Asked by ChaosCross (2340points) February 17th, 2010

Heard the word thrown around quite alot, never really learned what they are.

Are they some kind of requirement for attending a college?

Required to attend the college in question.

i.e. High school grad, etc.

Proper spelling is requisite.

@robmandu Not true. Plenty of people graduate college and suck at spelling.

I believe that you mean, “What is a college prerequisite?”
This might help:

This term usually is applied to the academic requirements necessary to be accepted into a college program, to take college courses, or a course of study (like a major or minor).

@davidk Perhaps, but requisite is also a word and means what @DrBill said.

No doubt. I can honestly say that I’ve never heard anyone use the term “college requisite.” On the other hand, I’ve certainly heard it used with a different sentence structure. I’m not a native English speaker, so perhaps my experience is limited.

I’m guessing you don’t have it.

requisite = requirement

@tinyfaery, after college doesn’t count here. ;-) It’s requisistes for college… and poor spelling on your application isn’t going to help. Unless, of course, you’re shooting for an athletic scholarship.

Look in the dictionary.

Prerequisites in college are courses that you must take before you enter your major. They usually consist of basic math/ english/ science, etc.

So maybe a requisite is a class you must take in order to graduate college? . . .
Just my guess
