Prerequisites Information

Prerequisites, corequisites, recommended preparation, and limitations on enrollment, if any, are noted in course descriptions in the college catalog and in the "Details" section of the online schedule. Students are responsible for meeting the prerequisite, corequisite, recommended preparation, and/or limitation for any course in which they intend to enroll.

There are various ways by which students may clear prerequisites. Some of the most common ways include taking and passing course prerequisites at IVC, submitting college transcripts or AP results, or by taking an assessment test.

Courses from Other Colleges and AP Scores

Students may submit transcripts or AP Score Reports to clear course prerequisites if they have completed any of the following:

  • A course at another college with a C or better equivalent to an IVC course prerequisite
  • An Advanced Placement exam that is equivalent to an IVC course prerequisite
