How to Register for Courses

Learn what you need to know about class prerequisites and corequisites at Madison College.

Before you register for any Madison College class, ask yourself:

  • Do I need this class?
  • Do I meet the requirements to take it? 

Program students can run their degree progress report to find out if they need a class. Prerequisites are requirements you must meet to take certain classes. 

How do you know what’s required?

  • Is there a co-requisite, a course you would take at the same time? 
  • Do you need to be enrolled in a degree program to take the course?

When it comes to figuring out if you meet the pre-requisites for a class, read the entire class description and then think about what it requires:

  • Are its requirements joined by the words “and” or “or”?
  • When requirements are joined by the word “and”, you MUST meet all the pre-requisites BEFORE you can enroll. 
  • If the requirements are joined by the word “or”, like a test score or a class, you only need to meet one of them.
