Credit Course Repetition Guidelines

July, 2013

The Chancellor’s Office Course Repetition Guidelines were developed in consultation with the System Advisory Committee on Curriculum, which includes members of the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges. The Guidelines are designed to explain Title 5 regulations on credit course repetition and assist in their implementation at local colleges. The Guidelines are labeled “preliminary” since minor changes to the Title 5 regulations governing credit course repetition are currently pending. When the changes are enacted the Chancellor’s Office will release the Course Repetition Guidelines in their final form. Specific comments and questions about the Guidelines should be sent directly to the Chancellor’s Office at

Credit Course Repetition Discussion Board

The Discussion Board was established in September of 2012 in order to assist colleges in implementing the new regulations. The responses found on the Discussion Board represent advice from the Academic Senate regarding best practices and guidance for understanding the new regulation language.
