Additional information about program's GPA requirements
Program will use the highest grade achieved when calculating the pre-requisite GPA, if a course was repeated.  If a higher grade is earned in a higher level course than the minimum pre-requisite requirement, if the course still meets the topic requirement, the higher grade may be substituted for for the pre-requisite requirement.

A single course cannot be used to satisfy multiple pre-requisite requirements.

A minimum GPA of 2.0 must be achieved for any course used to satisfy a pre-requisite requirement.
