A prerequisite is a course that is required PRIOR to taking an advanced course. A prerequisite course can NOT be taken at the same time as an advanced course. Therefore students must successfully complete the prerequisite course before moving on to an advanced course*.
At the time of registration, it is the responsibility of the student to ensure that all prerequisites have been met for the classes the student is registering for. If, at any time, it is found that a student does not have the necessary prerequisites for a class, he/she will be automatically withdrawn from the class.
* When a student registers for a class with a prerequisite that the student is taking but has not yet completed at the time of registration, the student has to successfully complete the prerequisite for the registration to be valid. If the prerequisite is not successfully completed, the student will be removed from the class.
