Universities

Humboldt State University

What sets HSU apart from other universities? In a word, innovation .

Innovation begins with the way we approach the teacher-student relationship. Many colleges boast prestigious, but distant, faculty members. Our students actually know their world-renowned professors. In addition to being leaders in the sciences and humanities, HSU professors are commited to mentoring their students by including them in all kinds of experiments, lab research, and field work.

At Humboldt State, learning isn't limited to sitting in a classroom and taking notes. Our students take that knowledge and apply it in the real world by doing their own seismic readings, photography, wildlife studies, social work and more. Why is this important? Because success in the job market, whether you wind up in business, zoology or any field in between, requires strong entrepreneurial and critical thinking skills.

Our emphasis on combining classroom learning with hands-on experience, will help you gain those critical skills. It's an innovative approach to education that yields results. It's also something rarely found at an undergraduate school.

Who Said College Can't Be Fun?

Amy, along with professors from the physics, biology and music departments, shows us that in order to get the true Humboldt experience, you've got to mix fun with your education.

A Better World Starts in the Redwoods

Humboldt students are among the brightest and most unique students anywhere — and they've got a penchant for making the world a better place. Alex, Crystal and Saqib talk about how coming to Humboldt has changed their lives.

The Freshman Advantage

Humboldt State has something completely unique for Freshmen students: Freshmen Interest Groups (or FIGs) that will have you connecting with others who share your passions — from art, music and performance to social activism and outdoor adventures. Who knew surfing and camping were recommended freshmen activities?

Loving Humboldt's Unique Setting

Water. It's something close to the heart of Humboldt State. Whether it's the rain that keeps the redwood forest so lush or the vast Pacific our Oceanography students explore using their own research vessel, HSU students can't get enough of the H 2 0.

Prerequisites

UNDERSTANDING PREREQUISITES
It is the intent of the College of the Redwoods to direct students into courses in which they can achieve academic success. It is in your best interest to complete the prerequisite for a class in which you intend to enroll. Successfully completing the pre-requisite [with a grade of "C" or better] increases your probability for success. It is important for you to understand what a prerequisite is.

PREREQUISITE
A prerequisite is a course you must take or preparation you must have before enrolling in another course. A prerequisite provides you with a set of skills or knowledge. Without these skills you are highly unlikely to succeed in the next course. You will not be permitted to enroll in courses and programs without meeting the appropriate prerequisite.
Example: completing MATH 380 with a 'C" grade or better is a prerequisite to enroll in MATH 120.

COREQUISITE
A corequisite is a course that you are required to take at the same time in order to enroll in another course. A corequisite provides a set of skills or a body of knowledge that you must acquire through concurrent enrollment in another course. Without these skills you are highly unlikely to succeed. If a course requires a "corequisite", you must enroll in both courses at the same time.

ENGLISH AND MATH PREREQUISITES
You may enroll in any course for which you can meet the necessary prerequisites. If you cannot provide verification for having completed a prerequisite then you will not be able to sign up for the intended class. If you do not pass a prerequisite then you will be dropped from the course and your enrollment fees refunded. You can verify that you have met the stated prerequisite in a variety of ways. For example, by completing the prerequisite at CR, an equivalent prerequisite at another college, and/or obtaining appropriate placement results. If you are not sure whether you have met a prerequisite, meet with an advisor or counselor before registration. This is even more important if you completed the prerequisite at another college.
NOTE: If you are enrolling in a course that is EITHER Math, English or has a prerequisite that was not met at CR but at another college, you will need to have your official transcripts evaluated by a counselor or advisor. Call 707.476. 4106 for assistance.

PREREQUISITE CHALLENGE
Students may challenge the prerequisite policy under certain conditions. Please print, sign, and bring this document to the appropriate department for their consideration of your request. Prerequisite Challenge Form
