Subject: Clarification about Prerequisites: Important Information

Dear Student;

On December 9 you received an email about the completion of prerequisite courses. Below is a clarification of that email; please read this carefully.

  1. If you are currently enrolled in a prerequisite at UI, all you need to do is to successfully complete the course with the required prerequisite grade. The registration system will be able to read your final grade without your submission of any additional proof of a final grade.
  2. If you took the prerequisite in a previous semester either at UI or elsewhere and the required grade is now visible on your UI student record, you do not need to take any further action.
  3. If you are currently enrolled in a prerequisite course at another institution and not at UI and there is no visible proof of a final grade in this course on your UI student record, you will need to submit proof that you have earned the required grade for that prerequisite. This proof may be official, such as a transcript, or unofficial, such as screen shot from a grade book that includes your name, date, and the institution's name. If you do not submit proof of your successful completion of the prerequisite, you will be removed from the related course or its waitlist. A form for submitting this proof may be found in your ISIS account on your "Student Records" page under "Courses and Grades."

Please also note the following:

  • An Incomplete (I) mark in place of a grade will not allow you to continue in the related course or its waitlist and you will be removed from the course. Likewise, the 0 mark (meaning no grade was submitted) will also cause your removal.
  • Once final grades are published, be sure to check to make sure you have successfully completed all needed prerequisites with the final required grade. If you need help finding another course, please contact your advisor.
  • For more information, review the FAQ page.

Meanwhile, we wish you all of the very best during the remaining days of the semester.
