Prerequisite Checking and Priority Registration
Prerequisite checking went live December 2005 and will be active during the upcoming Priority Registration period.
In previous semesters if a student's academic coursework did not satisfy a course's prerequisites, the registration system gave a student a warning that the prerequisite was not met. However, the system would allow the student to book the class.
With prerequisite checking turned on, the registration system will NOT allow the student to book the course if a prerequisite has not been met. The student will receive an error message similar to the error messages which are already in use for courses limited to majors only or to students in the Honors College.
If you receive an error message that you believe is a mistake (i.e. you have met or are currently enrolled in a prerequisite for a course), then contact the department office. If you wish to request an exception to the prerequisite, contact the department office.
Work is in progress to have external coursework entered into Campus Management so that transfer work will be taken into account in prerequisite checking.
