When students earn substandard grades in individual courses they may petition to have the higher grade earned by repeating the course replace the lower grade in their GPA calculation. Courses may be repeated once for credit if a grade of D, F, NP, or NC has been earned. The original and subsequent grades will remain a part of the students permanent record.
The college can provide no assurance that repeated courses will be treated in a similar manner by other educational institutions.
The Repeat Petition is available in person at Window #6 in the Office of Admissions and Records, in the Counseling Office on the main campus, and at the Delano center. Forms for course repetition can be downloaded here and faxed to 661-395-4500.
