Petition to Repeat a Course
Chabot-Las Positas Community College District – Las Positas College
California Title V Regulations, as amended, determine the conditions and processes related to repetition, enrollment, and apportionment limits at California Community Colleges. An
“Enrollment” occurs when a student receives an evaluative OR non-evaluative symbol on their official transcript per section 55023 (A,B,C,D,F,FW,P,NP,NC,CR OR W,I,IP,RD,MW). Only a
Military Withdrawal (MW) does not count toward “enrollment.” Unless a course is noted as “repeatable” officially, the student who receives a satisfactory grade (C,CR, or higher) cannot
repeat the course, unless an exemption applies per section 55042 (b). If a student receives a sub-standard grade and/or withdraws from the course, the student is allowed to enroll in that course
TWO more times (for a total maximum of THREE enrollments) per section 58161. California Title V Regulations specify the circumstances under which a student may repeat a course per
sections 55040-55045. This document is required for approval of repetitions beyond the limits noted in California Title V Regulations.
