Substandard Grade

21 November 2016

You may repeat any course in which you received a grade of D, F, FW, NP, IP, NC or W, on your transcript.  However, per Title 5 regulations*, the student can only repeat the course twice (thus can only take the course three times) to alleviate a substandard grade, or complete a course in which a “W” was received. The most recent grade and units will be counted for transcript purposes. This is a procedure of the Peralta Community College District and may reflect procedures of four-year institutions.

*State regulations restrict the number of courses that you can repeat for credit, and the number of times that you can repeat them.  The college and the district comply with the state Title 5 regulations on course repeatability.

  • You may repeat a course two (2) times in an effort to alleviate substandard academic work (D, F, FW, NP, or NC) or received a “W”.  
  • You may only repeat an activity course a maximum of three (3) times.  *Activity courses include Physical Education, Theater (performance), Dance, fine arts/studio arts, music (performance), etc.

Administrative Procedure 4225 Course Repetition and Repeatable Courses

 Submit the  Course Repetition to the Vice President of Student Services or Administrative designee for approval.
