Repeatability and Courses related in content
Courses are not allowed multiple enrollments unless they meet one of the following exceptions:
- If a UC or CSU campus requires a specific unit amount for a major preparation course, then the course can be repeated by any student to meet that unit requirement.
- Intercollegiate athletics courses may be repeated up to three times. An intercollegiate athletics course is a course in which a student athlete is enrolled to participate in an organized competitive sport sponsored by the district or a conditioning course which supports the organized competitive sport.
- Intercollegiate academic or vocational competition courses may be repeated up to three times. Such courses must be necessary for participation in non-athletic competitive events between students from different colleges that are sanctioned by a formal collegiate or industry governing body. Participation in the event must be directly related to course content and objectives.
Courses Related in Content (CRC)
Courses Related in Content (CRC): Active participatory courses that share a similar primary educational objective in kinesiology, visual arts, and performing arts are grouped together. The current CRC groups for art, dance, drama, kinesiology, and music are located in Appendix B, in the CPC Handbook, and in the college catalog:
Students are allowed four enrollments within each group of courses related in content (CRC), but each course in the group may be taken only once unless its catalog description indicates it is repeatable. This limitation applies even if a student receives a substandard grade or withdraws during one or more of the enrollments in such a course or petitions for repetition due to extenuating circumstances.
In specific cases in which the CSU/UC major preparation unit requirement can be attained only by enrolling more than four times in courses related in content, students are permitted the number of enrollments necessary to reach the unit requirement. When this exemption is invoked, the excess enrollments are not recorded for apportionment.
In the fall, when new courses are proposed, plans must be updated and approved by the department’s dean prior to the faculty submission of the new course proposal through CurricUNET.
