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 for courses completed at an institution outside of LACC. You must 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. We accept external exams (AP, IB, CLEP) with an appropriate passing score to clear prerequisites.
