Prerequisites, Corequisites, & Linked Courses

Some classes are linked or paired with other classes. In Navigate, they will be indicated with a "Requisite" tag in the course box (see image below)

These could be college-level courses paired with college-prep courses, courses with linked clinicals, or Learning Communities. If you attempt to register for just one of these, you will get a Requisite Error.

Temp Requisite ImageOnce you choose the section of the course you want, a yellow alert will show in the bottom of the box. In order to complete the registration, you will need to click on "View Corequisites."




A prerequisite is a course requirement that must be met before you can register for a particular course.

  • BIO111 (grade of C or higher), -or-
  • Biology Placement Test with a score of 70 or higher, or permission of Department Chair or Advisor.  

The best place to look is our Online Course Catalog.

A linked course is one that is specifically paired with another course.
These could be preparatory courses linked with their college-level course, courses linked to clinical, or learning communities.
You must take all the courses that are linked together. 
There is no way to take them individually.


Co-requisites are courses that must be taken at the same time or in the same semester as another course.  
Co-Requisite Example:
ENG0094 Studio 121
To register for ENG 0094, students must enroll in ENG 1021 at the same time and complete them during the same semester.
