Prerequisites and Co-Requisites

Certain classes may have prerequisite coursework assigned to them to ensure adequate preparation for the material to be presented. Other courses may have a co-requisite course assigned which is a course that must be taken concurrently or at the same time as the selected course. Students who opt to pursue registration in a course without prior completion of the prerequisites or without registering for the specified co-requisite course must complete a Course Prerequisite/Co-Requisite Waiver Request Form. These requests require the review and approval of the Academic Advisor, Program Coordinator, and Dean.

Some classes require state and/or federal clearances in order to register. These classes typically include experiences with children, clients, or observational tasks within the workplace. Refer to the course description section of the College Catalog or specific course prerequisite/co-requisite requirements.
