  • Assessment: Assessment results may satisfy some English, ESL and/or math prerequisites and/or corequisites. Scores from assessment tests taken at other colleges/universities may be accepted. Please refer to Assessment for options and details
  • Completed SBCC Courses: Students who have completed a prerequisite or corequisite course at Santa Barbara City College and received a grade of "C" or better will be permitted to enroll in the subsequent course requiring the prerequisite. 
  • External Coursework Completed: Students must complete a Prerequisite Verification Form A requesting consideration of coursework completed at other institutions as satisfaction of prerequisites and then register for the advanced course. Official transcripts must be on file or sent from sending institution to the SBCC Admissions & Records.   
  • Other Options: In some cases prerequisites may be satisfied through means other than coursework, i.e., a student who is already fluent in a foreign language but doesn't have any foreign language coursework.  In such cases students must file a Prerequisite Verification Form B.
