Prerequisite Waiver Form

Prerequisites are courses that are required and must be taken prior to registering for certain classes. Prerequisites are a necessary foundation for student success. GRCC may prevent a student from enrolling in a class if the prerequisites have not been met.

Students requesting a prerequisite waiver must complete the electronic form below, providing an upload of an unofficial transcript that shows the prerequisite requirement was met. If you do not have an electronic copy of your transcript, please still complete the form below and drop off a hard copy of the transcript to the appropriate academic department.

If you are granted a prerequisite waiver, that does not guarantee you will be able to enroll in a class. You will be contacted via email or phone when a decision has been made about your request.

For MATH, please note: Students must submit a prerequisite waiver form for Math classes only if the prerequisite has been taken in the past year. Otherwise, the student will need to take the ALEKS placement test by either logging into their Online Center or by coming to the Enrollment Center on campus.

For waivers in other subject areas, please use the School of Workforce Development Prerequisite Waiver Form.
