Satisfying Prerequisites

  • A "prerequisite" is a requirement that you must complete a certain course before you can take another course. 
  • A "corequisite" is a requirement that you take a certain course at the same time that you are enrolled in another course.

You may not have to take a prerequisite or corequisite at De Anza if you can satisfy certain criteria, which is sometimes called "clearing a prerequisite." 

Please review the Prerequisite Clearance Admitted Student Information document or check the Admissions and Records Office's Prerequisite Clearance website before submitting the form to request a prerequisite clearance.
