Prerequisite Terminology

Prerequisite (Prereq): Course that must be satisfactorily completed or competency that must be met before the student can enroll in the desired course.

Corequisite (Coreq): Course that the student must take concurrently with the desired course.

Recommended: Prior course or competency that should help the student succeed in the specified course or program.

Consent: Term used at the end of a stated prerequisite, meaning a student not meeting the requirement may gain entry to the class through Consent of Instructor.  The student may petition the instructor via email or office visit, explaining reasons for requesting consent; if the justification is found acceptable, the instructor may give an electronic override, thereby enabling the student to register for the class online.
