Senate Policy:  34-58, Course Availability

Senate Policy:  34-60, Prerequisites and Concurrent Courses

Faculty, or others designated by the academic unit in which their courses are offered, should review class enrollment lists at their earliest convenience to identify students who should be dis-enrolled and to alert the unit's associate dean or the dean's designated staff member that dis-enrollment steps must be implemented.

A student may be dis-enrolled from a course for which he or she has not completed the listed prerequisites, or has not registered for a course that must be taken concurrently, or has previously taken the course for credit and completed it with a grade of C or higher.

A student must immediately be notified in writing by the academic unit in which the course resides that she or he is being dis-enrolled, preferably with sufficient time for the student to enroll in an alternate course. Dis-enrollment must take place during the regular drop/add period of the semester.
