Certain classes may require that students take particular courses prior to (pre-requisite) or in conjunction with (co-requisite) other classes. Students must successfully complete these courses in order to move forward in their selected program. A grade of "C" or higher is required for a pre-requisite.

Some classes have more stringent requirements and students will be notified of these requirements through course syllabi.

Failure to obtain a "C" or higher in any pre-requisite course will result in students being administratively dropped by the college from the course(s) that requires the pre-requisite. Students are notified of this change through their Blackhawk student email. Charges on the student's account for the course(s) being dropped will be reduced to zero.
