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
- A student may only take a class three times through a combination of substandard grades (D, F, NP or NC) and withdrawals (W) on their student record.
- If a student, through a combination of substandard grades (D, F, NP or NC) and withdrawals (W), wishes to take a class for the fourth time, they must submit a petition to the Admissions and Records Office. Petitions will only be approved based on extenuating circumstances.
- Military Withdrawals do not count in terms of repetition restrictions, nor do withdrawals that occur due to fire or flood (Title 5 Sections 55024 and 58509)
- This rule does not contain a grandfather clause. If a student has already reached the maximum allotted number of course repetitions, they will not be able to enroll in the class again within the Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District..
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.
