Students may choose to enroll in remedial coursework and are limited to no more than 30 semester units of credit for remedial coursework unless exempt by statute. These nondegree-applicable basic skills credit courses are taught in reading, writing, computation, and English as a Second Language, and are numbered in the 500 series. Students enrolled in English as a Second Language and students identified by the District as having a learning disability are exempted from the unit limitation. Students may petition for a waiver of the unit limitation if they show significant, measurable progress toward the development of skills appropriate to enrollment in degree-applicable credit courses. For further details, contact a counselor.
