Course Dropped Due to Prerequisite Grade

If you were dropped from a course this term because of a grade you got last term, don't give up.

The What and Why about Prerequisites

A prerequisite is a class that prepares you for future, more advanced classes. It covers the basic information that an instructor in a more advanced class will expect you to know day on one. Instructors do not cover the information that should have been learned in a prerequisite course.

You need prerequisites in order to get to new, more in-depth information. Instructors cannot spend time covering the prerequisite information.
If a student doesn’t take a required prerequisite course, they are often not prepared for the advanced courses.

A Word about Financial Aid

Financial aid is often able to pay for multiple attempts at passing a class, as long as you are eligible. If your grades from last term cause you to lose eligibility for this term's aid, you still have options.
