What do "prerequisite" and "co-requisite" mean?

A "prerequisite" is a course you must complete before registering for the next level/sequence course for certain courses. For example, ENG 121 (College Composition I) is a prerequisite for ENG 122 (English Composition II). Pre-requisites are identified in the "Course Description" section of the college catalog or by clicking on the CRN number of the course when registering online.

A "co-requisite" is a course you must complete at the same time you are taking another course. You must sign up for both courses in the same semester if a co-requisite is listed. An example of a co-requisite would be HVA 105 and HVA 107.  Both classes must be completed in the same semester. Co-requisites are identified in the "Course Description" section of the college catalog or by clicking on the CRN number of the course when registering online.

How do I add/drop/withdraw from a course? 

Click here for step by step instructions on how to add/drop or withdraw from a course through The Rock portal. For more information regarding the difference between drop and withdraw see the section below. 

What is the difference between “dropping” or "withdrawing" from a course? 

Drop - If you drop a class before the drop date you are not responsible for payment, and you will not lose College Opportunity Fund (COF) credits. Additionally, a dropped course will not be visible on your permanent student record.

Withdraw - You can withdraw between the drop and withdrawal dates without affecting your grade point average. However, if you withdraw from a class you will be responsible for full payment and you will lose COF credits.

NOTICE: To drop a class, you must do so by the drop date for that class. Classes dropped after the drop date results in a “W” grade and are considered a withdrawal. You will also be responsible for full payment of the class. Click here to see the academic calendar.
