Student Handbook 2021-2022


Prerequisite Policy

  • Prerequisites are assigned to a course to ensure that the student is properly prepared for the course and will be able to derive the maximum educational benefit from that course. All students must follow course prerequisites unless otherwise noted. Undergraduate students are required to complete all prerequisite courses with a grade of “C” (2.000) or better for courses within their major and all communication courses. Graduate students must complete all course prerequisites with a grade of “C” (2.000) or better.

  • A student should consult the catalog for the most current course prerequisites. It is the responsibility of the student to plan the selection of courses so that all prerequisites for a selected course are successfully completed prior to enrollment.

  • A student who wants to request a waiver of prerequisites must submit the request through their academic advisor. The Prerequisite Waiver form will be forwarded to the department chair or program director for review prior to registration. The student will be notified when a decision is made. A student who has enrolled in a course without the required course prerequisites or an approved prerequisite waiver will be administratively dropped from the course. The student will receive a full tuition refund. See the Tuition Refund Policy section of the Student Handbook for information on refundability of fees.
