Any requirement that a student must meet before registering for a course is considered a prerequisite. Prerequisites may include:
- prior completion of specific GMU courses (i.e. ENGH 101)
- minimum completed credits (i.e. must have completed 90 credits)
- required major, class, etc (i.e. must have Senior status or must be a Theater major)
Students are responsible for meeting course prerequisites before attempting to register for a class. If a student has registered for a class without having met the prerequisites, the department may request that the student be dropped the course. This administrative drop typically occurs during the first week of class.
