Prerequisites and Corequisites

When planning a program of study and selecting courses to take, students must be aware of prerequisites  and corequisites.

Prerequisite–A prerequisite to a course is a requirement that must be completed before a student can enroll in that course. Prerequisites are intended to ensure that students have the necessary academic foundation to pursue certain credit-bearing courses.

Corequisite–A corequisite to a course is a requirement that must be taken at the same time as, or before, students enroll in that course. When corequisite courses are taken together in the same term and a student wants to withdraw from one of the courses, they must withdraw from the corequisite course as well.
