Requisite Clearance

 

About Requisite Clearance

All prerequisites will be strictly enforced by MyCerritos! You will NOT be able to enroll for any course that has a prerequisite without demonstrating you have met the prerequisite prior to enrolling.

Students currently enrolled in a prerequisite course at Cerritos College will be allowed to enroll into the next course in the sequence. For example, students enrolled in ENGL 52 for fall may enroll in ENGL 100 for spring. However, it is the student's responsibility to verify they have passed the prerequisite course. If a passing grade is not received, the student will be dropped some time during the semester.

Automated prerequisite checking will stop students from enrolling in a class or getting on the waiting list if a prerequisite has not been met. Prerequisites are checked at the time of enrollment (Auto-enroll and Instructor adds). Prerequisites are not checked when classes are added to the shopping cart, but are enforced before enrollment or waitlist additions.

To avoid being denied enrollment, students should complete the Cerritos College placement tests or submit transcripts if prerequisite coursework was completed at another instititution. Download the Requisite Clearance Request FormPDF document.
