Course Registration Numbers & Syllabi
How do I look up a Course Registration Number (CRN)?
A new CRN is assigned to each course by semester. You will need to enter this unique CRN whenever you register for a course. This can be done through Registration Central or directly through the Andrews course schedule.
As the CRN changes with semesters, be sure to select the semester in which you will be registering. While self-paced courses are open year-round, the CRN number does change with the Andrews academic calendar:
• Self-paced courses: check the current self-paced calendar for semester start and end dates
• Interactive online courses: check the current semester calendar start and end dates
TIP: It is helpful to filter the schedule by setting campus to ‘field-based’ and selecting the department or attribute (self-paced or internet, depending on the type of online course selected). The CRN number is shown to the right of the course abbreviation as the number in brackets. For example, the CRN number for RELB 101V 901 (1970) is 1970. Write the CRN numbers needed down to enter in Registration Central.
Where can I review a course syllabus?
Course syllabi can be found online in three places:
1. Through the course schedule: you can view this copy to learn more about the course before registering. The syllabus will be linked in the far right column of the row displaying course information. Always select the semester desired first. Syllabi are posted within two weeks of the start date of a course. If not found, email the instructor, using the email address provided on the course schedule.
2. On your ivue page: click on the green arrow document link to the right of the class title in the table at the foot of your ivue page for the selected semester. This is an easy place to find it once registered and ready to purchase textbooks.
3. In your course space: a copy is linked in the orientation module of your course online. Once you begin studying, it is a good idea to keep rechecking the syllabus here.

How do I calculate my GPA?
A minimum grade point average (GPA) may be required for admission to a graduate program, or to continue in a professional program. The University of Southern Maine shares a GPA calculator online, where you can enter the GPA hours for courses this semester and your expected grades, to view the projected GPA. This link includes tips on how to achieve your goal GPA.
