If you are not a student and would like to view requisite information, go to www.utah.edu and click on "Academics" and select "Catalogs, Schedules & Calendar." Choose a term, select a department, and click on the subject code next to the appropriate catalog number. The requisite for the course will be listed under the “Enrollment Information.”
- Prerequisite – a course(s) or condition that must be satisfactorily completed prior to enrolling in another course.
- Co-requisite – a course(s) that must be taken concurrently with or prior to another course.
Prerequisites and CR/NC:
Please be aware that students who have elected CR/NC will not automatically meet the grade requirement for prerequisites of future course(s). A student attempting to use a CR grade to meet the prerequisite requirement for a course will need to contact the department offering the course to obtain a permission code before they will be able to enroll in the selected course(s).
Requisite Checking Q & A:
What requisites will be checked during registration?
The above listed departments are enforcing requisites for all undergraduate (1000 – 5999) level courses that have requisites/co-requisites listed in the course catalog. These departments will check for completion of UofU and transfer courses (with a qualifying grade), major status, and/or test scores (ACT, SAT, AP, or ACCUPLACER).
How does course requisite checking work during registration?
uEnroll checks the student’s academic record (University of Utah and transfer courses that are posted) to see if the requisite course (with minimum grade), major status, or test score has been successfully completed. If the requisite was not successfully completed, the student will be given an error message indicating the requisite has not been met and the student will not be allowed to register for the course. Requisite checking will occur for all students who wish to take a course within the departments listed in the table above.
uEnroll also counts as "satisfied" any requisite the student is currently enrolled in when registering for a future term. However, if the student fails to satisfactorily complete the currently enrolled requisite course after the grade has been posted, the student will be dropped from the future term course due to failure to meet requisite requirements.
What can satisfy a requisite through uEnroll?
- Courses (e.g. MATH 1010) taken at The University of Utah or articulated Utah System of Higher Education (USHE) transfer courses that are satisfactorily completed.
- Standardized placement test scores that have been recorded in the student’s academic record.
- Student’s major status within a college at The University of Utah.
- Student Groups (e.g. HPGM, CBUS, etc.) that are active at the University of Utah.
- Cumulative GPA
- Academic Level (Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, Senior)
What cannot be used to satisfy a requisite through uEnroll?
- Older UofU courses (pre fall 1998)
Has transfer work been posted to a student's academic record?
A student can generate an undecided Degree Audit (formerly known as My Degree Dashboard) by logging into Campus Information Services (CIS). If the transfer courses have been posted they will be viewable towards the end of the report.
Also, if a student has received the Transfer Credit Summary from the Admissions Office via mail it will indicate the transfer courses have been posted. The Transfer Credit Summary is also available to view by logging into CIS.
NOTE: It may take 4 to 6 weeks once a transcript has been received within the Admissions Office to post the courses to a student’s academic record.
Where can a student view the equivalencies of transfer courses?
Equivalencies can be viewed by logging into Campus Information Services (CIS) and generating an undecided Degree Audit (formerly known as My Degree Dashboard). Towards the end of the report a section titled “Transfer Courses with UofU Course Equivalencies” will show the transfer course in the right column and the equivalent UofU course in the left column.
Are there requisites that are NOT enforced?
Yes, departments (excluding the departments listed in the above table) may list requisites that are not enforced during registration. Such requisites may be enforced at the instructor’s or department’s discretion where a student is required to obtain a permission number from the department to register.
Do requisites differ with each section of a course? (e.g. MATH 1010-001 vs. MATH 1010-002)
No, all sections of the same course will carry the same requisite.
