Can I take math classes at a different college?

<p>I was gonna go to Los Angeles City College this Fall, and the one class I NEED to get into this fall is Trigonometry, so I can take Precalc during Spring 11 which is the lowest UC transferable math class. If I take Precalc during Spring 11 I'll have a shot at transferring to the TAGable UCs by 2012. (right? im not entirely sure) I just finished Intermediate Algebra at IRVINE VALLEY COLLEGE, and in most colleges, its Int. Algebra > Trig > Precalc.</p>

<p>However, the LACC counselor told me that their math dept. is different: Int. Algebra > COLLEGE GEOMETRY > Trig > Precalc. i've never taken college geometry. Since LACC doesnt have summer school, This means ill have to take Geometry this fall and Precalc during Fall 11, delaying my transfer even further. </p>

<p>But, the other college I was thinking about going to, Santa Monica College, doesnt require college geometry. It's the standard Algebra > Trig > Precalc. that way the problem of "college geometry" wouldnt be a problem anymore. Would i be allowed to take only math classes at SMC while taking everything else at LACC, since SMCs math dept. isnt so restrictive?</p>

<p>i don't think i'll be able to go to SMC fulltime because a lot of their classes are already full and the commute is a b!tch (i live in the Koreatown area of LA)</p>

<p>if this wont work.......any other suggestions/ideas? im in such a crappy position right now.</p>

<p>and this is happening because my sudden unplanned move to LA. i literally had 2 weeks to pack my bags and move from Irvine to LA, in case you're wondering why i didnt know this stuff sooner.</p>

<p>You can attend two colleges at once. You don't have to be full-time in either college.</p>

<p>it wouldnt be considered shady to only do math at a different college because of differing math departments...right?</p>

<p>no, i did my math at a completely different college and the UCs saw no problem with it.</p>

<p>wow thanks that helps alot. did you get into a UC yet? which one? if you dont mind me asking</p>


<p>Hey I am pretty sure that at Glendale College taking college algebra and trigonometry is the same as precal</p>

<p>College Algebra>>Trigonometry>>Calculus 1
Precalculus (You have to test into)>>Calculus 1</p>
