Can I skip a prerequisite?

296 views   |   0   0   |   Last updated on Jun 19, 2018    Prerequisites

If you are interested in being exempted from a Math or Composition prerequisite, you must present a grade report or transcript for previously earned college credits that is relevant to the course that you want to enter. 

If you are interested in starting in a Math or Composition course with a placement prerequisite, you need to present a copy of an ACT score of 20 or higher or SAT score of 480 for the Reading/Writing portion or 520 for the Math portion to gain an exemption. 

In other subject areas or disciplines, the instructor would be the person you would need to talk with about providing an exemption for a prerequisite, as the instructors are the content specialists of their courses and would know after talking with you if you are equipped to enter into an advanced subject area.

Can I repeat a class?

100 views   |   0   0   |   Last updated on Jun 19, 2018    Records & Registration

Students may repeat a course twice. In accordance with this policy, a student may be denied enrollment in a class based on lack of academic progress and/or proof of an ability to benefit from the course. Some courses are approved to be taken more than two times (for example, designated music and physical education courses). The repeat will go into effect when the allowable number of repeats for these courses has been exceeded. Those seeking an exception to the college policy must contact the dean of Enrollment Services. The most recent grade (the repeated grade) received will be computed into the cumulative grade point average. The repeated grade will be designated by an “R.” All previous attempts will remain on the transcript, but will not be included in the cumulative grade point average.
