PLEASE CHECK YOUR CLASSES CAREFULLY! Prerequisites/Co-requisites are strictly enforced at Los Angeles Trade-Technical College. Courses taken out-of-state must be reviewed by the department chair for approval - please submit course descriptions and official transcripts to the Assessment Center located in Student Support Center, D3-01.
Many courses listed in the class schedule will indicate suggested prerequisite, co-requisite/concurrent enrollment or recommended preparation/advisory listed after the name of the course. These recommendations were made after careful consideration by the faculty of that department. The Los Angeles Community College District has adopted a policy based upon a model developed by the State Chancellor’s Task Force in conjunction with the State Academic Senate and Chief Instructional Officers and based upon Title V Article 2.5 Section 55200 and Article 4 Section 55530 of the Matriculation Regulations. In other words, your success is our primary goal.
- A prerequisite is a condition that a student has to meet prior to enrolling in the class. Completion of the prerequisite demonstrates that you are ready and able to succeed in the course you want to take. A prerequisite is usually either another course, or a specific test score on a standardized test.
- Co-requisite is a course that must be taken at the same time as the course you want to take.
- Advisory or recommended preparation means that you are advised, but not required, to have taken the course(s) or met the test scores before enrolling in the class.
