+-What is a Prerequisite?
When a course has a prerequisite, it means that a student must have certain knowledge to be successful in the course. The prior knowledge may be a skill (ie: type 40 wpm), an ability (ie: speaks and writes French fluently), a placement preparation score, or successful completion of a course (ie: grade C or better in CHE-1A).
+-What is a Corequisite?
When a course has a corequisite, it means that a student is required to take another course concurrent with or prior to enrollment in the course. Knowing the information presented in the corequisite course is considered necessary for a student to be successful in the course. (Completion of, or concurrent enrollment in, Math 1A is required for Physics 4A.)
+-What is an Advisory?
When a course has an advisory, it means that a student is recommended to have
certain preparation before entering the course. The preparation is considered
advantageous to a student’s success in the course. Since the preparation is advised,
but not required, students will not be blocked from enrolling in a class if they do not
meet the advisory.
