Prerequisite Challenge Policy

Prerequisite Challenge Policy

Prerequisite means the preparation or previous course work considered necessary for success in the course. The College requires students to complete prerequisites as pre-enrollment preparation.

Prerequisites, which are listed in the College Catalog, include:

  1. Courses for which specific prerequisites have been established,
  2. Sequential course work in a degree applicable program, and
  3. Courses in which an equivalent prerequisite exists at a four-year transfer college or university. 

Questions about prerequisites are best resolved with a counselor or instructor prior to the first day of class.
