Course Prerequisites

Some courses have prerequisites or ask that a student have expertise in a particular area prior to enrolling in the course. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that they possess the requisite knowledge for success in the course. The Registrar’s Office does not monitor a student’s prerequisites and will not remove a student from a course unless asked to do so by the professor.

If a student is unsure as to whether or not the course has a prerequisite, they should speak to the instructor directly. Below is a sample list of courses and the associated courses in which they are prerequisites (please note that this list may not be comprehensive as courses change annually).
