General Rules to Clear Prerequisites

Prerequisites can be met by different criteria depending on each student's history. Transcripts or academic records show a student has passed the 'prerequisite' successfully, thus demonstrating a satisfactory level of competence.

For some courses, such as world languages, a 'prerequisite' may be documented by a portfolio, a performance, or a previously identified type of evidence to satisfy the requirement. In these cases, there may be an exception to submitting a transcript or other academic record.

See below to find where you fit in depending on your records.
