CORQ_REQ message
(Co-requisite Requirement)


This status message indicates that a student is required to also enroll in another course in order to enroll in the section he or she has attempted to enroll in.  The status message will tell the student if he or she can enroll in any section of the course or if the student must enroll in a specific section (CRN) of the course.

Co-requisite may be any section of a course

This situation can be identified by a status message similar to the following example, where a subject and course number are displayed (as opposed to specific CRN).

  Example: CORQ_CWP 101 REQ

Co-requisite must be a specific section of a course

This situation can be identified by a status message similar to the following example, where a specific CRN is displayed.

  Example: CORQ_CRN 2454 REQ 

In either case the student must first search for appropriate course sections, add them to the registration Add Classes Worksheet and submit the worksheet. To do this, perform the following three steps:

Step 1: Select the Class Search button at the bottom of the page.  Search for one of the co-requisite courses.  Select the check box in the first column in the search results for the CRN you want and click the Add to Worksheet button at the bottom of the page.  You are not yet registered for this course

Step 2: Select the Class Search button at the bottom of the page again.  Search for the other co-requisite course.  Select the check box in the first column in the search results for the CRN you want and click the Add to Worksheet button at the bottom of the page.  You are not yet registered for these courses. 

Step 3: Click the Submit Changes button at the bottom of the page.  Assuming there are no other restrictions that would prevent you from enrolling in the sections, you will be enrolled in the two CRNs.  Check you schedule to verify the two sections you wanted have been added.
