Statistics for the Social Sciences Prerequisite Course


The prerequisite courses offered through Kent School of Social Work, Department of Continuing Education, are specifically designed to meet your prerequisite needs; thus each course is not the same as a typical University of Louisville course.

The University of Louisville’s Kent School of Social Work has developed online, self-guided prerequisite courses in Human Biology, Research Methods and Statistics.  Each course is pass/fail. A passing grade is 70% or higher on the final test. The cost of a prerequisite course is $225.00.

For More information regarding the structure of this course, please view our 'Frequently asked questions' Document Click here to open Prerequisite FAQ.pdf


Typical enrollment time is 5-7 business days for your registration to be fully processed as it will require the Continuing Education Director to manually enroll you in the Blackboard course.  



*Please note: Non-University of Louisville students should obtain prior approval from their respective schools before enrolling.  An electronic Certificate of Completion will be sent to you to be shared with the appropriate person at your University as verification of meeting their requirement.*


For non-UofL students your enrollment process is slightly different. After receiving your online registration form, a temporary University of Louisville account will be created, which is required to access the course in Blackboard. You will receive another email from service account that will include instructions on how to access and log into Blackboard to access the course, complete the course, and what to do after you’ve completed the course.
