A prerequisite is a condition of enrollment that a student is required to meet in order to demonstrate readiness for enrolling in a course or educational program. Co-requisites are courses that a student is required to take simultaneously in order to enroll in another course. A recommended preparation is an advisory for a course that a student is advised, but not required, to take in conjunction with, or prior to, a course or program. Colleges shall ensure that course prerequisites and co-requisites are properly validated pursuant to Title 5 and El Camino College District Administrative Procedure 4260.

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.
