Graduate Studies Prerequisites

Prerequisite courses are undergraduate classes required for students who need to prepare for graduate study. Course descriptions for undergraduate prerequisite courses are listed in the university catalog.

Foundation courses are graduate-level courses that may be required of some students whose previous academic background does not reflect the course content described. Foundation courses with grades below a C will need to be repeated. The academic standards for students in foundation courses are the same as the standards for other courses in the student's graduate program. 

Students should refer to Testing Services regarding policies and procedures for satisfying prerequisite and foundation requirements through testing options. These options may not be exercised after the first term of enrollment in a graduate program. Contact Graduate Admissions or Online Admissions (for online students) for more information on prerequisite and foundation courses.
