Checking Course Prerequisites & Requirements
A Schedule of Classes (SOC) is an official campus publication that is available before each semester or term.
What to use the Schedule of Classes for
Use the Schedule of Classes to check for course prerequisites*, corequisites, special comments and recommended preparation. You can also view course reference numbers, instructors, times, locations, etc. The SOC also contains important dates, policies and other details that affect your academic status and the registration process.
*Some campuses also display their prerequisites on Check Class Availability.
What you shouldn't use the Schedule of Classes for
Most Schedule of Classes have a single publication date with class information being accurate only as of that "print" date. Use the Check Class Availability and MyUH Search for Classes for the most up-to-date class information including added classes, cancelled classes, time and instructor changes.
Obtaining a Schedule of Classes
Most campuses will have two versions of their Schedule of Classes: Printed & Online.
PRINT: Contact the Student Services, Admissions & Records Office to inquire if a hard copy is available.
ONLINE: Visit the campus web site to access the online version of the SOC (as shown below).
Use either the print or online SOC to look up course prerequisites, corequisites, special comments and recommended preparation for the class you want to register for.
