Change in No Penalty Drop Date
  • The last day to drop without a “W” notation will be the day before census, effective Summer 2012.
  • This change in the “No Penalty Drop Date” is required to avoid losing a large amount of apportionment funding.
  • The new Title 5 regulations also include the fact that census active students who drop prior to a “W” cannot be claimed for state apportionment.
  • In fall 2011, the LACCD processed 21,000 drops or the equivalent of almost 2,700 FTES.

Current Title 5 Regulations on Repetitions That Everyone Should Know

Los Angeles Community College District

repetition of courses in which a satisfactory grade was recorded
Repetition of Courses in Which a Satisfactory Grade Was Recorded

A course for which a grade of “A”, “B”, “C”, “CR”, or “P” was earned may be repeated under the following circumstances (see Board rule 6701.20):

  • Legally mandated training- a student may repeat a course when course repetition is necessary to enable a student to meet a legally mandated training requirement as a condition of volunteer or paid employment. There is no limit to the number of times a student can repeat a legally mandated training course. (5 CCR 55041.)
  • Significant lapse of time- a student may repeat any course for which there has been a significant lapse of time (i.e. years have passed since the student originally took the class and the district has defined and published a significant lapse of time requirement). (5 CCR 55043.)

  • Extenuating circumstances- a student may repeat a course regardless of the grade (substandard or passing) upon a finding of extenuating circumstances that justifies a repetition such as fire, flood or other extraordinary circumstances (See Board rule 6701.20; 5 CCR 55045. )
  • Disability related accommodation- a student with a disability may repeat a special class for students with disabilities any number of times, based on an individualized determination that such a repetition is required as a disability-related accommodation for that particular student (See Board rule 6701.20; 5 CCR 56029, 5 CCR 58161.)

  • Activity course – a course where the student meets the course objective by repeating a similar primary educational activity and the student gains an expanded educational experience each time the course is repeated. Students may repeat (not to exceed 3 repeats). (See E-103; 5 CCR 55041.)
