Add Co-requisite Classes

This is a tutorial only. No log in is required.


A co-requisite course requires concurrent enrollment in another associated course. In order to successfully enroll in co-requisite classes, you must:

  1. Find out what classes go together by reviewing specific class requirements listed in class notes.
  2. Put both co-requisite classes into your shopping cart before you finish enrolling.
  3. Confirm the enrollment transaction and check for any messages.

  3. Click the Next button.

Step 6

The Select Classes to Add page displays, and the lecture class PAS 113A-01 has been placed into your shopping cart.  

Next, put the co-requisite lab UNIV 61P-01 into your cart. Locate the class number that you wrote down earlier, #16789 in this example.

  1. Enter the 5-digit class number for the co-requisite lab in the Enter Class Nbr box.
  2. Click Enter.
