Any requirement that a student must meet before registering for a course is considered a prerequisite. Prerequisites may include:

  1. prior completion of specific GMU courses (i.e. ENGH 101)
  2. minimum completed credits (i.e. must have completed 90 credits)
  3. 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.

Not all prerequisites are enforced by Patriot Web during registration.  See enforcing prerequisites and enforcing restrictions for more information.
