IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR STUDENTS LACKING PREREQUISITES
If you lack the prerequisite for a course, WebSMART will block your registration. This will happen even if you already have a degree or professional experience that is the equivalent of the prerequisite. Unfortunately it will also happen if you already completed another course with the same prerequisite. You will have to submit a petition for equivalency or challenge for the prerequisite course.
You can get more information here.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR WAITLISTED STUDENTS
When you reach the top of the waitlist and a space opens up for you, WebSMART will send an email message to your my.smccd.edu email. So you must check your email daily. You can forward your my.smccd.edu email to your preferred email address. Your my.smccd.edu email address can be seen in WebSMART. See the my.smccd.edu website for additional information.
