Home Admissions Admissions Office Prerequisite Process Information

Many courses have prerequisite courses that must be completed and passed before enrollment. Prerequisites are listed in the course description in eServices. Be sure you've met the prerequisites for a course before enrolling.

If you need to provide proof of passing the prerequisite requirement for a course:

  • Mathematics, Statistics, and English courses please review our instructions and links below.
  • All other subjects consult a counselor for more information.

Automated English and Math Prerequisite Checking

As part of a new prerequisite checking process, students enrolling in any math or English course must have their prerequisite verified before enrollment effective with spring 2015 registration.

Valid Prerequisites

  1. If you have taken and passed the prerequisite course at a Los Rios College (ARC, CRC, FLC, or SCC), you are ready to register.
  2. If you have placed into a math or English course by taking a placement test at Los Rios College, you are ready to register.
  3. If you are currently enrolled in one of the Los Rios prerequisite courses, you are okay to register. However, you must earn a C or better, or you will be dropped from the higher level course.
  4. Prerequisites are not automatic for students who have taken a course outside of the Los Rios Community College District. Note: Non-Los Rios coursework that is in progress will not be accepted as proof of meeting a prerequisite.

a. Only the course on the pre-approved list will be automatically approved by the Admissions staff.
