Waiving Prerequisites

Please note that there are prerequisites for many of our courses. Certain prerequisites may be waived if the student has successfully completed a similar course outside the Los Angeles Community College District or has appropriate professional filmmaking or television experience and has filed a Pre/Co-requisite Challenge Petition with the supporting documentation (the transcript and photocopy of course descriptions from the college catalog) by the first week of the semester. All petitions are reviewed by a faculty committee and the decisions are phoned or emailed to the prospective students. Petition forms are available (as a Word or PDF)  HERE .
