A prerequisite is a course or skill level that gives you the background necessary to succeed in another course or
program. Prerequisite verification means providing proof that you’ve completed the prerequisite for the course
in which you’re registered. It is required by the Mathematics Department to keep your place in the class.
If you are enrolled in a course (or on the official waiting list) and have completed the required prerequisite(s) at
a Los Rios District College in the time period since 2003, this information is available to instructors, and you do
not need to submit any documentation. All other students must provide written documentation, and this can be
done in two ways:
1) Submitting an official or unofficial academic record (containing your printed name) from SCC, ARC, CRC,
FLC, or other college in the greater Sacramento area (UCD, CSUS, Butte, Delta, Sierra, Solano, or Yuba
College), which indicates you've completed the required prerequisite course(s) (or the equivalent) with a "C" or
2) Submitting the result of an assessment test taken at SCC, CRC, or FLC that places you in the course (the
result of the self-assessment test offered at ARC is not acceptable). If you’ve taken the SCC assessment test in
the past 3 years and lost your printout, you can get a new one. The placements are good for three years from the
date of the test.
I will check these documents and return them the following class session.
If you completed your prerequisite course at a college outside the greater Sacramento area, you must file a
Prerequisite Challenge form with the Mathematics Department (Main Campus, South Gym 220) and submit a
copy of your academic record for evaluation.
Computerized assessment tests are offered at the SCC campus on a drop-in basis at the Assessment Center in
Student Services 121. You will need to show your Los Rios ID card.
Note: The following are not acceptable for prerequisite verification:
1) A high school transcript (except to show you completed Geometry).
2) A counselor's recommendation.
3) An academic record showing that you were previously enrolled in the course.
4) The results of an assessment test not taken at Los Rios District campus or outreach center.
