Why are there pre-requisites on classes?

Pre-requisites are put in place to help students succeed in advanced classes. In pre-requisite classes students will learn medical terminology, anatomy and physiology, CPR, HIV/AIDS, and HIPAA – all required information to successfully achieve the learning outcomes of advanced classes. Students will also be instructed on the vaccinations and background checks required for externships.

Can pre-requisite classes be waived if similar classes have been taken at other colleges?

Yes, it is possible to have classes waived. Each request is evaluated on an individual basis. Factors taken into consideration include: what the class is, where it was taken, how many credits it is, what grade was received, and how long ago the class was taken (especially important with math and science classes). To begin the process, students must supply a copy of their transcripts listing all classes they wished waived along with a completed Petition for Course Substitution/Waiver form.
