District limits the number of course repetitions for students

Beginning in the summer 2012 term at all Los Rios community colleges, a newly adopted policy states that the total number of times a student can repeat a course will be reduced to only three course repetitions, regardless of notation.

“The change in [repetition] policy was prompted by changes in the State of California’s Title 5 regulations and affects all community colleges,” said Susie Williams, Vice Chancellor of the Los Rios Community College District.

According to City College’s Admissions and Records Supervisor Kim Goff, currently students can repeat a course up to seven times; four times with a “W” notation when a student withdraws from a class, and three times with a graded notation.

“The [Board of trustees] doesn’t want to fund failure anymore,” Goff said.

According to Goff, there are few repercussions for students who drop classes, which allows them to take advantage of financial aid and other benefits that are awarded based on attendance.

“The changes were implemented not to save money but to increase student success,” Williams said.

According to Goff, California spent over $100 million (when? Over what period?) on students who fail to complete courses they are enrolled in. The new policy changes will give students more incentives to complete and succeed in course they are enrolled in.

There are exceptions to these new regulations, Goff said. Students with extenuating circumstances—a death in the immediate family, military orders, or a serious illness—may appeal and take a course a fourth time.

There will continue to be classes that are marked as repeatable in the new course catalogs, such as physical education and theater arts, according to Goff.

“The goal is to [inform] the students before the [college] is forced to tell them they can’t repeat a class,” Goff said.

With these new policy changes comes new ways of keeping students informed and on track to succeed in college, she added. Students will receive an email on the second time they enroll in a course and an email accompanied by a phone call on their third enrollment in a course. With every repeat course enrollment a student must meet with a counselor.
