You should know which courses are mandatory and which aren't when you register for courses...otherwise how did you pick what courses to register in??
It's all in the course calendar but you need to look at the course calendar for the year that you entered the program in. Required courses can change year-to-year, you must meet the required courses that were listed when you entered the program.
This can also be found on your degree audit, but it's good to double-check to make sure there aren't any discrepancies, because sometimes the degree audit doesn't totally agree with the course calendar. If that's the case then you need to bring it to the attention of an advisor in your faculty.
