The Design Technology Department has the same academic policies and procedures as Santa Monica College. To enroll in classes, students must first complete the Santa Monica College Admissions process. Please see the Admissions section of the SMC website for Admissions information and requirements.
All Design Technology courses are open to enrollment by any student who has been accepted to the college except where prerequisites are indicated. The term “prerequisite” may also refer to “corequisites” which are courses for which concurrent enrollment is required for enrollment in another.
Students may wish to “challenge” prerequisite or corequisite requirements. To obtain a prerequisite challenge form, please speak with the Design Technology counselor.
All international students must have an F1 visa to study in the United States. It is important to know that an international student must be a full-time student (12 units or more) to maintain F1 visa status.
International Students are strongly advised to talk to an academic counselor to assist them with the admission process.
Enrollment Fees for Design Technology classes are the same as for all other classes at Santa Monica College.
