A prerequisite is a requirement that a student must complete in order to enroll in a course. Prerequisites include courses, placement test results and other criteria established by faculty to ensure a student has adequate preparation to be academically successful in a course. The college catalog, the semester course schedule and eServices indicate course prerequisites. EServices does not enforce prerequisites for most classes, but students are responsible for understanding and adhering to prerequisite requirements for all classes. For mathematics courses, prerequisites must have been completed within 24 months before the date the course begins.
Students who register for a course for which they have not met the prerequisite requirements may be removed from that class and receive no refund.
Students may apply for a Waiver of Course Prerequisite, available from the Advising and Counseling Department. The appropriate division administrator approves or denies the request based on individual discipline or program criteria.
