Prerequisite Process

Many courses have prerequisite courses that must be completed and passed prior to enrollment. Prerequisites are listed in the course description in eServices. Be sure you've met the prerequisites for a course before enrolling.

            • You will need to provide proof of passing the prerequisite course the first day of class with the exception of Mathematics and English courses.
            • Students enrolling in any Mathematics or English course must have the prerequisite verified PRIOR TO ENROLLING.


As part of a new prerequisite checking process, students enrolling in any MATH or ENGLISH course must have their prerequisite verified prior to enrollment effective with spring 2015 registration.


            1. Students who have taken and passed the prerequisite course at a Los Rios College (ARC, CRC, FLC, or SCC).   → YOU ARE READY TO REGISTER
            2. Students who have assessed into MATH or ENGLISH course by taking an assessment test at Los Rios College.  → YOU ARE READY TO REGISTER
            3. If you are currently enrolled in one of the Los Rios prerequisite courses. → CAUTION! YOU ARE OK TO REGISTER. *You must earn a C or better or you will be dropped from the higher level course.
            4. Prerequisites are not automatic for students who have taken a course outside of the Los Rios Community College District. Note: Non-Los Rios coursework that is in progress will not be accepted as proof of meeting a prerequisite.
