Counseling

Prerequisite Override Process

All classes with prerequisites at Chabot College are blocked to students if they did not complete the prerequisite here. To remove the prerequisite block, you must process a Prerequisite Override as outlined below.

If you have already sent official (sealed) transcripts to Admissions and Records you can request a prerequisite override by submitting the Prerequisite Override Form.

Your transcripts will be forwarded to a counselor who will review your documentation and verify prerequisite course equivalency. Once your request is approved and processed,  you will be able to register for the class, provided your registration date has arrived and seats still remain in the class. You will be contacted if your request is not approved.

If you have not sent official transcripts to Admissions and Records:

In Person

  1. bring unofficial transcripts showing successful completion of equivalent prerequisite course work to the Counseling Appointment Desk on the second floor of Building 700.
  2. tell the counselor on duty that you need to override the prerequisite for the course you wish to take.
  3. fill out the top of the override form.

Counseling hours of operation for Fall Semester, August 17 through December 20, 2011 are:

Monday, Tuesday and Thursday: 8 am – 5 pm
Wednesday: 8 am - 2 pm and 4-7 pm
Friday: 8 am - 12 pm

NOTE: If you are currently taking the prerequisite course, you will need to supply a letter from the instructor on college letterhead with the following information:

  1. The name and number of the course
  2. Your name
  3. The grade the instructor expects you to receive
  4. The instructors contact phone number

After dropping off your transcript, a counselor will review your documentation and verify prerequisite course equivalency. Once your request is approved and processed,  you will be able to register for the class, provided your registration date has arrived and seats still remain in the class. You will be contacted if your request is not approved.
