Course Repetition Exception Petition - (Supporting documentation must be attached) can only be used as a basis for a repetition if the student needs to meet a recency prerequisite. Repeating a course due to significant lapse of time (at least 36 months), where a passing grade (CR, P, or C) or better was previously earned. Districts may permit or require students to enroll again in a course in which the student received a satisfactory grade if the district has determined that a significant lapse of time has occurred since the last time the student took the course (per Title 5 section 55003) and the course is required by the district as a recency prerequisite or by another institution of higher education to which the student seeks to transfer and that institution requires the student to have taken the course more recently than the student's last enrollment. All coursework shall remain on the student's permanent record. The previous grade and credit will be disregarded in computing the GPA. If a substandard grade is received for the significant lapse of time repetition the student is not allowed to use the grade alleviation process of repeating the course.
Note about the Course Repetition Form: As of Intersession 2024, Santa Ana College’s process of registration for a third attempt course repetition has changed. Previously, after two attempts, students would lose the ability to register for the class online for their third attempt and a course repetition petition had to be submitted. Students will now be able to register for their third attempt online without submitting a petition. Because of this change, the form has now been removed from our website. Our policy on course repetitions can be found here.
