Academic Renewal Policy
Per California Code of Regulations, § 55046, the Academic Renewal process permits students the opportunity to
petition to have up to 24 units of substandard academic work completed within the West Valley Mission Community
College District (WVMCCD) disregarded from their cumulative grade point average when such work does not reflect
their current demonstrated ability. If Academic Renewal is approved, the student’s permanent record will be noted
with Academic Renewal comments and the units will be removed. The renewed course(s) will not be removed from
the record, as the district is required to show the student’s complete and accurate academic record.
• Only substandard notations may be renewed (“D”, “F”, “NP”, “NC”).
• Coursework previously applied toward a degree, certificate or GE certification (IGETC/ CSU GE-B) at WVMCCD
are not eligible for academic renewal.
• Academic Renewal at WVMCCD does not guarantee that other colleges will accept this action.
Approval of an Academic Renewal request is subject to the following conditions:
• Since the coursework to be alleviated was completed, a student must meet one of the following conditions in the
District and/or at another regionally accredited institution (official transcripts must be attached to petition):
a. Completion of 12 with 3.0 cumulative GPA
b. Completion of 24 with a 2.0 cumulative GPA
• A period of 2 semesters must have elapsed since the substandard work.
• The College will disregard individual courses selected by the student in consultation with a Counselor.
• Courses alleviated still reflect a course attempt for the purposes of the repeat policy, pursuant to California Code of
Regulations, § 55042.
• Once applied, Academic Renewal may not be reversed.
Student must consult with a counselor before petitioning for Academic Renewal. After obtaining the Counselor’s
signature, the completed Student Petition is submitted to the Admissions & Records Office.
