As an NWACC student, you may request a prerequisite override in your WorkDay account by going to the academics dashboard and selecting "Request Course Section Prerequisite Override". You will be required to provide documentation regarding your request for an override. 

If you are currently enrolled in the prerequisite, you must submit an unofficial transcript and a final transcript two weeks prior to the beginning of classes. Failure to do so will result in being dropped from the course.

If you are submitting an unofficial college transcript, you will need to ensure that your transcript includes the following information to be considered acceptable for NWACC standards:

  1. Your first and last name
  2. At least one piece of personal identifiable information such as date of birth, address, full or partial SSN, etc.
  3. College or university name and other identifiable information (address, seal, URL including .edu, etc.)
  4. Course work completed
    1. Must include date/semester course work was completed
  5. Degree(s) awarded – if applicable

NOTE: Transcripts with in-progress course work will not be considered final.

Developmental/zero level courses are not accepted for credit but may be used as a prerequisite course for registration purposes.
