arrow Previous bar Next arrow

(a) Districts may only designate the following types of courses as repeatable:

(1) Courses for which repetition is necessary to meet the major requirements of CSU or UC for completion of a bachelor's degree. The governing board of a district must retain supporting documentation that verifies that the repetition is necessary to meet the major requirements of CSU or UC for completion of a bachelor's degree. The supporting documentation must be retained by the district as a Class 3 record basic to audit as required by section 59020 et seq.;

(2) Intercollegiate athletics, as defined in section 55000; and

(3) Intercollegiate academic or vocational competition, as defined in section 55000, where enrollment in the course and courses that are related in content, as defined in 55000, is limited to no more than four times for semester courses or six times for quarter courses. This enrollment limitation applies even if the student receives a substandard grade or ?W? during one or more of the enrollments in such a course or petitions for repetition due to extenuating circumstances as provided in section 55045.

(b) The district must identify all courses which are repeatable and designate such courses in its catalog.

(c) When a course is repeated pursuant to this section, the grade received each time shall be included for purposes of calculating the student's grade point average, except if the course is repeated pursuant to another section of this article that permits district policy to allow the previous grade(s) to be disregarded.

(d) Notwithstanding the limitations above, apportionment will be limited as set forth in section 58161.
