To learn more, please read:   Pre/Co-Requisite Challenge for Field Courses.

To challenge the Pre/Corequisite Requirement

All students without the pre/corequisite MUST meet with or email Kristen Sneddon ( to discuss challenging the pre/corequisite and registering for the class. If taking the challenge quiz is the best option, it is encouraged that the student review the Topics of Study packet and meet with a geology tutor in order to be introduced to some essential background material for successful completion of the course. The student should have a basic understanding of (1) Rocks and the Rock Cycle, (2) Plate Tectonics, and (3) Geologic Time. Quiz results will be emailed and an additional meeting scheduled if needed.
