About the Prerequisites Form

Use the Prerequisites record to list a course that students are required to take before taking the current course. Creating the list of Prerequisites lets you keep track of what students need to know before starting this course.

The Class Registration wizard automatically reviewed the list of course prerequisites when attempting to add a student to a class. See About the Enrolling a Student with the Class Registration Wizard for details.

Access the Prerequisites record from the Courses service by right-clicking in the Prerequisites tab and selecting New. A window displays.
