The only field Curricular Reps may edit on this tab is the Requirement Group within Class Association Requisites (also known as section-level requisites).

Class Association Requisites Field Descriptions
Associated Class Unique number assigned to an enrollment package. Discussions, labs, and lectures that are packaged together have unique Associated Class numbers. Associated Class number ‘9999’ is a wildcard.
Also Use Catalog Requisite If ‘checked’, enrollment engine will enforce both the Catalog Requisite AND the Class Association (i.e., section-level) requisite. These two requisites will work together. If ‘unchecked’, enrollment engine will enforce only requisites placed at the Class Association level; Curricular Representatives may not uncheck this.
Requirement Group Requirement group number to be enforced through the enrollment engine. Academic requirements (such as prior coursework) may generally only be enforced via the catalog requisite rather than the section-level requisite; the primary exceptions are topics courses.
