Abstract of Title 5 Regulations (Matriculation Model District Policy) Regarding Prerequisites, Corequisites and Advisories on Recommended Preparation.
Focusing on prerequisites, corequisites, and advisories on recommended preparation for existing courses in California's Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District (GCCCD), this document explains new Title 5 regulations adopted by the district Board in October 1994 and provide guidelines for implementation. The following sections are provided: (1) an overview of the new regulations; (2) definitions of prerequisites, corequisites, and advisories on recommended preparation, including a chart of seven types of requisite courses (i.e., standard, sequential, cross-discipline, basic skills, performance, health and safety, and recency) and methods of justification for each; (3) a discussion of content reviews, or course-by-course determinations of what is appropriate in establishing requisites, and data collection in the GCCCD, used to validate the relationship between requisites and improved performance in target courses; (4) a description of five suggested steps in performing a content review, including assembling a faculty panel, identifying fundamental entrance skills, matching exit skills of required courses to the entrance skills, obtaining the appropriate forms, and keeping copies of forms and worksheets; (5) a review of procedures available to students to challenge prerequisites, including grounds for challenges; and (6) additional rules related to the identification of requisites in official college publications and methods for determining student satisfaction of requisites. Appendixes provide sample content review forms related to entrance, corequisite, and exit skills. (TGI)
