***The Counseling Department will be closed Thursday, November 25th and Friday, November 26th for the Thanksgiving Break. Any clearances submitted after 4:30pm on Wednesday, November 24th will be reviewed on Monday, November 29th***

If you need a clearance processed sooner, do not fill out this form. Please use Express Counseling for faster service. The Counseling office can take up to five business days to process your online prerequisite request, especially during the registration period.

If you submit your request after business hours, the first business day begins the next day. If you submit Friday after 1:00pm through Sunday, the first business day starts the following Monday. Clearances are not reviewed over school holidays.

You can also chat with a counselor at Express Counseling to request a prerequisite clearance: https://www.elcamino.edu/student/studentservices/counseling/express_counseling.aspx

Requests will receive a follow up email with either approval or denial. If denied, reasons will be included. PLEASE check your emails, spam folders, old email and so on, for a message from the counselor. If you haven't heard anything within a week, (after the 5 days and checking your email), then contact the Counseling department for more information.

Thank you, be safe and stay well,

Counseling and Student Success
