Policies, Procedures, and Forms
Our Course/Class service area operates according to established University policies and procedures. This ensures that students, faculty, and staff can easily plan their curricula and create efficient schedules. Please review these policies prior to submitting course or class updates.
Pre‐Requisite: A pre‐requisite is something that a student must complete (or be enrolled in for a previous term) before the start date of the desired class. By default, the system will include any ‘In‐Progress’ courses from a previous term as meeting the requisite.
Co‐Requisite: A co‐requisite is something that a student can complete prior to, or at the same time as, the desired class. This means that if one course is a co‐requisite to another, students can enroll in both courses, simultaneously, within the same term – or could have already completed the course in a previous term, to meet the requisite.
Academic coordinators can use the Enrollment Requirement Form below to add a pre-requisite or co-requisite to a class.
Course attributes are system codes used to categorize sections of courses for purposes such as course scheduling and publishing. The assignment of course attributes is managed by the Office of the University Registrar in coordination with academic units across the University. Many course attributes can be used as search criteria in the Course Catalog and Class Search.
