It is the student’s responsibility to file all transcripts of previous college work and to file the petition(s) by the deadline date during the semester in which he/she plans to complete the requirements. See the Academic Calendars in the General Information section of the Catalogs or in the Class Schedules for deadline dates.
The student with a specific educational objective may follow the appropriate curriculum patterns outlined in the Announcement of Courses in the catalogs. Each pattern is designed for preparation for an occupational field and/or enrollment at a four year institution. Although the information is in most cases current, the student is cautioned to check with a counselor for changes. It is the responsibility of the student to monitor progress toward individual educational goals.
Students’ catalog rights are based on continuous enrollment in any of the Peralta Colleges, excluding summer session. Students’ catalog rights include:
- The regulations in effect at the time that the student entered the college, provided the student has been in continuous attendance until the Degree/Certificate is awarded; OR
- The regulations current at the time the student reenters the major program and remains in continuous attendance until the Degree/Certificate is awarded; OR
- The regulations current at the time the student files and receives the Degree/Certificate.
*All students, regardless of the date of entering any one of the Peralta Colleges, must fulfill the General Education requirements specified in the 1991-93 or subsequent catalogs for the Associate Degree.
NOTE: While a course might satisfy more than one General Education requirement, it may not be counted more than once for this purpose (see exception for Ethnic Studies courses). The withdrawal symbol (“W”) constitutes enrollment.
Please see a counselor for more information regarding Associate Degree and Certificate Requirements.
