How are prerequisites enforced?

A grade of C- or better (CR is fine) is required for any course that is a prerequisite to a CS course. MySSU enforces prerequisite courses, but it doesn’t enforce this C- minimum grade. As a result, MySSU may allow you to enroll in a course even when you haven’t fulfilled its C- grade prerequisite, but you will not be allowed to remain in that course. We identify these cases before the semester begins, and we administratively drop students who are in violation of this policy.

After grades are posted, we will check to make sure that all students have passed the prerequisites for next semester's courses. If your Academic Requirements Report in MySSU does not show a green check mark for each of your relevant prerequisite courses at that time, we will contact you before registration reopens. You should be prepared to prove that you have met all prerequisites (for example, at a JC) by the beginning of next semester. Otherwise, you will be administratively dropped from the course during the add/drop period.
