Helpful Registration Hints
Know how to identify prerequisites. Avoid surprises by knowing where to look for prerequisites before you register. Requirements
for classes are listed in the Course Catalog.
Know what satisfies a prerequisite. Taking the prerequisite class at STLCC is the most straightforward way to satisfy
a requirement, but you can also submit a current schedule or transcript from another
college, or petition for Credit for Prior Learning (CPL) from a department chair. CPL includes AP scores.
Work with an academic advisor. An academic advisor can help you determine if you’re eligible for a course or evaluating
credit to satisfy a prerequisite.
Take a placement test. Make sure to meet your reading proficiency by taking our placement test. If you’ve
scored an 18 or above on the reading and English portion of the ACT you’re already
set. ACT math scores of 22 or above will also waive the need for placement testing.
