Course numbers at the University of Iowa consist of an alphabetical prefix (up to four letters) showing the college, department, or program, followed by a colon and a four-digit numerical suffix for the individual course. For example, SOC:2810 identifies the course numbered 2810 in the Department of Sociology (SOC), titled Social Inequality.

Course suffix numbers 0000-0999 designate prelower-level courses; numbers 1000-2999 designate lower-level undergraduate courses; numbers 3000-4999 designate courses for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students (except in the College of Engineering, where numbers 3000-5999 designate courses for undergraduate and graduate students); numbers 5000-7999 designate graduate-level courses; and numbers 8000-9999 designate professional-level courses.
