About Prerequisites and Co-requisites
Many classes require prerequisites and/or corequisites. Here are the definitions of those terms:
- PREREQUISITE is a condition of enrollment that a student is required to meet in order to demonstrate readiness for enrollment in a course or educational program.
- COREQUISITE is a condition of enrollment consisting of a course that a student is required to simultaneously take in order to enroll in another course.
- RECOMMENDED is advisory only. The “recommended” notation reflects a condition of enrollment that is strongly advised but not required, to meet before or in conjunction with enrollment in a course or educational program.
Pre-requisites Checking and Registration Blocks
Courses with a prerequisite have computerized blocking in place. If you have not met the prerequisite(s) through either prerequisite course completion or placement, you will be blocked from enrolling in these courses.
Even if you secure an authorization code from the instructor, the block remains and you will be unable to register if the prerequisite requirement has not been met. If you believe you have met the prerequisite or you wish to challenge it, you should see a counselor.
Students who fail to meet the prerequisite or co-requisite requirements will be involuntarily dropped from the course.
Pre-requisite Challenge Procedures
Prerequisite challenges must be submitted to Admissions & Records on or before January 14 for Spring semester. Challenging course prerequisites or corequisites requires written documentation that explains the alternative course work, background, and/or abilities that prepare a student for the course.
