Prerequisite Policy

BARTonline is obligated to verify prerequisite eligibility for all courses requiring a prerequisite. Prerequisite documentation is required for all students, regardless of their degree-seeking status with Barton.

Prerequisite documentation may include unofficial transcripts, student progress reports, or test scores that are less than five years old. Accuplacer placement testing may be available for courses with an English and/or Math prerequisite. For placement testing information, please visit the Placement Testing webpage.

Courses with Prerequisites webpage  

Students without prerequisite documentation on file will not be allowed to enroll in the course(s) at the time of enrollment. Students will receive a Prerequisite Error message in their PAWS account at the time of enrollment, which will direct them instructions on how to proceed with submitting proof of prerequisite or to information regarding the online Accuplacer exam. If you are needing to submit documentation or you have questions regarding the prerequisite please email prereq@bartonccc.edu.

Students that fail to submit proper prerequisite documents or successful Accuplacer scores by midnight (CST) on the 1st Monday of the session, will not be allowed to enroll in their prerequisite course(s) for the selected session. 

For more information or questions about the BARTonline Prerequisite Policy, contact prereq@bartonccc.edu
