When you select a class to enroll in, the system checks your academic record to ensure you have met the prerequisites for the course. It will determine whether you are currently enrolled in or have completed the prerequisite course(s) with a grade of “C” or higher, and whether you are a major or a pre-major.
If you are currently enrolled in a prerequisite, you are allowed to register on the condition that you complete the prerequisite with a grade of “C” or higher. If you do not pass the prerequisite course, you must drop the class requiring this prerequisite and add the prerequisite. If you fail to do this, you will be disenrolled from the course.
If you receive a prerequisite error message but are certain that you meet all course prerequisites, go to the department offering the course to request permission to enroll in a specific section of that course.
- Present a copy of your unofficial transcript. Highlight the grade for each prerequisite course(s), your total units and current major. (Your current major is printed above the current term on your transcript.)
- If a transfer course was accepted to fulfill a prerequisite, also bring a copy of your Transfer Credit Report with the transfer course and grade highlighted and a photocopy of the “Petition for Acceptance of Transfer Credits for CBE Major/Minor” form.
