Department chairs place pre-requisites on some of their courses. What this means is you need to successfully complete (receive a "D" grade or better at FIT, or receive transfer credit) a lower level course or courses. Information about pre-requisites can be found in Class Search by clicking on the course name, course reference number (CRN) and section number.
As an example, the prerequisites for MG306 will appear like this:
Undergraduate level MG 153 Minimum Grade of D or Undergraduate level TT 173 Minimum Grade of D or
Undergraduate level AC 161 Minimum Grade of D
If you have not completed the pre-requisites (MG153 or TT173 or AC161) you will get this registration error message when trying to register for MG306:
For English, Math & Science courses, placement is required. You will not be able
to register for English, Math or Science until you have submitted SAT or ACT scores,
or taken the FIT placement exam, or received transfer credit for appropriate English and Math course.
Review your degree audit (DARS) for your English and Math placement status. If there is a <NO> to the left of these requirements, you have not satisfied placement and will not be able to register for English, Math or Science.
