Steps for the Prerequisite Clearance Process
- If a student believes a course taken at another college or university meets the prerequisite for an El Camino College course in which he/she wishes to enroll, the student may submit a Prerequisite Clearance Form and appropriate documentation for review.
- To submit a Prerequisite Clearance Form, please complete the the form: https://elcamino.formstack.com/workflows/prerequisite_clearance_form
- Make sure that all attachments have your identifying information - name, student ID number, etc. Clearances with incomplete documents will be delayed and/or denied.
- The hours of operation for the online prerequisite clearance processing are Monday through Thursday, 8:00am to 4:00pm and Fridays 9:00am to 1:00pm. Emails received after hours will be reviewed the next business day. Allow 3-5 business days for processing online clearance requests.
