Prerequisite Clearance

Prerequisite clearances using credits from another college is not automatic.  Students must make the request for clearance with each specific class (possibly each term).

We will grant approval for enrollment into courses with prerequisites for students who present proof of eligibility.

  • Official or unofficial transcripts from previous colleges are accepted as proof, as long as they provide the following:
    • college/university name
    • student's name
    • course and grade (without manipulation on the transcript )
  • Obtaining a Prerequisite Clearance:
    • Preferred: Meet with an advisor at the Prerequisite Office in L building with documents as listed above (sign-in on computer).
    • Alternative: If unable to meet in person, you may submit a request online. To do so, you must submit 2 parts:
      1. Part 1: Complete the Prerequisite Clearance Request form online (enter your PCC email found in LancerPoint).
      2. Part 2: Check your PCC email for our reply email (sent immediately).  You must then reply to our email and attach the documents listed above.  Once we recieve your documents, your request will be reviewed within 2 business days (M-F, excluding holidays). If Part 2 is not received within 2 weeks, your request will be discarded. 
    • Prerequisite clearances are only valid for:
      1. One term - if the class does not have a Math, English, Chemistry, or Language requirement (example: Psyc 2 has a Psyc 1 prereq requirement).  If you do not enroll in the class in the term requested, you must request for the prereq clearance again the following term.
      2. Permanently - if the class has a Math, English, Chemistry, or Language requirement (example: Phys 1A has a Math 5A prereq requirement)
