Course Repetition Policy

A course may not be repeated for credit or for grade point average improvement if a grade of C or better has been earned. The registration system will prevent you from repeating a course that is currently in progress, one in which you have received a passing grade, or if you have exceeded the repeat limit. Any exception to this regulation must be approved by petition prior to registration.

Courses in which you have previously earned a substandard grade (D, F, FW, NC, or NP) may be repeated unless otherwise indicated by course descriptions found in the current college Catalog.

The California Community Colleges, Board of Governors passed a regulation to limit the amount of times a student can enroll in a course. Effective Summer 2012, students are limited to the amount of times he or she can enroll in one type of course.

For example, if you are taking Math 110, and you receive a substandard grade (D, F, FW, or NP) or a Withdrawal (W) the first time you take it, you will be allowed to enroll in the course again. If you receive a substandard grade (D, F, FW, or NP) or a Withdrawal (W) the second time you take it, you will be allowed to enroll in the course only one more time. The third time you enroll in the course will be the last time you will be able to enroll in the course.

The withdrawal on your transcript will count towards your progress for academic standing and for Financial Aid.
