Course Sequencing

Students should normally complete preliminary skills and basic courses before proceeding to advanced courses.  Students must complete all prerequisites before enrolling in a course.  Students who have not met the prerequisites may be required to withdraw from classes at the start of the semester.  Adherence to prerequisites is an important part of good education.  The prerequisite course course teaches materials that the faculty assume are known by all students entering an advance course.  This knowledge will not be taught during the advanced course.  Students without proper prerequisites will not be prepared for certain aspects of the course and may impede the learning process of students who are properly prepared.
