(1) the student provides a sound justification, other than mere scheduling convenience, of the need for the overlapping schedule;

(2) an appropriate district official approves the schedule;

(3) the college maintains documentation describing the justification for the overlapping schedule and showing that the student made up the hours of overlap in the course partially or wholly not attended as scheduled at some other time during the same week under the supervision of the instructor of the course.
