To enroll in some courses, you must either complete a prerequisite(s) which may include courses, particular qualifications, or class standing, or concurrently register (corequisite) for another course(s). To see the prerequisites or corequisites, you must select the class number or the course section information and view the details in the course description in the registration system.
If you wish to register for courses where you have completed the prerequisite course at another institution, you must complete and submit the Corequisite, Prerequisite or Instructor Permission form to verify if the prerequisite is satisfied. This form will be reviewed by UMR administrators; you will be emailed a response within 48 hours of submittal. If approved, you will be emailed additional instructions on how to register.
UMR requires certain sections to be taken concurrently, referred to as corequisites. If you are attempting to register for a course that has a corequisite and you believe you have satisfied the corequisite with a transfer course, complete and submit the Corequisite, Prerequisite or Instructor Permission form. This form will be reviewed by UMR administrators; you will be emailed a response within 48 hours of submittal.
For courses that you do not satisfy the prerequisites or corequisites, you will need the instructor's permission. To gain permission, you must complete and submit the Corequisite, Prerequisite or Instructor Permission form. This form will be reviewed by UMR faculty and administrators; you will be emailed a response within 48 hours of submittal. If approved, you will be emailed additional instructions on how to register.
More about prerequisites
When courses that must be taken in sequence are prerequisites, only the last course of the sequence is listed. When no course subject precedes the course number listed as a prerequisite (e.g., "prereq 3221"), that course is in the same subject as the course being offered. Likewise, a prerequisite reading "6 cr" means 6 credits in courses offered by the same department. A comma always means "and."
Work equivalent to a prerequisite course (having either the same content or requiring the same competence) may be accepted in place of that prerequisite. Instructors may, in some instances, waive prerequisites at their discretion and provide you with a permission number that allows you to register for a course.
Occasionally, a class will be limited to students of a particular class standing. Your class standing is determined by your total number of completed credits.
|Class standing||Completed semester credits|
|Senior||90 or more credits|
|Junior||60.000 - 89.999 credits|
|Sophomore||30 - 59.999 credits|
|Freshman||Less than 30 credits|
Departments and colleges may use the registration system to place qualified students into courses or sections on a priority basis (seniors, majors, for example). Even if you meet all stated prerequisites for a course, including class standing, it is possible that you may also need to meet other qualifications. For this reason, it is helpful to list both first and second course choices on your Registration Request form or in the email request online form. Check the calendar page for your term to see timing for cancel/add requests.
