Course prerequisites are automatically checked against your academic record.

You must ensure that you have submitted all official high school and post-secondary transcripts at least three (3) weeks prior to registration to allow enough time for the courses to be recorded on your academic record.
Capilano University courses that are in progress at the time of registration and mid-term high school grades will satisfy prerequisites. However, the Registrar's Office will recheck all students' prerequisites once final grades have been entered at the end of each term or session. If you do not meet a required prerequisite for a course based on your final grades, you will be deregistered from that course and you will not be charged for that course.
