Enforcement of Recommended Preparation and Prerequisite, Concurrent, or Co-requisite courses

Beginning with course registration in Fall 2019, the College of Health and Human Development and the Department of Health Policy and Administration will implement automatic enforcement of prerequisite courses.

Requests for exceptions to prerequisite requirements are to be submitted in writing using the form found on this page. Supporting documentation should be submitted as requested. Any questions or problems regarding prerequisite requirements or exceptions can be discussed with the Academic Adviser in the Department of Health Policy and Administration, Dr. Anita Yuskauskas, [email protected]

Decisions on prerequisites for Health Policy and Administration courses can be found within the HPA University Bulletin. For easy reference, the HPA prerequisites can be found in an Excel document
