Finding Prerequisites and Co-requisites

It is important to understand the prerequisites and co-requisites for the courses you need to take for your major.

Prerequisites and co-requisites are listed in the catalog course description and on the Academic Plan of Study.

General Education and the Charlotte Core

The UNC Charlotte faculty created the Charlotte Core General Education set of courses to ensure students graduate with specific workforce core skills in effective communication, critical thinking, collaboration with diverse groups of people and in data analysis. These competencies also help students succeed in college and in daily life. Courses are split into Foundational courses and Themed courses.

Starting Fall 2023 all students will be required to complete ten (10) courses (31-32 credits total).
