Course Repeatability Rules and Course Families

Repeating Courses for Credit

In the past, many classes at Citrus College were defined as “Repeatable,” meaning that a student could take these classes for credit and receive a passing grade more than one time. These included Kinesiology activity classes, hands-on and performance classes in Visual and Performing Arts and Communications, Co-operative Education classes, and classes designed specifically for students in the DSPS program.

Changes to the regulations governing community colleges statewide mean that most of these courses are no longer considered generally repeatable. Courses that remain repeatable include:

  1. Competitive Athletics and Conditioning courses (KIN courses numbered 200 and up and KINC courses)
  2. Academic courses specifically designed for students to participate in a state-recognized competition
  3. Courses that must be repeated to meet lower-division degree requirements at transfer institutions
  4. Cooperative work experience courses as long as the student does not exceed 16 units in all types of cooperative work experience education.

The rules also allow individual students to apply to repeat courses in DSPS and adapted physical education. See AP 4225 Course Repetition for more detail.

Course Families

In addition to the changes in repeatability rules, certain courses in Kinesiology and Visual and Performing Arts are grouped into “families” giving similar educational experiences. These families are listed below as well as in the individual disciplines in which they apply (ART, DANC, KIN, MUSC, MUSE, MUSP, and THEA).

Within any given course family, students are only permitted four “experiences” while enrolled at Citrus College. An experience in this case is defined as taking a course and receiving any letter grade, including a substandard grade (D, F, NP, or W). Once a student has received four experiences in a given family, they will not be permitted to enroll in any other class within that family, even to alleviate a sub-standard grade.

This limitation applies to courses taken prior to Fall 2013. So if a student has already received a grade in three courses within a given family, then they will only be permitted one more attempt at a course within that family. If a student has four or more experiences in a given family prior to Fall 2013, they will not be permitted to attempt any more classes in that family.

Although some families have more than four courses in them, a student will only be permitted to take four of the courses in the family.

Note: Students can not receive credit for the same course more than one time unless it is specifically designated a repeatable course (see Repeating Courses for Credit above).
