A student should not register a course when its prerequisite course(s) had not been satisfied.

During each semester/summer, the college secretary is required to cancel all registered courses whose prerequisite(s) have not been passed or without previously approved waiver of prerequisite(s).

 

WAIVER OF PREREQUISITES

(Approved by the CEAT Faculty on June 24, 2013; Effective 2nd Semester 2013-2014)

It is the College policy not to allow the waiver of prerequisite(s) for the following courses:

  1. Institute of Agricultural Engineering

    It is the Institute's policy not to allow the waiver of prerequisite(s) for the following courses:

    ABE 47/ AENG 70 (Farm Electrification Design)

    ABE 50/ AENG 30 (Refrigeration and Cold Storage)

    ABE 51/ AENG 31 (Crop Processing I)

    ABE 73/ AENG 42 (Soil and Water Conservation Engineering)

    Note: The prerequisite(s) of the above courses may be waived provided that the student is graduating within one year from the time of application and that he/she had previously attended the prerequisite course(s).

  2. Department of Chemical Engineering

    Courses approved by the University Council as prerequisites to other courses shall not be waived except in highly meritorious cases:

    1. To a student who has previously enrolled and fully attended a course/courses that is/are a prerequisite/s to another. The student who is granted permission under these rules is required to enroll in the prerequisite course(s) simultaneously with the course to which the former is a prerequisite (if both courses are offered in the same semester and not in conflict), or immediately in the next semester.
    2. To a student who is graduating within one year from the time of application, and when it is most likely that the student will pass the higher course based on his academic record.
  3. Department of Civil Engineering

    All CE courses except:

    CE 132 and CE 133 provided that the student had previously enrolled and fully attended the prerequisite course and obtained a grade of 5.00 and at least passed one (1) exam.

    CE 161 and CE 162 provided that the student had previously enrolled and fully attended the prerequisite course(s) and that the student is of senior standing at the time of application.

  4. Department of Electrical Engineering

    All EE courses except:

    EE 1 may be waived provided that the student is graduating on the same semester of application and that he/she had previously attended the prerequisite courses.

    EE 158 may be waived provided that the student is graduating on the same semester of application and that he/she had previously attended the prerequisite course, EE 151 (for electronics/computer engineering majors only).

    EE 180 and EE 181 may be waived provided that the student is graduating on the same semester of application.

  5. Department of Industrial Engineering

    All IE courses may be waived except for IE 32 and IE 142.

    Addendum on highly meritorious cases that may be waived:

    1. To a student who has previously enrolled and fully attended a course/courses.
      1. The waived subject and the prerequisite has to be simultaneously taken
      2. "Or immediately in the next semester" will not apply since the critical path will still be adversely affected and waiver on a waiver is not allowed since it will still NOT permit the student to graduate on time
    2. To a student who is graduating within one year [or the student can show that inability to take the course will adversely affect his/her plan of coursework and date of graduation.]**
      1. Only for those graduating students under regular loading based on the IE course semester number of units.
      2. ... most likely that the student will pass the higher course based on his academic record.  Previous semester (not including Summer) must be GOOD or WARNING status only and its prerequisite must be taken simultaneously.

     **Statement enclosed in bracket were added and approved by the CEAT Faculty in its meeting on April 8, 2010.

     

  6. Department of Engineering Science

1. Prerequisite to the following courses cannot be waived because these courses require a solid understanding of fundamental mathematics and/or physics concepts.

ENSC 10a (Engineering Graphics I)

ENSC 11 (Statics of Rigid Bodies)

ENSC 12 (Dynamics of Rigid Bodies)

ENSC 13 (Strength of Materials)

ENSC 14 (Basic Thermodynamics)

ENSC 14a (Engineering Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer)

ENSC 21 (Mathematical Methods in Engineering)

2. Prerequisite to the following courses may be waived provided that the student is graduating within one year from the time of application and that the student had previously attended at least 80% of the class sessions in the prerequisite course/s as certified by the faculty-in-charge in the prerequisite course/s.

ENSC 10b (Engineering Graphics II)

ENSC 15 (Fundamentals of Heat Transfer)

ENSC 16 (Fluid Mechanics)

ENSC 16b (Fluid Mechanics Laboratory)

ENSC 18 (Materials of Engineering)

ENSC 26 (Computer Applications in Engineering)

     
     It is the College policy to disapprove the application of waiver of prerequisite(s) under the following conditions:

  1. For any course in which a student failed the prerequisite where a waiver was previously granted and the prerequisite has not yet been passed (Waiver on a waiver is not allowed)
  2. For courses with two or more prerequisites,
    1. if a student failed in at least two prerequisites;
    2. if a student failed in prerequisite A and passed prerequisite B in which a waiver was previously granted and the prerequisite D to this course (B) has not yet passed.
