Course Repetition Policy Change
Effective summer 2012, students will be limited to enrolling in the same non-repeatable class a maximum of three times. This applies to students who have earned a substandard grade (D, F, NP/NC) or who have dropped with a "W."
Starting with registration for spring 2012, students will be notified if they are enrolling in the same course for a second time. Students will be blocked from registration and required to submit a petition. Students are urged to manage course load, be aware of the number of enrollments for a specific course, carefully consider dropping courses, and understand all deadlines. In addition, students are urged to take advantage of tutoring and other support services to achieve successful completion of all courses.
If you are unclear if your class is repeatable or non-repeatable, please refer to the college catalog. If you need further assistance, see a college counselor.
Located on the main campus in Room CO-300, the Center for Academic Support is here to assist you with an array of free services designed to strengthen your academic skills in multiple disciplines.
