Prerequisites ensure that you have the background knowledge you need to succeed in a course. A prerequisite is a precondition or requirement that you must fulfill before you can register and take a specific Independent Learning course. Some courses must be taken in sequence, requiring you to complete one course before registering for the next. For example, you must successfully complete First Semester Italian before you can take Second Semester Italian.

You must meet all prerequisites before registering for Independent Learning courses.

If you have questions regarding prerequisites, contact Student Services or consult the academic department in charge of the course.
