Alternatives to Testing for Math, English, and Foreign Language and Prerequisite Challenges

Some classes at SBCC have prerequisites that you must meet prior to enrolling, such as English/math assessment or a beginning language level. If you have not taken the required prerequisite at SBCC but you have successfully completed an equivalent course (with a grade of "C" or better) at an external institution (ie. other college or high school, etc), or have approved test scores (AP or SAT) or credentials, you may meet an alternative to testing.

Students will not be allowed to temporarily enroll in any summer classes until the prerequisite and/or corequisite coursework is completed.
