arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The governing board of each community college district shall establish procedures by which a student may petition to have completion of a noncredit course counted toward satisfaction of the requirements for an associate degree. The petition shall be granted if the instructor of the noncredit course certifies that the student has achieved competence in the subject matter at a level and with academic rigor equivalent to that required for a degree-applicable credit course.

This section shall become inoperative on July 1, 2009. After that date, a student may nevertheless seek to receive credit for knowledge or skills acquired through completion of a noncredit course in accord with section 55050.
