Due to our recent switch to online instruction, we have made some changes to the traditional prerequisite waiver process.
Instructions for students may be viewed at: Prerequisite Waivers, Enrollment Issues & Independent Study.
Many upper division courses have enforced pre-requisites that ensure a student has completed the required coursework prior to enrollment. A pre-requisite waiver form allows a student to enroll who has not yet met the pre-requisite, or is currently completing it at another institution, from which an official transcript has not been received.
Here are a few details to consider when assisting students through this process:
If you receive an email from a student with either the pre-requisite form or a request with the information below - and you approve of waiving the pre-requisite - please respond with your approval. The student will forward this to firstname.lastname@example.org
Appointment Date and Time
Class # (5 digit)
Course Title (e.g. SPAN 101)
Permission # (if needed*)
A student may email you with a request to allow enrollment in two classes with a time conflict. Please note that students are instructed to acquire approval from both instructors in order to enroll.
Pre-requisite waivers and permission numbers serve different purposes.
Approval to override prerequisites does not indicate permission to occupy a seat in the course; permission numbers are required beginning the second week of the semester and for courses that require instructor consent or to enroll in a class that is closed/full. For more information about permission numbers, please visit the Academic Scheduling site.
