Pg. 25 of your Advising Manual
Helpful Definitions
• MyNEVADA may not allow you to enroll in certain classes because they require
prerequisites or co-requisites:
•
•
•
•
PREREQUISITE: a class that must be completed prior to enrolling in a subsequent class
• Ex. IS 101 is a prerequisite for ECON 261R
CO-REQUISITE: a course that is required to be taken simultaneously with another course
• Ex. MATH 126 is a co-requisite for ECON 102
Although not all upper division courses have prerequisites, freshmen are encouraged to
take 100 & 200 level classes
Upper division (300-400 level classes) business classes have a similar prerequisite:
Students must be declared business majors or minors before they can enroll
• You may have a class that has a LEC and a DIS section to the course. (E.g. Math 126):
•
•
•
LEC: is the large class where the professor lectures and presents all the relevant
information for the day.
DIS: is a small group section to the course where you discuss the information presented
in the LEC section, do quizzes, turn in homework, ask questions, etc.
Attendance is mandatory for both components of the course.

BUS 101 Student Testimonials
“BUS 101 was a very good class for me… it opened my eyes to some
aspects of business I never thought of and informed me on all the
different majors the College of Business has to offer. I think the class is
very supportive…”
“I already knew that I would get my degree in marketing, but the
presentations in the class helped me get some insight into the kind of
people I would be dealing with in my future.”
“I would always leave so inspired from the speakers.”
“Overall, I recommend this course for anyone who is interested in a
business major or is undecided.”
