Clear your Prerequisites before your registration date!

Before your online registration date check to see if your class has a prerequisite. Prerequisites must be cleared prior to enrollment. Plan ahead and take care of this as early as possible to avoid waiting in long lines and possible delays to your enrollment in important classes.

1. Prerequisite/co-requisite completed at another college (not Fullerton College or Cypress College),
2. The course you want to enroll in is not in the English, Reading, ESL or Math subject areas

What you must do:

  • fill out the Fullerton College Prerequisite Equivalency Form and bring to the Fullerton College Admissions and Records Department. Forms will NOT be accepted by fax or mail.

  • You must attach proof of course completion (transcripts with a grade of C or better) to the form - unofficial transcripts are acceptable. For out of state and private universities/colleges, you must also provide supporting documentation (course descriptions or outlines).

  • Courses completed prior to 1995 must be accompanied with a copy of course descriptions.

  • Your petition will not be reviewed if transcripts/documentation are not attached and/or the form is not complete.

  • Please allow a minimum of 5 working days for processing time.

  • Check the outcome of your petition by logging onto myGateway.

    • On the myGateway homepage, check under Registration Tools

    • Click on Registration Status

    • Select a Term

    • Pre-requisite Clearance is under Registration Permits & Overrides

  • If your petition has been denied, an email notification will be sent to you.


Because classes fill up very quickly, it is recommended that you take care of this as soon as possible to avoid possible delays to your enrollment in important classes.
