This is OT, but...
Course numbering varies by college/university, but I think typically 1xx,
2xx, 3xx, and 4xx are aimed at students in years 1, 2, 3, and 4 majoring in
that subject. Pre-100 courses would be remedial or aimed or even limited
to non-major students. So a Math department might have 023 Business Math
that would not count toward the math units needed to get a BS in math.
