                                COURSE REPETITION Course Repetition Definition
A “course repetition” occurs when a student attempts a course and receives an evaluative or non-evaluative symbol for the course (i.e. A, B, C, D, F, W, P/NP, RD, I) and wishes to enroll again in the same course. Course repetition includes the following components. (Title 5 Section 55040)
Course Repetition To Alleviate Substandard Work
A student who has earned a substandard grade (D, F, and NP) may repeat the course to improve the grade. A student may attempt a course a maximum of three times. To alleviate substandard work, a “course attempt” occurs when a student receives an evaluative or non-evaluative symbol for the course (D, F, W, or NP). All course attempts in a student’s academic record count toward this enrollment limitation. The first or first and second substandard grades and units are excluded in computing the student’s GPA. The grade and units for the third or final attempt are included in the student’s GPA.
(Title 5 Section 55042)
Course Repetition As A Result of a Withdrawal
A “W” counts as a course attempt. A student may attempt a course a maximum of three times. All course attempts in a student’s academic record count toward this enrollment limitation.
1. A Student Earning A Satisfactory Grade May Not Enroll In The Same Course Again Unless One Of The Following Five Exception Applies
Significant Lapse of Time
A student may enroll for one additional attempt if he/she successfully completed the course and a significant lapse of time of more than 36 months has occurred since the student was awarded a grade in the course AND the district has established a recency prerequisite for the course or an institution of higher education to which the student seeks to transfer has established a recency requirement that applies to the course. (Example: Biology 110 was completed with a grade of C in Fall 2011. In Fall 2013 the student is preparing to apply to a nursing program that requires Biology 110 to be completed within the last three years. The student is eligible to repeat the course in Spring 2015 with documentation of the recency requirement.) The grade and units from the first course completion will be disregarded in computing the GPA.
(Title 5 Section 55043)
2. Variable Unit Courses
A student may enroll in a variable unit course as many times as necessary to complete one time the entire curriculum and unit value of the course. However, a student may not repeat any portion of a variable unit course that has already be completed and evaluated. (Title 5 Section 55044)
