The California Community College Board of Governors recently passed revisions to Title 5 regarding course repetition that will take effect during the 2012 summer semester. Students will only be allowed to enroll in a course three times if they received a substandard grade (D, F, NP or NC) or withdrew from the class with a “W.” Students with extenuating circumstances may seek approval to enroll in a course for the fourth time through the petition process. These changes do not contain a grandfather clause so any student that has already taken a course the maximum number of times will no longer be able to take the same class within the Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District.
On June 11, 2011 the Board of Governors, the governing body for the California Community Colleges, adopted new regulations that limit the number of times a community college district could receive state funding for a student who has enrolled in the same credit course. The maximum number of times a student may enroll in the same credit course is three times.
These changes are effective Summer 2012. Please keep these changes in mind as you plan your course schedule. If you need support, you are encouraged to see a counselor or participate in the array of student support services and tutoring available on campus.
