Prerequisite Policy

Prerequisite documentation may include unofficial transcripts, student progress reports, or test scores that are less than five years old. Online placement testing may be available for courses with an English and/or Math prerequisite. For placement testing information, please visit the Placement Testing webpage.

The block will be removed upon receiving valid prerequisite documentation. Students that fail to submit proper prerequisite documents by 12:00 p.m. (CST) on the 1st Friday of the session will be dropped from their prerequisite class(es) and will receive a full refunded.
