Important Information about Prerequisites

Please be sure to check the prerequisites for the courses in your proposed schedule; prerequisites are shown in the course description in the online catalog.  If you are meeting a prerequisite through AP, be sure your score has been recorded by checking your record in BannerWeb.  If it is not there, you will need to receive an override from the department prior to registration.  If you are meeting a prerequisite with other high school work or through IB, you will need to receive a waiver in order to register online.
