thus EECS 170 will be the alias course of ECE 170.
