Prerequisites

Some classes have prerequisites that you must complete before taking the class.

Completing these course prerequisites prepares you to succeed in your studies.

Registering for Classes

Beginning Fall 2015 semester, students must meet all course prerequisites before they will be able to register for a course.  The only exception is Spanish language courses (SPA).

For most students, an assessment test is also required before taking math, reading, writing or English as a Second Language courses. Visit Assessments for information.
