*A co-requisite course is one that must be taken concurrently with another course. Specifically, it involves a total of 5 credit hours that are designed to complement and enhance the learning experience of the paired course. This structure ensures that students recieve a comprehensive understanding of the subject matter, as the courses are interconnected and mutually supportive. This approach is designed to ensure that students with immediate academic needs receive timely support and resources to foster their success from the onset of their academic journey.
