    • T.O.P. Codes Only Used in California
    • C.I.P. – Federal Classification Systems Used in Other States

    • Would Therefore Require Legislation
    • Decided Seeking Legislative Change Unwise in Current Environment
  • Local Waiver Process Permitted Under Current Regulations for Students Making Progress
mission appropriateness of courses
Mission Appropriateness of Courses
  • A program or course must
    • Be the appropriate level for community colleges; that is, not beyond the associate degree or the first two years of college
    • Address a valid transfer, career technical, or basic skills purpose
    • At this time, not address civic education or lifelong learning
    • Not be primarily avocational or recreational
mission appropriateness of courses15
Mission Appropriateness of Courses
  • Current Concern—Courses Offered for Faculty Professional Development
    • Clearly Beyond Associate Degree Level
    • Therefore Not Eligible for Apportionment
reasonable limitations on enrollment
“Reasonable Limitations on Enrollment”
  • Recent Legal Opinion:
    • If a community college decides to limit enrollment to a cohort of students, a majority of the course sections offered need to be left for open enrollment.
    • In other words…
      • If one section is limited to a cohort students, there must be at least two sections open to all students.
skills prerequisite validation
Skills Prerequisite Validation
  • Proposed Revision of Title 5, Section 55003 to Allow for Validation of Skills Prerequisites through Content Review
