Students must have the necessary prerequisites for each course. Prerequisites, if any, are indicated with the individual course listing and are enforced at the time of registration. Prerequisite courses taken at institutions other than Bridgewater State University must be documented (transcript or grade report, and in some cases, course description) prior to registration.
Students who wish to enroll in a course without the prerequisite(s) must obtain a Prerequisite Override Form prior to registering for the course. The form must be signed by the chairperson of the department through which the course is offered and, in some cases, the instructor of the course. Students seeking an override of professional education prerequisites for courses taught through the College of Education and Allied Studies must complete a Request for a Student to Take an Upper Level Professional Education Course Without Formal Program Admission form and obtain all required signatures. Please refer to the University Catalog.
Note: Signed prerequisite override forms may be submitted to the Registrar's Office before web registration or along with the registration form for in-person, mail or fax registration.
