Procedure to Challenge Biology Prerequisite
The following are directions for the challenge procedure:
The Challenge Form can be obtained from the Assessment Center Office (Business Building, Room 109).
Completed prerequisite challenge packets must be returned to the Assessment Center Office.
Submit all required and supporting documentation to the Assessment Center in a plain 8.5 x 11 manila envelope, clearly marked with the following information:
- Students name, last name underlined
- Student’s ID# (GWC DP number)
- Date that portfolio is submitted
A statement describing the reasons for the prerequisite challenge along with all documentation necessary to support the challenge, such as transcripts, letters, etc. must be included. No further documentation will be accepted once the challenge is submitted.
The Challenge Form must be completed, signed and dated by the student. Within a “timely manner” a representative from the Golden West College Biology Department will evaluate the challenge request.
The prerequisite challenge decision will be communicated to the student by email.
The prerequisite decision is final. No further challenge is available.
The Prerequisite/Corequisite Challenge Form requires Acrobat Reader for viewing and printing. If not currently installed, it is available as a free download from Adobe's website.
