Q. What is a pre-req?
A. Many programs require a certain level of previous knowledge before a student qualifies. For example, in order to take the Nursing program you need Math 12 & Biology 12. These are pre-req's.
Q. What if I didn't take one of the pre-req's in high school?
A. Don't worry; you can always pick up the required pre-req through the CCP department, either before you enter the program or, in some cases, while you are taking that program.
Q. Do I have to have an "A" grade in the pre-req in order to get into the program I want?
