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.
