What is PERC?
PERC stands for Post-Enrollment Requisite Check. It is a process that departments can opt into in order to help enforce enrollment requirements that were in progress at the time a student enrolled. Confirming that students have met enrollment requirements helps ensure they are making successful degree progress and enrolling in appropriate courses.
What is a requisite and how is it related to my classes?
A requisite is the academic preparation required of all students to be successful in a course. Requisites can take the form of a prerequisite (completed prior to the start of the course) or co-requisite (taken concurrently with the course). Students who enroll for a future course while a requisite is in-progress will be conditionally enrolled. This means that enrollment is allowed in the future course under the expectation that the current course will be successfully completed.
For example, if a student is currently enrolled in Math 112 during the Fall term and enrolls in Math 113 for the Spring term, they would be enrolling under the condition that they successfully complete Math 112, which is the pre-requisite for Math 113. The in-progress course can provisionally be used to meet a requisite at the time of enrollment.
