- How will this new regulation affect
The new regulation will only allow students three
attempts to successfully complete a course. If the
student fails to receive a passing grade after three
attempts, they must petition in order to try one
- I already took a course three times,
does this mean I have to petition in order to take
the same course during the Summer 2012 semester?
Correct, you must submit a petition in order to
take a class one more time. Students must meet specific
criteria in order to be allowed to take the course
one additional time.
- How do I find out if I took a class three times already?
The best way is to check your academic history on WebAdvisor. A good rule of thumb
is if the course you wish to repeat is listed on your academic history, it counts as an attempt.
- What are the criteria to take a class
the fourth time?
Students must demonstrate one or more of the following:
- The student was not able to
complete the course the third time
due to extenuating circumstances
beyond the control of the student.
- The student needs to complete
the course for state mandated training
for employment purposes.
- The course is defined as a repeatable
course as defined by Title 5.
- The course is required through
the disabled students program.
- A significant lapse of time
has occurred since the student last
took the course.
- What happens if I already took a class
You will not be allowed to take the course within
the Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District.
- I was forced to withdrawal from a class
due to military orders, does this count as an attempt?
No, withdrawals due to active duty military orders
are considered a military withdrawal and do not
count as one of the three attempts.
