Policy permits a student to repeat certain activity courses for credit. Any activity course that may be repeated is so designated in the College Catalog. These courses require increasing levels of student performance or provide significantly different course content each subsequent semester. Students may also re-enroll in non-activity, variable credit courses to complete course segments not yet initiated (e.g., students who have earned 1.5 units in CBOT 417 may re-enroll in CBOT 417 for an additional 1.5 units for a total of 3 units of completion.)
Enrollment Limitations for Courses not designated as repeatable:
A student may attempt a course designated as non-repeatable a maximum of three times. A "course attempt" occurs when a student receives an evaluative or non-evaluative symbol for the course. All symbols (A,B,C,D,F,W,P,NP,C,NC,I) are identified as a "course attempt." Beginning with summer 2012, enrollment limitations (maximum of three attempts) apply to student enrollment. Furthermore, all prior course attempts in a student's academic record count toward the limit. As a result of limitations on course attempts, students' decisions to repeat or withdraw from courses may have serious implications and affect their educational planning.
One additional enrollment (a fourth enrollment) may be considered for approval under the following circumstances.
- Recency: A student may enroll one additional time if he/she successfully completed the course and the following conditions have been met:
a. A significant lapse of time of at least three years has occurred since the course was taken.
b. The enrollment is for the purpose of establishing recency in the course content, but not for the purpose of improving an established grade.
If the fourth enrollment is approved, the units and grade of the most recent attempt are not included as part of the student's grade point average or cumulative units.
- Extenuating circumstances: A student may only enroll for o9ne additional attempt if documentable extenuating circumstances exist. Examples of extenuating circumstances are fire, flood, accident, or other extraordinary documentable conditions beyond the student's control.
