Prerequisites/Corequisites Policy


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.

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 well in advance of registration. This will minimize registration delays.

To Clear Prerequisites or Co-requisites

  • Students may bring an unofficial copy of prior college transcripts to the counseling office for advising, or
  • Students may fax unofficial copies of transcripts to San Diego Community College District Student Services Office at (619) 388-6946. Be sure to include your name, your CSID number, the class you are attempting to register for and a phone number on your cover sheet. Prerequisite requests will be processed within a 24-hour period.
  • Students may clear prerequisites if they have Advanced Placement (AP) Credit or College level credit for English or Math; SAT scores of 500 or above in English or, 560 or above in Math; ACT English score of 22, Math score of 23 or higher; EAP College Level designation; EPT score of 151 for English; ELM score of 50 for Math.
