Question BLS/ACLS Requirements for Electives Eligibility

Hi guys
some universities require BLS certification or ACLS certification and I don't have that (for electives) . Is it a necessary requirement even if it's on their website or can it be overlooked?
Thanks.

It won't be overlooked, you have to do them if it's mentioned in the website.

No I think he just meant live versus getting certified on the internet through the AHA website.
