Prerequisite Information


What are Prerequisites?

Prerequisites are specific course(s) or levels of preparation required to complete before enrolling in a course.

Prerequisite clearance is not automatic when you send official transcripts from an institution outside of LACC to our Admissions Office.

You can simply provide a counselor a copy of an unofficial transcript verifying your name, the regionally accredited college, the course, and the grade earned for review.

High School, Foreign Coursework, & External Exams:

  • We do not use high school coursework to clear college-level prerequisites (except for Chemistry 101 per the department).
  • We can use college coursework completed at appropriate foreign institutions to clear prerequisites.
  • We can use external exams (e.g., AP, IB, CLEP) with a minimum passing score deemed equivalent to clear prerequisites (e.g., an AP English Language & Composition score of 3, 4, or 5 would be approved for our courses requiring English 101 as a prerequisite).

To request a prerequisite clearance:

Email us

Email us at @email and put in the subject line "Your Name - Student ID# - the LACC course(s) you intend to take." Please attach a copy of your transcript (unofficial is acceptable) that clearly shows the college name, your name, the course title, the term taken, and the final grade received. A counselor will evaluate if your coursework meets the stated pre- or corequisite of our LACC course(s) and will clear you accordingly
