Prerequisites provide the background necessary for successful performance in a course. Students may attempt a course without having prerequisites if they have obtained the consent of the instructor to do so. If the instructor’s consent is not obtained, then students who have not fulfilled published prerequisites may be disenrolled from the course during the first week of classes.
Special approval is required for this course; the student requests an "override" from the department teaching the course, and then the student registers for the course.
+ indicates "only." For example, under class limitation +1 means only freshmen, – indicates "no." Under college limitation, –1,7 means no students from College of Agricultural Sciences or the College of Pharmacy may register.
