Prerequisites for CSE Undergraduate Classes

Prerequisites for CSE Undergraduate Classes

Updated March 20th, 2024

Granting exceptions to prerequisites is rare and requires documentation of extenuating circumstances. 

*An assigned letter grade of "D" is considered sufficient for meeting a course prerequisite unless otherwise noted.

*An assigned letter grade of "F", "NP", or an incomplete in a course are NOT considered sufficient for meeting a course prerequisite.

Transfer Courses
  • Students who plan to use a transfer course to meet prerequisites for CSE courses must have a final grade in the transfer course before they can enroll in CSE courses that require the course as a prerequisite.
  • If the transfer course is needed as a prerequisite before it is posted on a student's academic history, the student can submit an EASy request with a copy of the assist.org or UC Articulated agreement or approved petition + an unofficial transcript showing the final grade received.
Non CSE Majors or Graduate Students
  • Non CSE Majors: For courses restricted to certain academic levels or majors, all other students will be allowed as space permits.
  • Graduate Students: Undergraduates will receive priority for undergraduate courses. Graduate student requests to enroll in undergraduate courses will be reviewed at the end of week 1 of the quarter and only after all undergraduate requests have been processed. 
CSE Course Prerequisite Substitution Process

Students may use the following for CSE course prerequisite substitution purposes (no petition required, Enrollment Authorization System (EASy) request may be required if not explicitly listed in the approved course list): 

  • CSE 20 - MATH 109 or MATH 31CH may be used
  • CSE 21 - MATH 184 or MATH 188 or MATH 154 or MATH 158 may be used

If you are using MATH 31CH for a change of major application, you must submit a petition.

CSE Upper Division Prerequisite Policy

Students who would like to request an exception to course prerequisites in CSE Upper-Division courses (except for CSE 100, CSE 101, and CSE 110) may submit this request via the Enrollment Authorization System (EASy). All other requests will be denied without an approved petition

Granting exceptions to CSE Course Prerequisites via EASy in upper-division CSE courses is up to the discretion of the course instructor, and there is no guarantee of approval.

  • If a student’s EASy request for a prerequisite exception is denied by the instructor or not reviewed before the add deadline, the student will not be permitted to enroll in the course

When requesting prerequisite exceptions via EASy for CSE upper-division courses, students must provide a thorough justification for their request and include any supporting documentation, external coursework, or descriptions of extenuating circumstances that support their prerequisite exception request. If not, this request will be returned to you to provide more information.

The faculty review process for prerequisite exceptions may take up to 6 weeks, and this process cannot be “expedited”. All requests will be forwarded for faculty review, but there is no guarantee of approval before the add deadline, even if your request was submitted before the add deadline.

Students will be notified of the outcome of their prerequisite exception EASy request through EASy and via their UCSD email. An approved EASy request for a CSE Prerequisite exception does not guarantee a seat in CSE courses.

Non-CSE Majors: If requesting enrollment in a major restricted CSE course for which you do not meet the prerequisites before the “course clearance” deadline, submit an EASy request that will be first reviewed by the faculty for prerequisites exceptions. 

  • If the prerequisite exception is approved by the faculty, your EASy request will be cleared on the course clearance deadline. 

  • If the prerequisite exception is denied, you will not  be permitted to enroll.

  • Non-CSE Majors requesting exceptions to prerequisites in major-restricted CSE upper-division courses, should plan to submit their first EASy request for prerequisite exceptions at the start of the enrollment to allow as much time as possible for faculty to review the prerequisite exception request.
