Check the course prerequisites
Most higher level courses have mandatory prerequisites to make sure you have the required background and knowledge of material to successfully complete the course. You may register in the course if you have:
- have completed the prerequisite course, or,
- have received credit for the prerequisite, or,
- are currently enrolled in the prerequisite and will complete it before the next one starts.
A recommended prerequisite is listed to promote success in the course and is not mandatory. Bypassing a suggested prerequisite doesn't give you credit for the course.
Some courses may have special requirements — such as certificates, licenses or special skills — which must be verified on or before the first day of class.
