A prerequisite is a requirement that must be met before you can enroll in certain courses.
How do I find Prerequisites?
Prerequisites are listed in the course descriptions in the catalog and/or in the current schedule.
How do I meet the Prerequisite requirement?
You can meet a prerequisite with previous college coursework or one of the following test scores.
1. Previous College Coursework
Prior college level credit earned from a regionally accredited university or college completed with a grade of "C-" or higher.
Upload your transcript and include your name, student number (S#), and the course(s) you wish to register for. Your request may take up to 5 business days, please plan ahead.
You may meet with an Advisor at either the Lakewood or Arvada campus to discuss your academic plan and the prerequisites you will need. Bring a copy of your transcript(s).
In order to have your courses transferred into Red Rocks, you must send an official transcript to our Records Department.
