All prerequisites will be enforced at the time of registration.
There are two ways to get prerequisite holds cleared:
1) Complete the Transcript Evaluation Request process, click HERE. Prerequisite holds will be cleared based on the evaluation results. NOTE: The transcript evaluation process involves the evaluation of all courses toward
all requirements, not just the clearance of prerequisite holds.
2) If you are not seeking a full transcript evaluation, complete a Prerequisite Challenge
Form for individual courses.
- Begin by checking below to see if any classes that you plan on signing up for have prerequisites or corequisites (when classes may be completed concurrently).
- If a class has a prerequisite and you fulfilled it with a final grade of "C" or better through SBCC, or are in progress with it at SBCC, your registration will not be blocked.
- If you fulfilled the prerequisite at another college, then you must complete a Prerequisite Challenge Form A
- If you fulfilled the prerequisite due to a credential (i.e. CPC, CCS, RN, etc.), then you must also complete a Prerequisite Challenge Form A
- IMPORTANT: Official transcripts are now required for all prerequisite challenges based on coursework.
