I am not currently in Improv 401, but I've been noticing a lot of classes that have the "Successful Completion..." prerequisite. I also know that a lot of students take multiple 401s before they are accepted into Advanced Study. Does being accepted into Advanced Study constitute successful completion, or does simply completing one 401 suffice? I suppose a more recent example would have been applying for the Chris Gethard Openings elective.
Thanks so much!
Successful completion of Improv 401 means you attended at least six sessions of class, saw two shows, and your teacher thinks you have a basic understanding of the material covered in the course. You'll receive an email from the registrar with some notes from your teacher that lets you know whether you have successfully completed the course. Although generally you'll know if you aren't going to successfully complete the course -- either because you missed too many classes, didn't see two shows, or your teacher has talked to you about any concerns they have with your readiness for Improv 401.
Successfully completing Improv 401 is different from applying to the advanced study program.
Think of it like graduating from college (successfully completing Improv 401) and then applying to graduate school (applying to Advanced Study) which is a separate process you can do after you've graduated college.
