Prerequisites and corequisites

ELIS course descriptions can have prerequisites or corequisites. If a course has a prerequisite, the prerequisite must be completed before the course can be enrolled in.

Course descriptions must be part of a program to add prerequisites and corequisites. To add a prerequisite, go to the Course Descriptions tab of a program. In the course list for the program click the Key icon to set prerequisites.

Prerequisite icon

The prerequisites screen shows you a list of courses that can be added as prerequisites. You can add course descriptions from both inside and outside the current program. If you add a course description from outside the program, the course can be added to the program so that students can find it.

Add prerequisite to course description screen

To add a prerequisite to your course, select the course and click "Add prerequisite" - you can select multiple courses here by control-clicking.

To remove a prerequisite from your course, click a course or control-click courses in the the "Existing Course Description Prerequisites" list and click "Remove prerequisites".

Select the "Add prerequisites to program" checkbox to add courses outside the program to the program.

When you are done, click Exit to return to the previous screen.
