Title 5 § 55007
Multiple and Overlapping Enrollments.
A community college district may not permit a student to enroll in two or more sections of the same
credit course during the same term unless the length of the course is such that a student may enroll in
two or more sections of the same course during the same term without being enrolled in more than one
section at any given time. Students needing additional instruction in the subject matter while enrolled in
a course may be referred for individualized tutoring pursuant to section 58170 or supplemental learning
assistance pursuant to sections 58172 and 58164.
A district may not permit a student to enroll in two or more courses where the meeting times for the
courses overlap, unless the district has established and incorporated into its attendance accounting
procedures adopted pursuant to section 58030 a mechanism for ensuring that the following requirements
the student provides a sound justification, other than mere scheduling convenience, of the
need for the overlapping schedule;
an appropriate district official approves the schedule;
the college maintains documentation describing the justification for the overlapping schedule
and showing that the student made up the hours of overlap in the course partially or wholly not
attended as scheduled at some other time during the same week under the supervision of the
instructor of the course.
