Prerequisites are established so students are prepared with the knowledge base needed in order to understand and apply the new information being taught in a class. Students who do not take the proper prerequisite for a course typically do not perform as well in the class.
It is the student’s responsibility to be sure the prerequisite is completed before enrolling in a subsequent course. If a student fails a prerequisite course, s/he will be dropped in the next upcoming semester that requires from any course that requires the prerequisite.
Prerequisite and course description information is available at http://www.pubapps.vcu.edu/vcucourses/.
If the student has taken the prerequisite course at another institution, then the student should check his/her VCU transcript to ensure the prerequisite course was accepted by the Transfer Center. If the course is not listed, then the student should contact the Transfer Center to ensure they received the transcript from the other institution. Students may need to work with their advisors to obtain a prerequisite overrides to register. Go to MyVCU to make an appointment.
Transient or non-degree holders, who wish to enroll in a Business course and have complete the prerequisite at their home or another institution, should complete the override request found at go.vcu.edu/override.
