Course Prerequisite Policies

The following information is provided to help you plan your course of study.

  • Prerequisites for BIT courses will be strictly enforced to the extent that class roles will be checked during the semester and any student who has not completed the prerequisites will be dropped from the course without warning.
  • No BIT courses (and specifically BIT 4444 and BIT 4454) are guaranteed to be offered during the summer. Summer course offerings depend on instructor availability.
