Course Prerequisites

Be aware of course requirements and prerequisites when registering for courses.

Dropped course(s)

If you registered for a course but don’t meet the prerequisites, you will be dropped from that course.

When your class is dropped, it is immediate and final.

  • The vacated seat in the class(es) will not be held and the seats will be available immediately to other registering students.
  • The registration system will prevent you from re-registering into these dropped courses for unmet prerequisites.

Why was I originally allowed to register for the course?

  • When you originally registered for the course,  the registration system assumes your in-progress courses will be successfully completed, and that you will stay in the major that you were in when you registered.
  • Your registration is reviewed prior to the start of the semester and any changes (i.e., not passing a prerequisite course, changing your major) may affect your eligibility for the registered course.

Requests for Prerequisite Overrides

  • Niner Central and the Office of the Registrar do not manage course requirements and therefore cannot authorize  prerequisite overrides, nor provide prerequisite information/changes.
  • If you have questions regarding course prerequisites, please contact the department offering that particular course/section.
  • We encourage you to contact your academic advisor to request assistance in identifying appropriate course alternatives.
