New 3 Repeat Rule

All Students Please Read
Beginning Summer 2012: New 3 Repeat Rule

EFFECTIVE SUMMER 2012, course withdrawal (“W”) or a substandard  grade (“D,” “F,” or “NP”) count as an attempt at a course.  Only three attempts at any one course will be allowed, with some exceptions.  Listed below are the new rules that all students need to know about. 
• Students who drop or are excluded after the last day to drop without a grade of “W” will have a “W” appear on their transcript.  The “W” will count as an attempt for that course. 
• For the Fall semester, September 9,  2013 is the last day to drop a 16-week semester length class without a “W.”  Students will be  able to drop a class online until this date. Contact the office of Admissions and Records for deadlines on late start, short-term and special program classes.
• A course in a student’s transcript which currently shows a recorded “W” counts as an attempt for that course.   
• Students will not be allowed to register for any course within the LACCD if there are three recorded attempts for that course in any combination of W, D, F, or NP grades.
• Add permits for a course within the LACCD will not be processed if there are three recorded attempts for that course in any combination of W, D, F, or NP grades.
• For courses specifically designated as “repeatable,” students may repeat up to three times (See Title 5 California Code of Regulations sections 55040, 55041, 58161).  
• Where the student’s number of enrollments in a course exceeds the allowable amount, the student may petition for an additional enrollment in cases of extenuating circumstances.  

What students should do: 
• Be sure you are academically ready for classes you enroll in.
• If you must drop a course, drop before the specifi ed deadline for dropping a class without a grade of “W.”



If you require special accommodations for a disability, religious holiday, or any other reason please inform your instructor(s) within the first week of the course and we will accommodate you if at all possible. For accommodations due to disability, you must consult with the Disabled Students Programs and Services Office after which we will abide by their recommendations.
