Course Prerequisites/Co-requisites

Catalog and Student Handbook

A prerequisite course serves to promote student success in the related course. When prerequisites are required before enrolling in a course, the prerequisites are identified in the course description. Courses in sequence (identified by numerals I, II, III, and/or IV) usually require the prior course or equivalent be completed before enrolling in the advanced course in the sequence. Exceptions can be made only upon the recommendation of the faculty member and approval by the appropriate Dean of Instruction. When co-requisites are required for a course, usually the co-requisites must be taken at the same time. The prerequisites or their equivalent must be completed satisfactorily before enrolling in a course unless special permission is obtained from the Vice-President of Academic Affairs and Student Services.
