Computer Skills Prerequisites (CSP)

Some courses offered by the Robinson College of Business require any student who enrolls in that course to be proficient with certain computer skills. For a complete description of CSP requirements, please refer to the “J. Mack Robinson College of Business” chapter of this catalog (see section 7000).


A corequisite identifies another course or courses that should be taken concurrently with the listed course. A student who enrolls in a listed course with corequisites must also enroll in those corequisite courses. A student who has previously completed a corequisite course may not need to repeat it; he or she should consult with an academic adviser before registering to determine specific requirements.

Course Credit Hours

The total semester hours of credit for each course are shown in parentheses immediately following the course title.


A prerequisite identifies a course or other requirements that a student must have completed successfully before enrolling in the listed course. Any student who has not met prerequisites for a course may be administratively withdrawn from that course at the discretion of the instructor. It is the policy of some university departments to withdraw automatically any student who enrolls in a course without first meeting its prerequisites.
