Academic Counseling

Prerequisite Information

What are Prerequisites?

Prerequisites are specific course(s) or levels of preparation required to complete before enrolling in a course. 

Prerequisite clearance is not automatic when you send official transcripts completed at an institution outside of LACC to our Admissions Office. You can simply provide a counselor a copy of an unofficial transcript verifying your name, the accredited college, the course, and the grade earned.

High School & Foreign Language Coursework:

We do not use high school coursework to clear college-level prerequisites (except for Chemistry 101 per the department). We accept external exams (e.g., AP, IB, CLEP) with an appropriate passing score to clear prerequisites.

Email us:

Email us at prereqs@lacitycollege.edu and put in the subject line "Your Name - Student ID# - the LACC course(s) you intend to take". Please attach a copy of your transcript (unofficial is acceptable) that clearly shows the college name, your name, the course title, the term taken, and the final grade received.
