Prerequisites and Corequisites

Prerequisites

A prerequisite course is a preliminary requirement that must be fulfilled before a student may attend a course with listed prerequisites. Prerequisites must be completed satisfactorily prior to taking the course that requires it. Students who have not satisfactorily completed a prerequisite will be denied admission to the course or courses and/or may be administratively dropped from that course.

Students who believe they have had equivalent course work or experience may request that the prerequisite be waived by the department chair prior to registration. Proof and/or documentation of fulfilling a prerequisite must be presented to the department chair to obtain a waiver for this requirement.

Corequisites

A corequisite course is one that must be taken either before or at the same time as the course that requires it. If a corequisite is indicated, students should enroll for both courses simultaneously.
