You are required to meet all of the requisites for a given course. Failure to meet requisites can prevent your registration for the course or result in a drop or withdrawal for that course. Requisites are listed for each class in Course Offerings.
Some students may find that they are prevented from registering or receiving other University services because a hold has been placed on their academic record. Holds are placed when students fail to meet financial or other obligations. Students need to clear the hold with the office that placed the hold before they will be allowed to register or receive other University services.
