Process for Clearing Prerequisites - Counseling Department

Happy Graduates!

To Clear a Sequential Class (demonstrate that prerequisites have been met)

  1. The student meets with a  counselor during drop-in counselinghours and provides documentation indicating completed requirements for the prerequisite (ex, transcript, course description, syllabus).

  2. In most cases, the counselor can evaluate whether the prerequisite requirements have/have not been met and will clear the student for enrollment if warranted.

  3. If unable to determine whether requirements are met, or in cases where the student disagrees with the counselor’s determination, the counselor will refer the student to the appropriate Division Dean.

  4. The Division Dean reviews student rationale/work/ability and consults with subject faculty to make a determination.  The Division notifies the student and clears the student for enrollment if warranted.
