Reading data from input File from columns

I've this data in the input file

CISC115.59     A
MANG100.01      B
COMP107.59      D
MATH140.59      C
MUSIC101.59      F

I want to read only the first column and store it in variable courseName. This is the statement i'm using to achieve this.

courseName =;

And i've also tried courseName=inputFile.nextLine();

But i'm unable to read just the data in first column(which is the course name) instead it is reading the data in both columns (i.e. course name and grade)

How can i only read the course name and not the grade next to it.?
