Prerequisites and Course Regression
You must meet the prerequisites for a course, unless you receive permission from the course instructor and appropriate dean. It is recommended that you earn a minimum grade of C in all prerequisite courses. If you receive a grade of D+, D, D-, F, or FW, you should talk with your advisor or department.
If you do not receive credit for a prerequisite, you cannot take the next course in your sequence of study.
Departments and programs sometimes identify courses as part of particular learning sequences that require a progression from one course to the next. Regression occurs when a student takes a course that is earlier in the sequence than a course he or she has already taken and passed. Courses taken in regression do not count toward graduation.
