Course Section Identifiers


Effective Fall 2020, section designators are changing.  The 2020FA section designators are listed at the bottom of this page.  

Every curriculum (for credit) course at A-B Tech includes section designators, which indicate where, how, and when the class is taught. 

The meaning of each course section designator is listed below.
