Course Prequisites/Corequisites

Prerequisites for courses are based on the academic year the course is taught – not your program catalog year.  Your program catalog year provides the list of courses you are required to take to complete your degree. Prerequisite/corequisite requirements are never waived for any reason. The only overrides that are provided are for students that have completed the prerequisites, but they are not recognized by PatriotWeb.
