Prerequisites for courses may be established by the college/department/program that administers the course. Prerequisites are recommended to the Curriculum Committee for approval and are listed with the course description in the University Catalog.

On a case-by-case basis, prerequisites may be waived upon recommendation of the college/program Promotions, Academic Progress/Review, or Student Promotion and Graduation Committee; and with the approval of the department chair that delivers the course, and Program Director, Associate Dean or Dean of the college. In case of a conflict, the ultimate decision will be made by the Dean of the college.
