                                3. Extenuating Circumstances
A student may enroll for one additional attempt only if documentable extenuating circumstances exist that match the dates of the course for the previous enrollment. Examples of extenuating circumstances are natural disaster, accident, illness, or other extraordinary documentable experience beyond the student’s control. (Title 5 Section 55045)
Third, a student with a disability may repeat a special credit class for students with disabilities any number of times based on an individualized determination that such repetition is required as a disability-related accommodation for that particular student (for reasons specified in Title V Section 56029) (Title V 55041 (d))
Fourth, repetition of credit courses for which the grades awarded were at least in part, the result of extenuating circumstances. Extenuating circumstances are verified cases of accidents, illness, or other circumstances beyond the control of the student (student must file a petition). Grades awarded for courses repeated under this subdivision shall not be counted in calculating a student’s grade point average. (Title V 55041 (e))
