B) “Co-requisite” means a condition of enrollment consisting of a course that a student is required to simultaneously take in order to enroll in another course.
No student shall receive more than 30 semester units of credit for remedial coursework Students who need to exceed this limit shall be referred to appropriate adult noncredit education services. The following students are exempted from the limitation on remedial coursework. (1) Students enrolled in one or more courses of ESL and (2) Students identified by the district as having a learning disability as defined in Title V section 56036.
Palo Verde College requires that all students who enroll in a reading, writing, or math course, or in any course which requires a particular skill level in reading, writing, or math, complete the PVC assessment. However you are encouraged to take the assessment tests
no matter what your goal is. The results will be used along with other measures to assist
the counselor in guiding you in the selection of an education plan and in the appropriate course placements for English and Math. Photo identification and a valid PVC Student
ID number are required for placement testing and receiving test results. The placement test may be taken no more than two times in a semester and not more than three times in any two year period. For more information regarding assessment testing please refer to the College Catalog on our website
