All prerequisites, co-requisites and limitations on enrollment as stated in the course descriptions of the college catalog will be strictly enforced at the time of a student's registration.
To Clear Prerequisites or Co-requisites
- Please visit the Forms and Documents page, choose the Proof of Prerequisites or Corequisites link, fill out the webform and upload the form with attached unofficial transcripts or other supporting documentation. Requests will be processed in approximately 1-3 business days. Please watch the YouTube videos on the Forms and Documents page for detailed instructions on submitting forms.
- Supporting documentation to clear prerequisites may include: qualifying Advanced Placement (AP) Test Scores, College level courses, some high school credit, qualifying test scores: SAT, ACT, EAP, etc., and certain licenses and certifications.
- Students who believe they have met a prerequisite at another institution are strongly advised to have all official transcripts of prior college work and other documentation on file and evaluated well in advance of registration. This will minimize registration delays.
- Students may not bring an unofficial copy of prior college transcripts to the counseling office for processing because the process is completely online.
If you have not completed a class or qualifying test score for the prerequisite you do have the option of filling out a Petition to Challenge to test out of the prerequisite. The Admissions Office has more information on the process. If you are not sure you can call Admissions (619-388-7844) or Counseling (619-388-7840) for help.
Please send official transcripts and test scores to email@example.com
