Are you currently enrolled in the prerequisite course at another college? Maybe you have completed the prerequisite course at another college with a grade of C or better and have yet to submit an official transcript? Do not complete a prerequisite appeal. Instead, submit a "Prerequisite Provisional", which will quickly lift the registration block pending you provide an official transcript. Go to our Counseling Forms webpage to access the Prerequisite Provisional form.
What is a Prerequisite?
A prerequisite is a course that must be completed with a grade of "C" or better before enrolling in a more advanced course. You have the right to challenge a prerequisite. You have the responsibility to provide documentation to support your appeal.
Steps To Challenge a Prerequisite
Reason to challenge a prerequisite: You have documented knowledge and abilities despite not completing the prerequisite course, the prerequisite has not been made reasonably available, the prerequisite is discriminatory or is being applied in a disriminatory manner.
If any of the above reasons apply to you, continue with the following steps:
2. Once you submit the prerequisite appeal, you will receive a provisional clearance to enroll in the desired course while we process your appeal. You must submit the appeal by the scheduled deadline to be given a provisional.
3. You will be contacted via email once a decision has been made. If your appeal was denied, you will be administratively dropped from the course. The appeal review process takes up to 5 business days.
