    @SculptorDad I just found an information about course numbering (by searching on Google):
    100-299: Undergraduate, reflects the first and second year of study.
    300-499: Undergraduate, generally third & fourth year of study
    500-599: Undergrad/Grad
    600+: Graduate

    And all courses I took in freshman year are between 100-199.
    That course numbering sheet does not specifically mention about "lower-divison" or "upper-division," but since it says 100-299 reflects the first & second year of study, I guess it's LD?

    The numbering is different in each state / college district. But It looks like all your courses are LD.

    They definitely sound like LD. All transcripts have notations at the bottom of the page explaining the number system in order to guide other schools in calculations, with the breakdown similar to what sculptor dad said.

    What college are you talking about?

    I talked about that the courses from my previous school were lower-division courses, but she said I should still be aware of the unit cap.
    Run, don't walk, away from this counselor. Anyone who doesn't understand such a simple point shouldn't be trusted to give advice on anything else.

    Not every college uses the terminology "lower division" versus "upper division".

    But the course numbering system described in reply #16 suggests that courses numbered 100-299 at that school would be the equivalent of "lower division" (frosh and soph level).
