TITLE 5 Changes:

Repetition and Withdrawal

San Diego Community College District

Lynn Ceresino Neault, Vice Chancellor

Student Services

September 25, 2008


Facts
Facts

  • Allowable repeats depend upon the order the student earns a grade/symbol.

  • When the student earns a grade, repetition checking begins to “count” the number of repeats, regardless of the symbol received.

  • “…may allow the previous grade(s) and credit(s) to be disregarded in computing the student’s GPA each time the course is repeated.”


Title 5 changes

55042 Repetition to Alleviate Substandard WorkDistrict policy may permit a student to repeat a course, which is designated as non-repeatable, two times in an effort to alleviate substandard work.

  • Pros:

    • Both previous grades and credits may be disregarded in the GPA calculation.

    • District may be funded for each enrollment up to a maximum

      of 3.

  • Cons:

    • Student may not enroll in the course a 4th time, even if funding is not claimed, unless there are documented extenuating circumstances (see 55045).

    • If a student is permitted to repeat a class after he/she has already earned 4 W’s, the student will not be allowed another “W,” he/she must receive a grade or symbol other than a “W.”

    • If a student is permitted to repeat a class after he/she has already earned 4 W’s, due to extenuating circumstances, a “W” may be assigned but not claimed for funding.

  • Withdrawal

    • Require student to petition for enrollment in a course and meet with a counselor after the 4th withdrawal, acknowledging a 5th withdrawal is not permitted, a letter grade or other symbol will be assigned, or

    • Allow student to enroll using Reg-e but add text box for the student to acknowledge a 5th withdrawal is not permitted, a letter grade or other symbol will be assigned.

  • Grade Point Average

    • Exclude previous grades and credits in GPA (examples show this method), or

    • Include all previous grades and credits in GPA.

  • Con

    • Interaction between grades and “W’s” has changed and difficult to explain.

55043 Significant Lapse of TimeDistrict policy may permit a student to repeat a course where the student received a satisfactory grade the last time he/she took the course, for one of the following reasons:

  • Recency – The district has a properly established and published recency prerequisite for the course.

  • Improve skill/knowledge – Years have passed since the student originally took the class and the district has defined and published a significant lapse of time requirement.

  • Course required by another institution – another institution which the student seeks to transfer has established a published recency requirement which the student will not be able to satisfy without repeating the course.

  • Continued


Title 5 changes

55043 Significant Lapse of TimeDistrict policy may permit a student to repeat a course where the student received a satisfactory grade the last time he/she took the course, for one of the following reasons:

  • Pros:

    • Previous grade and credit may be disregarded in the GPA calculation.

    • District may be funded for one additional repeat.

    • Policy must be established and published.

  • Cons:

    • Defining “Significant Lapse of Time”

    • Establishing and publishing recency prerequisites in a timely manner; must be at course level.

    • Can affect graduation requirements.

  • Note: A student may only enroll under this provision, in a repeatable activity course, if he/she has already exhausted the number of repetitions permitted.

  • 1. Grade Point Average

    • Exclude previous grades and credits in GPA (examples show this method), or

    • Include all previous grades and credits in GPA.

      If excluded, will “remove” previous grade/credit used for a degree requirement.


Title 5 changes

55045 Extenuating CircumstancesDistrict policy may permit a student to file a petition to the governing board/designee to repeat a course in which the previous grade was at least in part the result of extenuating circumstances. Extenuating circumstances are defined as verified cases of accidents, illness, or other circumstances beyond the control of the student.

  • Pros:

    • Previous grade(s) and credit(s) may be disregarded in the GPA calculation.

    • District may be funded for two additional repeats.

    • Policy must be developed.

  • Cons:

    • Increase in the number of student petitions.

    • Extenuating circumstances must be defined and documented.

  • Note: District may allow additional repeats for extenuating circumstances, beyond the two allowed in this provision, but may not claim for apportionment.

Policy Decisions

extenuating circumstances

Define extenuating circumstances (Chancellor’s office expectation is that these will be minimal).

Define required documentation.

Define approval process.


Title 5 changes

55024 Withdrawal LimitationDistrict policy shall establish the number of times, not to exceed four, that a student may withdraw and receive a “W” symbol on his/her record.

  • Pros:

    • Current policy limits “W’s” to a maximum of 4 (combination of grades and W’s).

  • Cons:

    • The student may not withdraw a 5th (or more) time unless due to approved extenuating circumstances.

    • If the student is allowed to enroll a 5th time after earning four W’s, the student must receive a grade or other nonevaluative symbol in accordance with Title 5.


Title 5 changes

Examples withdrawal

COMBINED WITH OTHER EXAMPLES:

Example 4 – non-repeatable course; maximum W’s earned

Example 7 – repeatable course; maximum 4 W’s earned and maximum 4 grades earned

Example 8 – repeatable course; maximum 4 W’s earned, one standard grade, no more enrollment allowed.

Example 9 – repeatable course; maximum of 4 W’s earned, two repetitions of a substandard grade.

Example 12 – non-repeatable course; maximum enrollment with lapse of time.

Example 14 – maximum of 4 W’s earned with a 5th W due to extenuating circumstances.

Example 15 – maximum of 4 W’s earned with additional withdrawals due to military service.


Title 5 changes

55024 Withdrawal LimitationMilitary WithdrawalStudents who are active or a reserve member of the United States military may withdraw with orders compelling service.

  • Pros: (current policy)

    • Class is not included in the progress probation/disqualification calculation.

    • There is no limit on the number of times a district may claim apportionment for students withdrawing due to military orders.

  • Cons:

    • A military withdraw is included as a repetition on a student record if the original enrollment was due to alleviation of a substandard grade.


Example 15 military withdrawal
Example 15 military withdrawal

Maximum repetitions for withdrawals and repeat of substandard grade with military withdrawal.

20072 ENGL 101 MW

20074 ENGL 101 F – excluded in GPA

Student may only enroll due to extenuating circumstances.


Title 5 changes

55024 Withdrawal LimitationWithdrawal due to Discrimination or RetaliationStudent may withdraw from a course due to discriminatory treatment or retaliation for alleging discriminatory treatment and the W will not be included on the student academic record but the district may claim for apportionment. If the course is claimed for apportionment, it is included in the maximum of 4 W’s in any course.

  • Pros:

  • Cons:

    • The way the language is written, a student may petition to have a “W” removed if the student withdrew because he/she thought he/she was going to be discriminated against by remaining in the class (see procedure 3001.4).

    • If removed, the “W” won’t appear on student record but is included in maximum of 4 “W’s” in any course.

    • Need to modify systems significantly if we are going to claim for funding.
