Prerequisite Courses

What is a Prerequisite Course?

Some courses in Grades 10, 11, and 12 may have prerequisites for enrollment. A prerequisite course is required to make sure you have the knowledge and experience of the fundamentals to allow you to complete and succeed in a subsequent course.

A prerequisite is usually a course in the same subject but at a lower level – for example, ENG4U (English, Grade 12, University Preparation) requires the completion of ENG3U (English, Grade 11, University Preparation).  ENG3U is considered to be the prerequisite for ENG4U.

All prerequisite courses are identified in ministry curriculum policy documents and in our course descriptions. Prerequisites are mandatory for you to enroll in a course and successfully earn an OSSD credit.

Rosedale Prerequisite Policy

Students are responsible for obtaining the necessary prerequisites for a course. Students must submit proof of meeting the necessary requirements before starting a course.
