This report will list the course section and then each student (ID, name, and course registration status) who does not meet the required prerequisites.  After the student name, the prerequisites are listed line by line with a “met” or “not met” indicator.  You should review the report to determine if a student should be allowed to remain registered or wait-listed for the course.

  • If you choose to allow the student to remain in the course, you must issue a PREREQ override for that student.  If you do not issue this override, the next time the student adjusts his/her schedule the course will be automatically dropped.
  • If you want the student removed from the course, you must notify the Registrar’s Office in writing or by email. A notice will be mailed to the student that they have been dropped due to unmet prerequisites.  Students may be administratively dropped only until the add deadline in a term.
