What is Corequisite?

Congratulations! You are about to enroll in our corequisite transitional course to complete UCA’s requirement. You may be curious as to how corequisite courses work. Here is some information.

What Is Corequisite?

The Department of Student Transitions defines corequisite as two courses that are designed to be taken together in the same semester.  Students are supported in their college-level, credit-bearing course by varying approaches such as: just-in-time remediation, skills review, or coordinated curriculum. 

How Does It Work?

Students in the corequisite transitional course will be assigned readings, homework, tests, and assignments in the college-level course. They will receive additional instruction and support in the corequisite transitional course that will help them master the material in the college-level course. 

For example, a student may learn about the quadratic formula in College Algebra and then use time within the Foundations of College Algebra to review simplification of radical expressions.

Math Corequisite Transitional Courses

Depending on which college-level math course you need for your degree plan, you will enroll in either UNIV 0390: Foundations of College Algebra or UNIV 0360: Foundations of Quantitative Literacy and the corresponding college-level  math course.

For example:


English or Reading Corequisite Transitional Courses

If you have a reading or English transitional need, you will enroll in UNIV 0370: Foundations of Literacy and the corresponding general education college-level course.

For example:

How Do I Know I Have Completed My Transitional Requirement?
