Peralta Digital Edition

228 SPRING 2018 Information and classes are subject to change, please see online schedule for the latest information. See our website: http://bit.ly/PeraltaOnlineSchedule Designed by Chris Gatmaitan Prerequisites Some courses have prerequisites: faculty have determined that students are highly unlikely to succeed in these courses unless they have acquired a certain level of skills or knowledge, usually through taking another course beforehand. The prerequisites for each course are listed in the class schedule. When you attempt to enroll online in a course with a prerequisite, the system checks your academic records for evidence that you have taken or are taking the prerequisites at one of the Peralta Colleges. 1. If you have taken the prerequisites at a Peralta College after 1987 and have received a grade of C or better in it, you are allowed to enroll. 2. If you are currently taking the prerequisites, you are allowed to enroll conditionally until your grade is received. If your grade in the prerequisites is below a C, you will be automatically dropped from the higher level course. You will be informed of this by Peralta email. 3. If you have met the prerequisites through a course taken at an- other college, you will need to submit proof to the counseling department. 4. If you feel the prerequisite has been met through assessment at another institution, and you have either your scores and placement recommendations or a transcript showing the courses you assessed into and enrolled in, or through other means, (this is referred to as “Multiple Measure Assessment” in the class schedule), please see a counselor. The counselor will look at your test scores and discuss your preparation for the course. If the counselor determines that you have met the prerequisites, he/she will clear you for the course and you will be allowed to enroll. 5. If you feel that you have met the prerequisites through your life experience, or you believe that the prerequisites is unnecessary or unlawful, go to the admissions office to complete and sign a Petition for Prerequisite Challenge. You will immediately be cleared to enroll, pending review of your petition by faculty. If your challenge is approved you will remain in the class. If your petition is denied, you will be dropped from the class. You will be informed of this by phone. Challenge petitions must be approved or denied within five working days of the day they were filed. If your petition is not reviewed within five working days,you will remain in the class. Co-requisites Some courses have co-requisites: faculty have determined that students are highly unlikely to succeed in these courses unless they enroll in the co-requisite course at the same time. The co-requisites for each course are listed in the class schedule. If you enroll in a course with a co-requisite, make sure to enroll in the co-requisite course as well. (If you have previously taken the co-requisite course and obtained a grade of C or better, you don’t need to enroll in it again). Open Classes It is the policy of the Peralta Community College District that, unless specifically exempted by statute, every course, course sec- tion or class, the average attendance of which is to be reported for state aid, wherever offered and maintained by the District, shall be fully opened to enrollment and participation by any person who has been admitted to the College and who meets such prerequisites as may be established pursuant to Chapter II, Division 2, Part VI, Title 5 of the California Administrative Code, commencing with Section 51820. Student Study Load In order to complete an Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degree at one of the Peralta Colleges in two years, an average unit load of 15 units per term is often necessary. Students may not carry more than 18 units (including a combined total of all Peralta Col- leges) without prior approval of a counselor. Counselor approval is required for excess units up to 21.5 units. Enrollment in 22 to 25 units requires approval of the Dean of Student Services. Under no circumstances will approval be granted beyond 25 units. The maximum number of units for the Summer Session is ten (10). For college purposes, a full-time student is one who is carrying 12 or more units. Students are not permitted to enroll in classes with conflicting or overlapping meeting times.
