Academic Standards Handbook

4.9 Prerequisites

A prerequisite is a requirement (or its equivalent) that must be met before a student is admitted into a course.  A prerequisite may be a specific high school course, another Northeastern Junior College course or a demonstrated proficiency.  Prerequisites may be waived on the basis of diagnostic testing and/or the recommendation of an appropriate faculty member or Department Chair.

All students at the college are expected to demonstrate proficiency in basic communication, mathematics and reading skills necessary to be successful in college level courses.  During or prior to pre-registration/orientation sessions, basic skills will be evaluated for course advising and placement.
