Prerequisites for a course must be met before the course is taken unless permission to omit the course prerequisite has been approved by the appropriate instructional collegewide Associate Dean (Academic Transfer, Career Technical, or Health Sciences). A student who fails in the first course of a sequence cannot take the succeeding courses before making up the failure. If course prerequisite requirements are not met for a course, a student will be removed from that course. Waiver of placement test scores is not allowed.
