Procedures for Repetition – Significant Lapse of Time

Students may be permitted or required to repeat courses in which a “C” or better grade was earned where there was a significant lapse of time since the grade was obtained and:

  • An institution of higher education to which a student wishes to transfer has established a recency requirement that the student cannot satisfy without repeating the course;
  • The student has submitted a Petition to Repeat to Enrollment Services with documentation of a recency prerequisite.

When a student needs to repeat an activity course due to a significant lapse of time, each repetition attempt will be counted toward the established repetition limits. However, if a student has already exhausted the number of permitted repetitions, then an additional repetition due to significant lapse of time may be permitted.

When a course is repeated due to a significant lapse of time, the District shall disregard the previous grade and credit when computing a student’s grade point average.
